Not unless we join SEC or become national power

Good for Dawn but the contracts are not sustainable at the top unless revenue from streaming increase or a massive endowment for HC salary.

Even at $3million a year (which Dawn is slightly over), selling out every single game with paying customers (which doesn't happen in MBB even when you include team comps/etc) would require USC to charge $11 per ticket (assuming 15 home games and sold out 18,600 seats) just to break even on her salary alone.

Now you can make up some of that money with the SEC annual payment but just no way Virginia can (or should) afford it unless someone can turn around program like Dawn. And even then very questionable ROI (and I say that as a WBB fan).

Now good for Dawn earning this money. Will never fault anyone for being paid. But the Mulkey payment at LSU and Dawn hire at USC are not ones that will live well on balance books long term unless donors supply long term support directly for salary.
