    Iowa State to increase budget

    per CR Gazette:

    Iowa, UNI expected to cut athletics budget; Iowa State budget to increase | GazetteOnline.com

    looks like while UNI and Iowa are expected to cut budgets, over here at ISU we're looking at an increase

    Iowa State’s athletics budget will increase by 3.4 percent to $43.3 million. Iowa State expects to see a $1.5 million increase from the alumni foundation, corporations and sponsorships. Most of that money is transferred from ISU Foundation donor pledge commitments to assist in debt service payments for facility improvements.

    Re: Iowa State to increase budget

    For those of you who criticize and dislike Jamie Pollard, he has given us the opportunity to increase an athletic budget yet again. If you think he has nothing to do with this, then you are mistaken. He has done a fantastic job in getting us the resources to help us become more competitive. I hope he keeps this up and with success on the field/court/whatever, we should be able to compete.

    That's great news! I especially like that last line about "facility improvements." Great find CRCy!

    I am pleasantly surprised and thankful for this news.
    It would be interesting to see how other Big 12 schools are doing with budget increase/decrease.

    I think any University that can have their athletic budget increased is in great shape. The market should be turning around soon, so getting a head of everyone else should be an opportunity that we can't waste. Now let's win some games!

    Re: Iowa State to increase budget

    Too bad we are not in the SEC. What did get per school for the ESPN Package? I think it was like 17 Million.

    That is good news though...
    Now lets win some games and get that budget to $55 Million.
    And if Someone in Ankeny could find a way to donate $100 Million we would be pretty good to go. That would Finish Jack Trice and the Jacobson, Helpout Hilton and maybe start an olympic sports complex. Wouldn't that be nice.
    Ok I would be happy with 25 Million. Please....

    Just to clarify, Iowa is cutting 534K, which will bring the budget down to 65.6 million.

    And if we do win some games, it could only increase even more. It would be HUGE in every aspect to win 6 games this year. I will go and pray now.

    12.5 million, actually. ESPN will pay the SEC 150 million a year, (divided equally), the Big 10 100 million, and the Big 12 60 million.

    SEC and ESPN's television deal makes the rich even richer

    Outstanding. Thanks to the fans & alumni.

    Special thanks to JP for continuing the mission through all the crap we've had to endure.

    To contrast and compare again, every school in the Big 10 receives around 20 million a year through television contracts - the BTN and ESPN/ABC. This year Iowa is going to get 19.8 million, which is actually up 700K from last year.
