if the current process is the President covers a built up shortfall every 3-4 years, then it makes sense to just deal with it with some fixed level of support - not necessarily student fees, although that would help.
in essence the University funds the deficit, as authorized by a PResident.
if it's decided to truly enforce a lower funding level, that's likely to be #1 with some lower level of schollie funding which will end up being reflected in being bottom of the Big West across sports.
but you can't increase revenue by lowered schollies, it won't work, you need to win to maximize revenue
MBB was getting 3500 average in CDM's peak, now that's probably 1500 attendance - if every butt in a seat is worth $15, that's 12 x 2000 x 15 = $360,000 a year less that the program is pulling in, as well as likely less boosters forking over $$$.
it's proven MVB, WVB, WBB can all average 1500 or more with top Big West teams that win titles every couple of years. MBB could average 4000 if they could consistently win a title every 2-3 years.
bottom of the Big West and they'll all be lucky to end up drawing 500 after 2-3 years
Anyone else catch that in the message? Says the school is looking at ways of increasing institutional support for athletics. Does that mean an increase in student fees (designated for athletics)?
