    Science may be different from other academic disciplines, but condescending and (not so naively) cruel really doesn't seem to be a problem in academia.  You'll note that Sheldon isn't a department head, or, as I recall, even tenured.

    Institutions, however, love to have names they can trot out and show off.  Helps build the endowment I hear.
