RE: Latest USA Today Football Program Budgets
So the school is in line with the legislations limits? Darn it. What can we find to pick on now? Wait, I hate the color purple. I think Mr. Alger chose the current shade of it to make all of our teams look feminine. I mean when most of your sports are female anyway, he must have been thinking that. Fire the guy!

RE: Latest USA Today Football Program Budgets
The focus of this article on social media has been more positive about JMU's relative revenues- 59th overall, highest in FCS and one of the highest outside P5- really more in line with AAC levels than other P5/mid major conferences.

Yeah but no one is pointing out the elephant in the room. The high "revenue" is really involuntary student fees, which we lead all D1 athletic programs by the metric. Not something to really be proud of, even if our overall cost of attendance for a student is among the lowest.

Good points. Some, perhaps a lot, of the P5 schools require students to pay for tickets to athletic events - especially the money sports of football and MBB. I don't know if that revenue is counted or not. Too lazy to look it up. I assume it is. I believe students get into all athletic events at JMU for free - as they should of course!! The exception of course being the NCAA home playoff FB games and even then it isn't terrible...which also gives me another chance to give a shout out to the students for their showing up big for the SHSU game last year in the freezing cold.

This article lists the top 25 most expensive season tickets for FB (edit note: should have said "STUDENT season tickets for FB")... http://www.scout.com/college/football/st...ket-prices

This must be taken with a grain of salt though because there are some schools like Oregon (most expensive) where it states the $367 price tag is to sit in a preferred section for students while there are other pricing options for students and mentions a lottery system to get tickets via added fees as part of overall tuition costs. So, not sure if apples to apples comparisons or if voluntary vs involuntary. Also, some bundle student ticket costs with MBB.

Also, he only blamed Alger. He must blame Bourne with Alger. You can't just blame one without the other. Major JMU Fanhood and Dukes Domain board violation apparently.

Come on, Nation. Step up your JMU Fanhood game!! Now, start being more miserable and a cry baby. Let's see some real tears please. I blame Alger and Bourne for your ineptness when it comes to being a sad sack. (see how I worked them both in?...leading by example)

Yep - our spending/revenue numbers "cluster" with the AAC schools. We massively outspend most of the CAA and also schools like NDSU/SDSU. Only UD is in the same ballpark spending wise, and even there it's not that close.

In terms of Virginia schools, it's UVA, VT, JMU, ODU. Everyone else has a much smaller athletic budget.

To me, these budget numbers are an indicator of who our "athletic peers" should be. We are a 10 ton gorilla in FCS beating up all the midgets.

I know VT charges ~$85 for student season tix to FB and ~$60 for MBB. We could argue that it is immaterial in the big picture but it could shift ~$.5-1M from expense to revenue.

I think JMU stepped up and paid for all the students tickets which again cuts revenue and increases expenses.

^^ How dare you point out the obvious, many on here are happy to beat up on midgets and feel good about what a POWERHOUSE JMU is.
