Your Stimulus Money at Work


Now this should get someone’s attention……

Some have said that the stimulus hasn’t saved any jobs, but here is a case where at least one job was saved.

According to an unnamed source, Oregon State University Athletic Director Bob DeCarolis was considering firing their basketball coach, Craig Robinson, after an 8-11 start (2-5 in the Pac 10 conference).

When word of this reached Washington, Undersecretary of Education Martha Kanter was dispatched to Corvallis with $17 million in stimulus money for the university. The source now says that Craig Robinson’s job is safe for this year.

For the record, Coach Robinson just happens to be Michelle Obama’s brother.

    In 2008-09, Robinson’s OSU basketball team (the Beavers) finished with an overall 18-18 record and won the 2009 College Basketball Invitational, the first ever postseason tournament championship for OSU.

    Craig Robinson has been their most successful men’s basketball coach in the last twenty years, having “headed a turnaround that includes the Beavers winning 31 games since his arrival … the most over a two-year period for Oregon State since 1991.
