Report Suggests Rutgers Should Temper Fiscal Expectations For Move To Big Ten
Published October 14, 2013
COUNTRY ROADS, TAKE ME HOME: In West Virginia, Dave Hickman reported the West Virginia Univ. athletic department is "back in the black" after reporting a $4.2M profit for the fiscal year that ended June 30. The surplus comes a year after the department lost almost $13M, "perhaps the largest deficit in its history." WVU's revenue-sharing check from the Big 12, which was worth $10M instead of $8-9M, was one reason for the change, as it was "larger than expected" (WVGAZETTE.com, 10/11).
