As you can see from the article, the big boys arenít taking any cuts, or any real cuts. Only those building houses of cards, those trying to pretend to keeping up with the Blue Bloods of the sport

The blue bloods are going to feel some pain if they lose home OOC games and have their stadiums at 1/5 capacity for the remainder. Ticket revenue is huge for them (around 60M a year at OSU and UM). And OSU's AD runs on razor thin margins because they support 30-something D1 sports all with full scholarship allowances. Other big boys like UM and Texas don't do that and have much cushier profit margins to cover a shortage. OSU could find itself in some real trouble. We'll see if the academic side will cover a 20 or 30 million dollar loss or whether they start trimming their AD down to something like UM or Texas has.

Football, Basketball and probably a dozen Olympic sports there that compete for national titles will be OK, but I absolutely could see them getting rid of 8-10 sports.

The coaches that run programs that print cash -- Coach K, Calipari, Saban, etc. -- justify their pay. As pointed out, the rest are a house of cards.

There's really no way to justify Solich and Boals making more money than the President, who is their boss. It's also truly ridiculous that they're state employees that make 3x what the Governor is paid. Solich runs a program that loses money and is, at best, the third best program in the state. But historically is much worse.

Boals oversees a program that isn't even in the top tier of state school programs.

If you can fund a big chunk of those salaries with private donations, great. But otherwise, I don't see how it's at all justified.

Shame, I agree. Itís one thing if youíre making money. We donít. Our head coaches should be paid in the dean range.

Our highest paid dean makes $305,000.

That doesn't include clinical income as the head of the practice plan. Not sure how much that would add to the total, but it's not an insignificant amount.
