Bad news for returning spring sport seniors. No extra $$ for schollies even

Though permitted by NCAA. Probably means Rosie and perhaps Carl will not be returning unless coaches decide to take away scholarship $$ from other players.

Here is a C&P.

UVA won't add funds for spring senior scholarships; may halt football facility construction

"Virginia will not increase the scholarship budgets for spring sport programs that have senior athletes seeking to return for an additional year next season.

A school spokesman confirmed Tuesday that any seniors who opt to return for the extra year of eligibility granted by the NCAA will have to have their coaches work out scholarship funding from the team’s existing budget."

"Virginia will be able to finish the current phase of work on the new football facility, which includes the construction of grass practice fields, with lighting and utilities. That portion of the project is scheduled to be completed in August. Future work on the facility, along with the rest of the university's facilities master plan, is suspended, as fundraising has not been completed."
