Dave Ridpath keeps fighting the good fight…

… (background here), but he’ll lose. Colorado State University’s on-campus stadium will be built. It won’t matter that Dave’s got all the statistics on his side, that the cost of the thing will drive student fees way up, that it won’t attract more student applications, that desperation to win (gotta fill the stadium) will drive CSU toward troubled players (of course the school is already dealing with that) and shady coaches.

No, because decisions about things like football aren’t about reason. They’re about rich guys with harebrained schemes. These we will always have with us.
