Why it's better to be a coach in Division 1 of the NCAA than Division 2:

The University of Arkansas at Fayetteville paid $17,836,158 in salaries for its athletic department in the 2010-11 academic year. Southern Arkansas University at Magnolia paid $562,369. Size matters. SAU, which had total athletic expenditures of $2,876,353, the least of Arkansas's public four-year universities, also had the fewest students, 3,529. UAF, with total athletic expenditures of $74,905,756, also had the most students, 21,827. As it frequently reminds us, the UAF athletic department is the only one that is self-supporting. It had total revenues — ticket sales, television, gifts, etc. — of $76,166,772, and it collects no athletic fees from students nor transfers general education funds to the athletic department, as all the other institutions do.

Below is a partial summary of revenues and expenditures from the five public Division 1 universities in Arkansas. Data on athletic expenditures is reported annually by the state Department of Higher Education.

  • Bad health care bill, again

    Wait! Postpone tax reform and everything else for a while longer because the Senate is going to try to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act one more time before September ends and while it can do it with the votes of only 50 senators.
  • Sex on campus

    Look, the Great Campus Rape Crisis was mainly hype all along. What Vice President Joe Biden described as an epidemic of sexual violence sweeping American college campuses in 2011 was vastly overstated.
  • The inadequate legacy of Brown

    LRSD continues to abdicate its responsibility to educate poor black students.
