  1. A big part of the problem in the athletics budget is due to accounting methods. In athletics every single cost can be nailed down and charged to that department. That goes all the way down to the people who clean the bathrooms at the JAR and those who mow the grass at Lee Jackson field. Compare that to the English department. If a new building is constructed to house the department do you think the cost of that building is considered a cost of the English program? How about the janitors or grounds keepers? Pretty sure Athletics doesn't get a credit for all the tuition paid from walkons or players from non-scholarship sports.
  2. Twitter lynch mob is going after another innocent person.
  3. He was already on the way out. Sold his house and moving to Michigan. His wife go a new position there.
  4. I certainly hope you didn't graduate with a degree in business or economics.
  5. After reading the allegations, the booster would seem to make a fine presidential candidate for either party.
  6. He's been around the program since Jimmond was a freshman. Nice kid.
  7. I was picturing Godzilla vs Mothra.
  8. Don't worry. Once Julie Acus gets a hold of his diet for a few months he won't look like that for long. She is a big reason why the Zips are such a well conditioned team.
  9. He is an assistant coach at CSU.
  10. My gut tells me those big paydays might be a thing of the past. Even the P5 schools will feel the effects of budget cuts.
  11. I think Dr Miller is following the advice of Winston Churchill, "never let a good crisis go to waste". Akron has been kicking the can down the road for years when it comes to deficits in the athletic department budget. Now under the cover of the Covid crisis it is the time to make a major course correction. Hopefully the rest of the MAC sees it the same way. GP1 makes a good point about the G6 schools breaking off and doing their own thing. They may not have a choice if the G5 thinks old Winston had a good idea.
  12. I thought we dropped that program?
