Hey, spelling in English is hard! And auto correct pretends to be your friend but it's really not!
I know -- I was smiling as I typed that. I've seen Marshall Law other places online, too. He sure does make the rounds. Wonder who he paid to get that autocorrect gig...
I hate you.
This is Marshall Law:
I'll be sure to stay 6 feet away from him, because he could kick my ass.
It's really hard to believe that they are feeling the pain so quickly. As I remember the NCAA tourny is a huge money maker for the conferences but it's spread out over time, possibly for something like this happening. I believe the payouts are based on the past 5 or 6 years earnings from the BBall tourny (based on # of Big XII teams in games).
But you already know how much you're going to get from the NCAA in Year X based on the number of "units" earned in those previous years. So when the tournament was cancelled, everyone knew just about immediately how much money they were going to lose (or not receive).
It's the same thing with the Big 12 MBB tournament. Bowlsby already indicated what the financial impact will be, which means ADs already know what their shortfall will be from that budgeted revenue stream.
If I know I'm going to be short from a budgeted prediction 3 months from now, I'm not going to wait 3 months to put a plan into action.
The NCAA goldmine done had a cave in.
Trying to imagine a fictional ISU schedule...

Mid April: B12CCG
Early May: bowls/post season
The Big Ten and MAC would have some miserable frozen games no matter what they do. Every other FBS conference has at least half the teams in warm climates to get some flexibility.
Fire Prohm and bet there won’t be an NCAA basketball season next year so don’t hire a replacement until March. Theres a way to save another few million.
I'm curious when we'll find out who took the cuts and if was JP on that list.
Wait until the monthly payments have gone through and compare previous month with current month pay.
Or gives those who donated 5x the club points !!!
I’d be shocked if he didn’t.
Oh man, I can only imagine the endless threads around here begging for artificial turf if we end up with a football season in the winter or spring months.
Seems to me that a few million savings in a $90 million operating budget is not a lot other than for sending the right message in these nasty times. It will be interesting to see if others follow JP's lead.
A huge overlap of College football onto basketball sure would be weird.
JP went there...
Would be interesting to see the department's financial statements. Anyone know where to find them or do they get melded into the overall university?
Make a FOIA request.
Many public universities publish AD financials. Missouri blends theirs with the university. Kansas universities publish theirs. I guess there's no overriding regulation about how it's to be done. But seeing the numbers would give a good clue as to who is in the woodshed presently.
