Nothing I wrote speaks to JPJ, rather the poor investment basketball is

for P5 schools. UNC still takes in more on basketball than any other school. (Kansas is not required to report or share its tier 3 income.)

Major athletic departments take in 65-70% of UNC's annual basketball haul on one home football game. Multiply that by 6-8 home games. That makes basketball a required investment just as are all women's sports, track, tennis, golf, and in most cases baseball. (A few baseball programs are self funding and/or produce a profit.)

Not a complaint, just a reality, which will eventually lead to alums funding "chairs" for coaches and taking college educrats out of athletics all together. I wish someone would produce a list of what idiot educrats have cost schools with their ignorant hiring practices.
