Re: My only issue with WBB budget use

Ya I don't think MBB or FB you want to really tighten on as the revenuer producers.

I think additional money earlier may have helped softball/vollyeball etc but many of the same problems would have existed. Driving to the Triangle instead of flying maybe saves $80-100k a year (assuming 3 trips to Triangle a year). While not a small amount, it is also not enough to cure bigger issues even when compounded over years.

The bigger long term solution (other than jumping off the increasing arms race of growing staff sizes) is for increased commercial travel which can be equally detrimental to academic progress or for the NCAA to realize that 15 scholarships for WBB is excessive as you cannot have a team of that size that stays happy. Allow teams to shift two of those scholarships to other sports will help continued parity in WBB as well as improve other sports.
