Sex, parking, football.

A great line from Margaret Wente's column on college football as the true religion of the US, quoting former University of California president Clark Kerr: the formula for a successful university is sex for the students, parking for the faculty and football for the alumni.

That (and the sex abuse) aside, leaves the sheer oddness of grafting a huge semi-pro sports league onto the system of higher education. Only in America.
