    It goes to a video that works but the article is behind a paywall. Is there a way around it...? I know the NY Times paywall can be circumvented by cutting and pasting the URL into Google. But it didn't work for this one.

    Anyway, this story (the snippets I could read) is hardly surprising. I teach at a small liberal arts college with pretty small overhead - we had to trim down in recent years as enrollment suffered with the recession. But U of Tennessee down the road has gone through tons of Deans, paying them tons, and jacking up tuition for students. And building lots of hideous buildings on an already hideous campus. And the athletic department there is in shambles. Glad I'm at a D-III school.
