Northwestern doesn't profit from its football team. In fact, the program actually loses money for the university. That's what Steven Green, chief financial officer for the athletics department, said Thursday while on the stand at a National Labor Relations Board hearing in Chicago to determine whether or not Northwestern football players should be allowed to unionize. A day earlier, Southern Utah University sports economist David Berri had testified on behalf of the newly formed College Athletes Players Assn., which is pushing the unionization bid with support from United Steelworkers.

And he didn't let the lack of that heritage stand in the way.

Is gesture-dominated dance the obsession of young choreographers working in colleges across the Southwest--or just something their professors teach and reward? Is head-in-the-sand conservatism also a dance trend on these campuses, or merely a ticket to wider recognition?
