    Nebraska womens team will still end in the red

    LINCOLN, Neb. -- Even with a 21-0 record, the third-ranked Nebraska women's basketball program will fall at least a million dollars short of making money.
    Associate athletic director Marc Boehm said Monday that the Cornhuskers are on track to generate about $1 million this season. That's almost twice as much as the $533,000 in projected revenue but only half of the $2.2 million in projected expenses.
    Still, Boehm says the extra revenue is "gigantic" for the athletic department. The Huskers have drawn three straight crowds of more than 10,000.
    Boehm says even though the men's basketball program is in last place in the Big 12, it's on track to make a $200,000 to $300,000 profit.

    Uh, ISU loses around $900,000 a year on women's basketball too.
    What's so shocking about this?

    pretty much all women's basketball programs lose money every year. there are some exceptions like tenessee but for the most part they all finish in the red.

    I don't understand how in an econimoic climate like this, such a crappy product can still exist. it has to cost more to keep the lights on in those venus for a few hours then they bring in in ticket sales. Carver hawkeye thinks those arenas look barren!

    I would guess far far less then 900k. can't cost that much to have 1 or 2 concession people and some outfield lights turned on.

    What about uniforms/equipment? Travel? etc?


    Don't confuse hope for a plan.

    However, in the north US sports like Softball, Baseball, and Golf head south 2nd semester for extended periods of time. That can't be cheap.

    I always thought scholarships were the biggest drain for these sports.

    Or paying the coaches. I would think that was the biggest expense.

    yep, travel costs is the single biggest expense for college baseball. The college baseball season starts Feb 19 (at least that's Nebraska's first game).
