To Decide How To Best Allocate Tickets
MOVING FORWARD: With the Apple Cup not moving to Qwest Field, Sterk said that there "will be even more pressure on the athletic department, which receives 8[%] of its $30[M] budget -- the Pac-10's smallest -- from the university in the form of tuition waivers and benefit support for employees." Sterk: "There are financial challenges. Over the next month and a half we're going to be ... looking at our budget and how we can reduce expenses and increase revenues" (Spokane SPOKESMAN-REVIEW, 4/25). Sterk also said that he "hopes to have WSU continue playing one 'home' game a year at Qwest." WSU has played only nonconference opponents at Qwest Field since '02, but Sterk said that it is "possible that the [team] could bring in a Pac-10 opponent in the future" (Tacoma NEWS TRIBUNE, 4/26).
