SPSS is VERY easy to learn and would probably be good enough for beginning work. Most people I know...
I know this has been covered some earlier in the thread, but I would like some more discussion of the topic. I'm currently a poli sci undergrad who has written professional level academic papers. I have a working knowledge of statistics and statistical programs. I feel that the academic work I've done demonstrates a fairly high level of analytical ability.

I think what has been said already is that many universities already basically privatize their athletics. Funding...
I know for a fact that LSU's athletic department is self-sustaining. The Tiger Athletic Foundation is the primary vehicle for this. The foundation is the organization that pays Les Mile's salary. I also know that at LSU the various non-profitable sports are funded by the revenues that LSU football and the various licensing agreements bring in. I haven't noticed anybody bringing up the point that LSU generates income by licensing various merchandise companies, etc. to use...
