If we do not focus on academics, our universities will cease to be the best universities in the world. China is more than happy to watch us care more about bouncing balls instead of education.

We can change the direction of our institutions of higher learning if we change how regents are chosen. New Mexico regents are political hacks who raise money for politics. The governors treat appointments like presidents treat ambassadorships to Lichtenstein.

The only thing the regents want to do is pretend they are the owners of a professional athletic franchise. They cannot afford to buy their own team, so they use student fees and tax dollars to fulfill their fantasies.

UNM has not had regent with a PhD in decades. How can a board run a university if not one member understand what it takes to finish a PhD? How well would this news paper run if not one of the editors had a background in news papers?
