Sooooo-ieeeee!

Posted By on Tue, Jan 6, 2009 at 10:32 AM

The rich Fayetteville news blog Iconoclast tells us today that the UA has a No. 1 to boast of: It's tops in the nation in the ratio of athletic expenses to total instructional expenditures. Woo pig!

The information comes from the Center for College Affordability and Productivity.

Based on data reported by the U.S. Department of Education, the UA's total athletic expenses equal 56.5 percent of total instructional expenditures (as reported through the Integrated Post-Secondary Education Data Source—IPEDS). The University of Alabama was ranked second nationally at 50.2%.
