UNIVERSITY OF HOUSTON

University of Houston has transferred more than $100 million from its academic side to its sports programs in recent years, figures reviewed by The Texas Tribune show. School leaders remain committed to making the teams more competitive. They see basketball and football success as a way to increase the school’s visibility and strengthen student and alumni ties. To do so, administrators say, the school has to spend money. Meanwhile, the university has launched or is planning a series of expensive sports construction projects, and the school’s athletics department has struggled to stick to its annual budget. Houston’s subsidies in recent years have grown beyond the norm. From 2008 to 2014, the school transferred $106 million to athletics, according to financial reports reviewed by Tribune. Houston’s subsidy shows no sign of shrinking this year, even though administrators have told the department that they’d like it to become more self-sustaining. -Matthew Watkins, The Texas Tribune, Read More

NORTH DAKOTA STATE UNIVERSITY

With North Dakota State’s recent success they can make the move up from the second tier of college football, known as the FCS, to the top level of college football, known as the FBS. The problem is the resources that is needed in order to keep up. For NDSU to contend against a Texas or Oklahoma would require every bit of oil revenue out of the pocket. And that is exactly what NDSU is doing. It’s not jumping the FCS ship. It’s being patient, waiting to see if the landscape of college football will undergo a drastic change in the next few years. And the best advice for those who want NDSU to move up: Be content that NDSU is staying where they are at, while being ready for any change. – Kevin Schnepf, The Dickinson Press, Read More
