    Forbes: University of Florida eliminates computer science department, increases athletic budgets. Hmm.
    Submitted by J.W. Bizzaro; posted on Monday, April 23, 2012


    An article by Steven Salzberg:

    "Wow, no one saw this coming. The University of Florida announced this past week that it was dropping its computer science department, which will allow it to save about $1.7 million. The school is eliminating all funding for teaching assistants in computer science, cutting the graduate and research programs entirely, and moving the tattered remnants into other departments.


    "Meanwhile, the athletic budget for the current year is $99 million, an increase of more than $2 million from last year. The increase alone would more than offset the savings supposedly gained by cutting computer science."
