I googled to see how this could be. The answeris that each locker has a tv and lights and such. 10K still seems excessive for that. And why they each need a tv is beyond me. Doesn't everyone have a phone?

It amazes (more accurately, sickens) me how the entire city of Austin seems to kowtow to UT football. College football. I can't imagine anything less meaningful in the grand scheme of things.

I've heard that in Texas they even have high school football on TV -- is that really true?

Are they publicly funded? If not, I suppose they can do with their money whatever they want. If so, then apparently they don't need it.

yes they get public funding, although to be fair, the football makes a lot.

Paul, I'm not sure about TV, but they have high school football on the radio.
