Nothing too surprising here:

We're #1 among FCS teams, and if I understand their terminology correctly, the amount we spend on athletics, expressed as earmarked spending in the school's budget, is higher than anyone else in the country.

Nope, Delaware is higher..woohoo!

EDIT: UMass, CCU, Towson, and many others are higher as a % subsidy.

Yay we're not the #1 % subsidy anymore! Message board trolls be damned!

We're still the #1 highest $ amount of fees in the country.

So I thought we were supposed to be getting in line for that Cox legislation that passed. What was it? 60% for Fcs?
It doesn't appear we're making progress there.

Cox legislation does not include monies that go toward football stadium debt among other things and this number does.

Under the cox legislation we are roughly where we need to be.

This is the way I understand it as well.

One of the most surprising things that stood out to me was Rutgers with a really high subsidy %. They are the highest of any P5 and not far below JMU.
With Big 10 revenue, why are their students having to foot so much of the bill?

RE: Latest USA Today Football Program Budgets
Quote:For the fiscal year ending June 30, 2015, JMU generated over $35 million of its revenue from these student fees. The Cox Bill states that FCS programs such as JMU and William and Mary must rely on student fees for no more than 70% of its expenses. However, for purposes of these calculations, the legislation also provides for excluding certain expenses that I discussed above that JMU includes in its athletics budget – namely spirit groups, debt services (that were approved by the Commonwealth prior to June 30, 2015) and institutional service charges. After that consideration, JMU sits at 58 percent of its budget stemming from student fees, which is well below the Cox Bill requirement at the FCS level.

Was the shifting of the pep band job from Athletics to School of Music part of JMU's continuing attempt to bring us in line with the new law?
