Beware Ridges studies designed to support a prior decision

To the Editor:

In reference to "Advisory Body Grills OU Officials on Plans for Ridges," the trial balloon lofted by Harry Wyatt - that it might not be cost effective to maintain or mothball Ridges buildings currently in disuse - is an attempt to bury decades of irresponsible property management on Ohio University's part.

$500K won’t be enough if Ohio really wants to win the ‘Dance’

To the Editor:

If Ohio University really wants to excel in basketball, go to the NCAA Tournament on a regular basis, and eventually win the national title, they've got to be realistic about the cost of coaching.
