UNCW had a great basketball coach but due to internal politics ,they ran off Brad Brownell! Brownell had his teams performing at a high level for a mid-major program.I have not attended a game at UNCW since his departure. I suspect attendance has dropped off significantly over the years.This is UNCW's biggest revenue producer within their athletic department. The bottom line is college athletics are big business and the win and losses do matter because people like to be associated with winning . If you are not putting behinds in the seats , you are losing potential revenue by not being able to subsidize what is already a very high maintenance endeavor. I have always enjoyed college athletics in my hometown but my allegiances are not to UNCW. I bleed Purple and Gold!
