    I guess conservatives believe that basketball is more important than education.

    A lot of colleges run by liberals spend tons of money on all athletics. That much is certain.

    ​UW Slush Fund more than Quadruples in Last Decade

    [Madison, Wisc...] The University of Wisconsin System may face harsh questioning from legislators following the release of a report by the Legislative Audit Bureau (LAB), which shows the university system's reserves grew at a very fast pace over the past decade.

    (...)

    While it is expected that UW officials will fight back against a $150 million cut in each year of the budget, a review of LAB's report and Legislative Fiscal Bureau (LFB) documents shows the UW System still maintains rather large Program Revenue (PR) balances.

    During the budget debate two years ago, members of the CPA Caucus discovered the UW System had a balance of more than $1 billion. That so-called "slush fund" was made up of PR balances.

    The bloated bureaucracy of the UW system can afford cuts.

    As for the arena, it would cost more to lose the Bucks than the taxpayers' portion to build it.

    The article does not actually say where the money for the stadium comes from.
