Well in that case, almost 100% of ADs disagree with you.

Again, how is it possible to obtain evidence of intangible benefits?

Of course ADs disagree, as their jobs/careers depend on an irrational attachment by universities to athletics.

And you must believe in the tooth fairy, right? After all, we can't obtain evidence that it doesn't exist, and if we can't do that then we must assume it exists, just as you assume that intangible benefits of athletics outweighs tangible costs.

FWIW, intangible factors can sometimes be measured indirectly.

E.g., we could survey alumni and ask them whether they anticipate reducing donations to the university if athletics were scaled back to a no-subsidy basis, etc.
