I am so pleased to see the University of Iowa putting less emphasis on football, leaving more time for academics. Maybe this is the beginning of a new era. A time when arts, culture and education are more important than millionaire coaches and 70,000 well-meaning Iowans who have been misdirected by the sports-cultured media, who all show up at the same coliseum to watch 30 or so kids injure each other.
We envision a football team that gains untold fame by never winning a game. In a few short years, Iowa would be the envied Educated Culture Capitol of the world, boasting a very newsworthy longest football losing streak that would continue to infinity, while gaining the respect of an admiring world, most of whom would be planning a move to heaven; no, it’s Iowa.
