Good article. No doubt it has an impact. Virginia Tech was not a good academic university until after Michael Vick.

I honestly thought UNCW was on the same trajectory in 2003 with basketball performance and beach location. It takes sustained good performance though.

That is total crap,VaTech or VPI has been a very good school for many,many years and way before Mr. Vick showed up. Vick brought in some money no doubt but it was and is a great school.

RE: The financial impact of a successful basketball program to a University
This is the side though as to what frustrates many mid and low major schools because the financial impact of making and advancing in the tournament means something. So the more the balance gets stacked against them with the power conferences eating up all of slots, the more this money stays with the conferences and teams that really gain very little from the extra money, other than updating their facilities every few years. It is why the power conference teams schedule the way they do so that they can make sure to include themselves at the expense of the small schools.

On the opposite side of the coin, it is why many schools try to be DI. The potential gain from making the tournament or even winning a game or two is so astronomical that the risk of getting nothing is outweighed. Everyone is chasing the money train and the ones at the top continue to try and keep that train at their station. They can't stand to see Gonzaga or Wichita State continue to ruin their party.

Ok. Pre-Vick, VA Tech was a decent academic school with decent admission standards. It wasn't a bad school for dumb kids like ECU. Now it is highly competitive or very good. Read Frank Beamer's book. Ask a bunch of VA tech grads and they'll give you the honest truth.

What? Where did this come from? My father attended Va Tech and it has long been considered a good academic school.

I didn't read the article yet, but your statement couldn't be any more inaccurate.

Yeah. You're still wrong. My father is a Va Tech grad and would love to straighten you out if asked, I'm sure.

I'm not offended. I'm just telling you that's inaccurate.
