Hey we are number 1! In all seriousness, sobering article of AD budgets


The whole article is a very good look at the budgets of athletic departments. Key component I found was that only Georgia and Texas A&M are still in the black when football ticket revenue is taken out. As I said, sobering.

Just really rubs me the wrong way that we have the highest student fees as a % of support for the athletic department. This was not the case a generation (or 2) ago. Still cannot believe how that has changed in the last 25 years. I find it pretty poor financial management. We are essentially taxing students to prop up the athletic department. This clearly is a decision not just by the current administration but stretching back probably to Terry Holland's tenure and it has festered and grown worse over time.
