When you do the math on that, it would cover itself and more with just enrollment, tuition and then room and board."


There's a lot of inaccurate information from this quote. The costs of the staff would not be able to be covered by the revenue, not unless you're paying the coaches on whatever is expected to be made from games. The other factor is the location of where they play. They aren't building a new stadium for Chicago State, so they need to rent a facility to get that done. Then, the concussion insurance, equipment and travel are not one-time payments. They are yearly and repeated costs.

There's is a whole lot of fail with Chicago State. This is just another glaring example of why the university cannot continue to function the way it is. No reason to have taxpayer money continue to fund this institution - least of all for college football.

Non scholarship football isn't that expensive. Lots of non-scholarship programs have costs <$500,000. At Valpo, operating expenses for football are about $3500 per athlete or around $340,000. Butler spends about $2600 per athlete or around $295,000 per year. So, 100 students would bring in $800,000 to $1.2 million in tuition and fees. at Chicago State I am sure they would get some sponsorships, etc. too. Frankly, there is virtually no added cost to the university for having an extra 100 kids attend class. So, the extra tuition and fees is pure gravy for the schools.

There are a number of D-3 schools that have added football over the years to increase enrollment. It has been a huge success. George Fox University claims their new D-3 football team adds about $2.5 million in revenue for the school, which way surpasses the cost of the program. Enrollment went up over 10% at the College of Idaho after adding football.

The school will possibly shut down this year David. Their athletics are toast, just a matter of what day it's announced.

They can't shut down. They are actually an unofficial HBCU school which the majority of students are African American. There will be hell raise by African American leaders if the school was forced to shut down. It would be like trying to shut down or merged the HBCU schools down in the southern states.

There's been 3 HBCU's that closed their doors in the last 15 years. So they're not sacrosanct.

None of those were public though. But then again, Chicago State isn't an actual HBCU.

Chicago State may well indeed shut down, but it won't be this year. They'll get enough help to sustain them for a while. The Football Team, Cheer squad and Band may help.

Please explain what an unofficial HBCU is.

Nope, which means they don't have that card to play.
