.@TexasTribune aggregates TX Public #HigherEd sports spending.

TLDR: NCAA Athletics are a net (financial) drain on Students/Taxpayers/TX
My spreadsheet with 2014-15 & 2015-16 data

Major difference between UT & A&M revenue looks to be "contributions"
UT on the left, A&M on the right
Also noteworthy, UT spends almost twice as much on Admin/Support staff salaries
Why yes, they do have a budget line item just for Golden Parachutes!
This report seems to indicate UT DOES send money back to the academic portion of the public university whereas A&M does NOT
Also, look at that outstanding facilties debt!!!

Guess who is on the hook if athletics stops performing?

Not quite a #PonziScheme, almost
Money lost per student is highest, $1,375, at @utep. cc: @UTEP_Prospector

Median lost is $610, PER STUDENT
