The questions I have to ask, do these schools need Academic subsidies. Instead of saying that they transferred profits back, couldn't you also say the schools themselves needed to borrow money from Athletics?
Interesting information, not sure what to really make of it without a full breakdown of academic/athletic budgets for those in question. Also if schools aren't giving back with athletics is it because they're flush on the academic side and don't need the assistance? So many obvious flaws in this metric and the way it was presented.
