The experience was great, and we won. But it was cold... very very cold.

And there was no BC game on the TVs at the Baseball Tavern :wink: :wink:

They had an offensive coordinator under Molnar, but he also served as the quarterbacks coach. From everything I have read hear, my understanding is that Whipple does not want an offensive coordinator. He definitely needs one.

Hell, even if it's a co-offensive coordinator, it would relieve Whipple of a lot on his plate.

By not having an offensive coordinator Whip was/is able to pay more for some of his assistants like the DC.

Does anyone know where we can find a breakdown of the financial status of each team within the athletic department? Is it as easy as looking into strictly the athletic department or would it be broken down and intermingled amongst a slew of different sites?

Just curious as to what the exact funded status of the program is. Are we breaking even with these pay day games or are we shifting costs onto other areas of the university?

Very few FBS teams break even. The program is supported by student fees. The accounting for measuring “break even” is based mainly on ticket revenue as well. The student fees are earmarked for athletics etc, so it isn’t about shifting costs to other parts of the university either.
