What do we know about Bill Carr and the Study?
What do we know about Bill Carr's Study.How far does it go back and does it use this year's number?
In 2012 there was an article written about Carr and below is the last line of the story.

Like many schools, UAB entrusted its future in part to an outsider. No matter how McGee and Haase turn out, Carr has cashed his paychecks.

The "study" when applied the same way to all but 30 or so programs would probably come up with the same result.

RE: What do we know about Bill Carr and the Study?
It's my personal opinion that the study will show investment needed to sustain all sports, including football. I don't think it will make a specific recommendation to do anything. The BOT will attempt to then kill athletics in the name of fiscal responsibility. The good news is that they will have to fight the public opinion and capital commitments from the Foundation and City of Birmingham.

Also, could Carr have recommended a 3-year contract in order to get more bang for the buck (ie larger/longer buyout period for Clark if he has success)? I think it's helpful to play the other side every once in a while--as long as we assume nothing.

UAB/Mackin might have been leery of anything longer than 3 years, after the McGee disaster.

That...or it was to line up with the end of scheduled non-conference games and the end of Mackin's contract.

Don't kid yourself. Bill Clark was given the last three years remaining on Garrick McGee's contract. Mackin probably knew the whole freaking time what was going on and didn't have the balls to tell anyone. The more I think about this, the more pissed I become with all the lies that Watts and company gave Clark and his coaching staff.
