Price of sporting glory too high to bear

Posting a link to a THES article that showed up in one of my Google alerts, in case it's of interest to anyone.

Re: Price of sporting glory too high to bear

thx for the info.

"Much of the rising cost of athletics departments is falling on students, whose mandatory fees for housing, food and activities - including subsidies for athletics - have increased 13 per cent faster than those for tuition between 2005 and 2009."

Re: Price of sporting glory too high to bear

The article does not address the way that sports provide an ongoing connection between alumni and their school.

Re: Price of sporting glory too high to bear

When I saw the word "bear" instead of "bare" in Embittered's post I thought it was a story about Cal or Baylor.


If you don't like paying athletic fees there are good Division 2 or 3 schools you can attend instead.

Re: Price of sporting glory too high to bear

"Bear" is correct...as in bearing a load.

"Bare" means without covering - naked.

Re: Price of sporting glory too high to bear

I would like to add that 'bear' is in Latin Fero, which is a SUPER tricky word since it's conjugation is SO irregular

fero, ferre, tuli, latum,

are you kidding me?
