    Former students slam University of New Hampshire for spending $1 million bequeathed to the school by a former librarian on a new scoreboard
    * School spends $1 million bequeathed by former librarian on a scoreboard
    * Robert Morin left University of New Hampshire $4 million when he died
    * The school allocated 25 per cent of his donation on the new scoreboard
    * $2.5 million was spent on a career center and $100,000 on the library
    * Some former students have slammed the move for showing 'bad priorities'

    The University has released a statement ... poster on Facebook commented, "You've been heard, but we don't care."

    Who even cares about NHU football?

    The library probably could have used the money more.

    Bummer.

    Reminds me of those lines from A Bronx Tale:
    Sonny: Mickey Mantle? Is that what you're upset about? Mickey Mantle makes $100,000 a year. How much does your father make? You don't know? Well, see if your father can't pay the rent go ask Mickey Mantle and see what he tells you. Mickey Mantle don't care about you, so why should you care about him? Nobody cares.

    (At Sonny's funeral) "It was just like Sonny said it would be: Nobody Cares."

    35,000 people don't line up on a Saturday afternoon to pay to watch someone read a book. No one ever said the fighting Dewey Decimals are reading at the library get me 4 tickets by the card catalog.

    LOL, this guy lived frugally all his life and thought up this nice way to help his community and they go ahead and spend a million on a scoreboard.
    Lesson to be learned frugals, use the money on your self and let the last check you write bounce!

    Their field only holds 8000 people.

    But I hear ya, college is less about academics and more about making a buck. Sad but true.

    pretty funny but who the fuck needs libraries anymore anyway. even when i was in college which was going on 20yrs now i went in there pretty rarely due to the internet. now you can read any book online,etc..

    Who gives a rats ass about the library? Every student on campus has their own computer and/or smartphone which is like a portable library anyway.

    Funding some scholarships for deserving students for years to come would have been a far better use of the funds left to them than either the scoreboard, career center or library that they spent it on.

    What do they need a new scoreboard for? They don't score any points.

    UNH football is very successful. Many winning seasons/playoff appearances in a row.

    No reason to unless you're a wacko liberal who obviously has no issue giving money to a place that employs lots of wacko liberal professors.
