    The AD has done a helluva a job there and it didn't just happen with the snap of their fingers. During the mid to late 80's Texas had a low donation base, limited facilities and a real train wreck football stadium.. Texas was willingly to invest in their program and 20 years later they are seeing the success of their hard and smart work.. Hopefully Bohn is following Dodds model for CU.

    Question about this revenue source listed for the University of Colorado:

    Money the university uses to subsidize the athletic department: $6,057,654

    It was my understanding that the AD supported itself and didn't receive university funding. What's this subsidy about? Anyone?

    I have the benefit of speaking from an inside perspective as my wife works at UT. Through the course of the season I was able to attend several UT games via the ulumni center including the CG. I also reside next door to an ulum that is a huge UT baseball supporter and donor.

    Without going into a great deal of detail but make an effort to put forth some simple truths that apply to UT & all higher ed institutions. There is a balance that has to be maintained between athletics and academics, it's a constant struggle doesn't matter which U it is. Both are accountable for revenues generated for their respective piece of the pie. Once out of kelter for a prolonged period of time a threshold is hit where a decision has to be made in order for the U to become healthy again.

    This was how is was best described to me by an alum at the CG, it was the deciding factor in why Brown was hired, why he is paid what he is and why Muschamp is being paid almost 1 mil a year to basically learn how to be the HC that UT wants when Brown leaves. The numbers justify the course taken, UT admins expect no drop off when this happens, they will have the right to have expectations because they paid WM to go through the process.

    Dodd wasn't given complete autonomy, but he was given a long leash which furthered the belief to those who had donor money that they would be funding a program that was bent on resurrecting itself via a committment to excellence. Once it became obvious to them that this was the mission, the money flowed.
