That says it all:
Page 17 Appendix A
9 Mens sports teams
182 male team members with a budget of $3,730,142
218 female members with a budget of $3,271,393
By my figuring that is
400 students costing $7,001,535
or approximately $17,503 - per student athlete
The PROPOSED cuts leave:
6 Mens teams with 120 athletes costing $3,458,539
8 womens teams with 163 athletes costing $2,652,154
283 students costing $6,110,693
or, approximately $21,592 - per student athlete
If this committee were employed in the private sector?
They would be FIRED
They cut $890,842 or 12%
But increased per student costs.
Sports is big business - and bad business for UNCW.
Everyone - Administrators, Directors, Coaches, Boosters and Alumni should be embarrassed, no ASHAMED, that the deification of the student athlete has resulted in such fiscal outrageous-ness.
If I were a freshman non-athlete at UNCW I would find an attorney and ask for my student fees back.
