Just like my high school. They drop all the advanced math, english, science, and history classes just so their football team can have new uniforms. Its so stupid that schools are more obsessed with football and than actual education.
What's going on.

It's also weird considering UF's CS program is ranked highly by USN, at 39th...you'd think that'd give the department some respect.

Too bad their team barely even became bowl eligible last year (They only won half of their season games).

http://www.eng.ufl.edu/news/uf-statement-made-april-23rd-2012/
http://talk.collegeconfidential.com/university-florida/1328820-uf-eliminating-computer-science-department.html

Let's take a look at what is really happening:
Quote:
The school is eliminating all funding for teaching assistants in computer science, cutting the graduate and research programs entirely, and moving the tattered remnants into other departments.

That isn't sensationalism. This is the big time. A department ranked in the top 40 in the nation is losing all its graduate and research programs -- saying that the department isn't being eliminated is like saying that it's not killing a man to cut off his head.

Edit: so apparently that was incorrect, and what's really happening is this:
Quote:
Under that proposal, all undergraduate and graduate degree curriculum would remain the same and the college would maintain its brainpower and research capacity. The plan calls for no lay-offs of tenure-track faculty. Faculty lay-offs are expected, however, if across-the-board cuts are made in the College of Engineering.

Heh. Ok, definitely sensationalism.

People get mad when I.T jobs get outsourced to india.
Why though? we are doing it to ourselves, we get worse, indians get better.
Americans have dug their grave now lay in it and go worship your favorite tool head celebrity (which is all of them, got i hate the media and hollywood, no exceptions) and some dumb ass athlete (which again is all professional sports players, no exceptions)

While indians are good at it dont get me wrong but.
America has ushered and created most of the technology the world uses today which can be seen in cars, computers, tv, the internet, cameras, etc these are all american inventions.....but that was done by Americans from the 1900s-1960's, lately we completely suck ass now.
We dont deserve to be called Americans we've ruined the prestige and the great name.

And then you may as well cut physics, chemistry, biology, engineering, psychology, and pretty much everything else except drama, sports, and dramatic sports.
