About 470 San Diego State University professors vented their frustrations against university President Thomas Day and his budget-cutting plan Monday in one of the largest gatherings of faculty in the university's history. With all but a handful of votes in opposition, the professors reaffirmed their academic Senate's vote of no-confidence against Day two weeks ago and adopted a resolution to urge the Senate to disavow support of a "deep and narrow" budget-cutting strategy.

Please take this letter from fantasyland--a.k.a. the sports pages--and deliver it to Dr. Thomas Day, president of San Diego State University. Dear Tom: Do it. Go ahead and hire Jerry Tarkanian as basketball coach. I have heretofore approached this matter carefully, cautiously and conservatively, just as you are, but I think it is time to acknowledge that this is the right direction for the university and the program. Remember what you said Friday?

Former San Diego State Athletic Director Mary Alice Hill hinted she may take legal action after university president Thomas Day ordered her Tuesday to use her accrued vacation time through Nov. 8, which has been set as her termination date. Tuesday, Hill was to have been briefed by Day on her new duties as assistant to the president. Day had reassigned her to that position Aug. 8, the day he fired Hill as athletic director.

Was the moon full Tuesday? I don't know if I have ever encountered a crazier day in one city's world of fun and games as Tuesday in San Diego. And none of it really had anything to do with the games themselves. This was board-room bizarre. This was hiring and firing and firing and rehiring and reinforcing.

There is an uneasy calm these days at San Diego State University, the largest, possibly the most prestigious and certainly in the past year the angriest campus in the Cal State system. The faculty, recovering from a bare-knuckles fight with President Thomas Day over layoffs that were proposed but then rescinded, is willing, somewhat grudgingly, to give credit to the embattled president for finally bringing them into the policy-making fold.

The faculty and president of California State University's most prestigious campus are struggling with two troubling questions that threaten the school's very identity: How can they slice $10 million from San Diego State's budget and still preserve the institution's status in the Cal State system as a campus rich in graduate and research programs?
