Well if he was Vishnu, that wouldn't be a problem, would it?
Brad should just cut every sport Mason refused to give adequate funding and infrastructure too and run a leaner athletics department. 30 million would go a lot further with D1 minimum sports.
Long time posters on here know I've been saying this for years. Now seems like a good time to do it.
Which sports would you cut?
That is difficult to say without knowledge of how many scholarships each offers, relative to the max allowed by the NCAA, and what each sport's annual budget is. We need to remain Title IX compliant with whatever decision is made.
If I recall correctly, VCU student fees are $200 more. That makes up the $5m difference in revenue.
For 2019-2020 the fees are as follows:
Also, VCU has just 15 sports (1 more than the D-I minimum) while Mason has 20.
So theoretically VCU fees bring in $67.80 per student/per sport. Mason brings in $29.90. Interesting way to look at it.
Exactly. In cutting sports as VCU has done, you first need to satisfy the D-I minimum requirements of 14 sports (7 each for men and women, or 6 for the men and 8 for the women) and be title IX compliant as Five Two indicates. Secondly, you need to retain all sports required by the A10 (which I assume are just men's and women's basketball). Thirdly, you retain those sports that you have the resources to compete for championships.
IMO, Mason could easily cut at least 4 sports immediately under this criteria.
Which 4 that will impact a major savings?
IMO, the most obvious first 4 probably would not. But, if you cut 5 or 6 sports it would likely generate significant savings.
tennis and golf seem the likeliest candidates, that’s four right there.
Yea.... Tennis and Golf for men can be cut. Tennis and Rowing/Cross Country for the ladies can get the ax
cross country feeds into track and field so leave that. Rowing however can get the ax
GREATEST SECURITY QUESTION EVER!
Lmao, can you also share what street you grew up on, your mothers maiden name, your favorite subject growing up, and your childhood best friend?
This sounds like one of those Facebook “games.”
LMAO... well if you want my log-on information to access the State of California to file and pay my company's Employment taxes you're more than welcomed to.
Haha, I think I am good.
