From a linked article: "The contribution - up 8 percent last year - covered two-thirds of budget for the Zips' sports program, making up for what couldn't be raised through ticket sales and other athletic sources. Based on fall enrollment, the athletic subsidy amounted to $1,183 per full-time student on campus, cleveland.com found in its annual review of college sports finances in Ohio."
These figures are from BEFORE the virus mess. So, many kids who are already going into debt to get a college education are having to pay over a grand a year to finance MAC athletics. Criminally stupid. Everyone involved should be fired and shamed.
And, by the way, cross country and golf are not the problem.
