NCAA Study: Most FBS Programs Lose Money As Rising Expenses Outpace Revenue
Published August 21, 2014
THE RAINBOW CONNECTION: ESPN's Brett McMurphy said the Univ. of Hawaii dropping its football program, something AD Ben Jay alluded to earlier in the week, is a "possibility, but I don’t know how real it is." The school is "trying to get more money out of the state to fund the program, but the bottom line is ... the non-power conference schools are in a tough time now." McMurphy: "You get the Power Five schools with the autonomy, they're going to have cost of attendance, unlimited meals. They're going to have other legal perks, and the non-Power Five schools are going to have to offer these things." If they don't, they "can't compete with these other schools." McMurphy said Jay is "worried about program reduction -- not necessarily the football program, but the other programs." ESPN's Chris Low said the "people who are going to suffer are the smaller sports." ESPN's Chris Cotter: "It's bad for college sports" ("College Football Live," ESPN, 8/20).
