    This story is yet another indication that universities see themselves as
    corporations or sports franchises that market an academic product on
    the side.

    They see themselves that way because that’s what they are. Note that all the schools you mention are land grant schools with huge alumni bases.

    Universities are generally incompetent and grossly corrupt — just like the other institutions in America which are dominated by liberals (unions, government, media, plaintiff’s bar, main line protestant churches). Because they fool themselves into thinking that they are better than the rest of society, they feel ‘justified’ in their corruption and refuse to acknowledge the incompetence.
