TUBBY SMITH

Don’t blame men’s sports for U’s woes

Star Tribune letter writers got it wrong about the money the University of Minnesota will pay Tubby Smith after firing him (Letters of the Day, March 28).

The reason some students can’t go to school “for free” is because of women’s athletics and not because of men’s athletics.
