    Well definitely do not quote me on the 14% figure, I just made that up based on there being seven home games, but whatever the exact percentage is, the point is that having six home games instead of seven costs the Athletic Association a LOT of money that they need to fund all their programs. According to Foley, that is.

    I know that is what we hear and it does make since. Then when I think about the increase that I now pay for tickets and booster fees along with the other fans and new TV contracts in the last year or two. I am thinking they have not taken in less like I have, but even more than ever before.

    Not sure about that one. I thought we were one of a handful of hoops programs that made money. I thought I read that we profited about $2M after expenses in 2012.

    I understand that the program might lack in upgrades at that rate, but the program itself pats for itself and then some.

    Could be, but I remember being surprised to read how relatively little they made, with the reason being that the TV rights paid less than I expected and the cost of running the program was higher.
