You mean we get more money from our athletic department that is completely separate from the school/state funding?


Yes I'm pretty sure that's what he meant. I dont think he meant to take a shot at LSU with that statement. Considering he stated right after that he also pulls for LSU.

Which conference would be an ideal landing spot for ULL if they did leave the Sun Belt?

This is the first time I've ever seen the words "Ragin' Cajuns" and "Complex" used in the same sentence without the three letters LSU.

Lafayette is the best location in this state to have a college football team. Our administration is finally getting it!

How much "direct institutional support", also known as taxpayer subsidy", does ULL athletics get now? And what percentage of the total athletic budget is it?

Out of your 367 posts, how many of them show your penis envy? And what percentage of your total posts is it?

Answer the question.

Hint: It's on a state government website.

$7.5 million. 43.16% of the budget. Which is good for a ranking of 159 our of 228 total schools (the lower the ranking, the lower the %). What's your point and what does it have to do with this?

I still dont get what his point is. Compared to a bunch of other schools, we really dont get that much in subsidies. And the % of it that makes up our athletic budget is really low as well compared to most institutions.

I'm impressed you looked it up. If individuals want to contribute to build some athletic complex, that's their prerogative. ULL (plus LATech and ULM) don't remotely pay their way as athletic programs, hence the direct institutional support being so large. If they were at their natural level based on the marketplace, they'd be Div. 1AA.

Think of it like welfare recipients, who buy their groceries with food stamps (direct institutional support) so their money is freed up to buy beer and cigarettes (athletic complex).

Terrible analogy. Us using money on an Athletic Complex=/=welfare recipients buying beer and cigarettes

The stuff we're spending money on is meant to improve our athletic department which should in turn equal more revenue. It also means growth. We need to be able to grow our program so we may one day become more self sufficient and use less subsidies.

A better analogy would be a welfare recipient who buys groceries with food stamps so their money is freed up to go to school, get a degree and get a job which would in turn mean they would eventually get off welfare.
