UConn athletics face $40 million budget gap

http://www.espn.com/mens-college-basket … ome-sports

I've never paid much heed to the AAC doomsday predictions that some left-behinders like to throw around, but I will say that it puzzled me that UConn stayed with the football schools instead of migrating over to the new Big East. I think the lesson is that if you've managed to make an identity for your institution in the college sports landscape, it pays to embrace it.

We don't police for relevance here. If something related to college sports catches my eye, I just might post it.

UConn won March Madness in the first AAC basketball season, though. I'm pretty sure they can hang with Butler, Creighton, and Providence College. Georgetown and St. John's might be a half a notch higher on the totem poll, but still...

They spent $80 million in a year they brought in $40 million. Is there some vision behind it? I'm not seeing it, but I admire it. Sure beats running to the media because somebody bought an $80,000 pressure washer instead of a $20,000 pressure washer.

I wasn't trying to compare. I was trying to contrast.

Re: UConn athletics face $40 million budget gap

The new AAC media rights deal will not put that much of a significant dent in the deficit they are experiencing.....maybe take it down about 15%, thats about it. You lose your current lawsuit with Ollie and that puts you down another $10 million which is very possible.

UCONN should have never left the Big East. Their basketball team has suffered as a result which was their "brand" historically. What they are paying their football coach is ridiculous and part of the bigger problem in Storrs. Do you know some of the bonus money Edsall made this year while going 1-11 following a 3-9 season? He made $56K on top of his $1.1 million salary........Enjoy the laugh at the chart below....
