Im sure it has to do with the way things are done on the accounting end, especially with so many schools "breaking" even.

Still thats a scary number.

I have come here to chew bubble gum and kick @$$ and I'm out of bubble gum.

And how is our "income" so much lower than EVERYONE elses? I know our attendance is at the low end but, less than half the next program and 1/7 Denvers???

Like Owlfamily said, every school's accounting is different. For example, FIU's attendance is lower then ours and their ticket prices were lower, and yet they had an income of $1.2 million? I'm sure it has to do with how much of the student fees are distributed throughout the athletic department.

Regardless of the way they calculate "income", that number seems embarrassing.

If you want to know total income and expenses for your school. Check out this USA TODAY database which you will see FIU can spend more $ bc of their larger school enrollment yet is lower per student then FAUs.
