    Crazy that we're paying more for scholarships despite having the minimum number of varsity sports. Our AD gets raped by the university.

    We're substantially less than Ohio St. vis-a-vis the scholarship payout. But to delve deeper into that point you brought up, I wonder what the breakdown of in state/out of state students is for all those schools mentioned. Probably makes the perspective a little clearer.

    UConn and Rutgers are losing money with their athletics. Ouch. Oregon is barely making a profit; sounds fishy.

    Alabama spent more on coaches salaries than WSU spent on their entire dept.

    I am not sure those numbers are correct.

    Colorado has an athletic department budget of much more than $12 million.


    EDIT -- My mistake -- I think these numbers are only for FOOTBALL

    Are you sure this is all sports or just football? Numbers look like just football, to me.

    Yes - I believe those numbers are only for football expenses and football revenue.

    Colorado, for example, has a total athletic department budget of more than $35 million.

    Just football. CU numbers show a profit, which when you add in the non-revenue sports, wipes that out.
