YOW, BABY! UNIV. OF MD FINISHED $500,000 IN THE BLACK

          The Univ. of MD finished the '99 FY ended June 30 with
     an operating surplus of "about" $500,000, according to Steve
     Berkowitz of the WASHINGTON POST.  The surplus will be put
     "toward scholarships" during FY 2000.  The "greatest" boost
     came from the school's Terrapin Club, the athletic
     department's booster group, which raised a "record" $3.3M --
     more than $575,000 over its annual goal.  AD Debbie Yow
     added that playing a home football game against GA Tech at
     PSINet Stadium "enabled the department to clear" $450,000
     more than it would have if the game was played at Univ. of
     MD's Byrd Stadium.  The department received $560,000 from a
     renegotiated credit card agreement (WASHINGTON POST, 8/10).
          MOVING ON: Sandy Barbour, one of eight female ADs at
     NCAA Div. I-A schools, resigned as Tulane's AD on Monday,
     according to Trey Iles of the New Orleans TIMES-PICAYUNE. 
     Barbour stepped down after three-years as AD and eight years
     with Tulane.  While Barbour said the move was her decision,
     university sources said that Barbour's "management style and
     the athletic department's bleak financial forecast
     contributed to her departure" (TIMES-PICAYUNE, 8/10).
