Athletic Budget Goals-Very interesting find.

Recommended Posts

Found this while researching something completely different.





Seems like UA is upping the ante to 7.8 million PER YEAR....that is a major major goal. The report states what we have heard from the ADept. This however is a school wide survey. Two new fields (IE. TURF), a new bubble (which willl house offices and other recreation, and a football stadium upgrade. ALL SEPERATE FROM THE BUDGET.


If we spend 7.8 mill...bet your ass we will be playing DIAA scholly football. That 8 million goal we heard is probably a matching goal.

All the boo birds will be ready when I say it, but in the interest of fairness, this is a report from 1999-2000 ... the bubble has come down and gone back up in that time. The $8 million in the "Bold. Vision." campaign is designed to endow scholarships and programs or coaching positions, and then the interest generated from those endowments would fuel the athletics budget ... the same $8 million they are talking about here.


New facilities will eventually be put into place at the school, but this report isn't a sign of immediate things to come.


It just happens that you found an old report saying the same things we're saying now four and a half years after it was published.


It also doesn't say it's outside the budget - it clearly says the opposite, that they want to increase spending from $3.7 million in 1999-2000 to $7.8 million overall. They are talking about the overall athletics budget and the hope that they can increase it to that level.


I just want to keep things in perspective, without pointing those things out people might read your post and get all geeked up over nothing.
