    At the U of U we are talking $80 a semester which gets a student into all the campus fitness centers, swimming pools, basketball courts, and all the team athletic events for free and you can bring up to two friends or guests at a greatly reduced rate. It also allows a student to buy reserved football seats in the Muss at bargain prices but you don't have to in order to sit in the general admission seating of the student section. It is a great deal for the students and since you are obviously not a Utah fan or student you should stop complaining about Utah's admission to the PAC 12.

    Ricardo. Higher standards is a good thing. That's why kids should do well in K-12. BYU isn't a guaranteed rite of passage.

    I feel for the students who would like to get into BYU but cannot as the academic requirements are so high. I feel even more for the parents who will have to figure out how to finance the higher priced education.

    Quality education doesn't have to be expensive. School administrators have a similar characteristic as a politician. It's easy to spend money not coming out of your pocketbook.

    But, don't forget that the UofU will go up because according to an article in this newspaper they may be raising tuition to pay for their needs in the new PAC-12. I would suggest when a student enters the U they get to check an one of two options. (1) I do not want any penny of my money used for sports at the U and it may only be used for education. (2) You may use my tuition to improve sports facilities at Utah

    In fact that should be an option at every university.

    Now, I love sports and have played them and have season tickets, but I do not believe in raising student tuition to help the sports program. It must stand on its own feet.
