RE: What They Are Saying About Andy Kennedy
I hadn’t thought about it before, but I hope AKs connections from his TV gig payoff in terms of exposure, and maybe even scheduling

I think the hire along w/ some $$$ much like what happened w/ the fb shutdown/return, is showing commitment to bb, so hopefully it does turn out to mean a better OOC schedule w/ better quality teams being more amenable to h&h games w/ us. Hopefully AK is the bb version of Clark for us.

RE: What They Are Saying About Andy Kennedy
I posted an article in another thread that mentioned that G5 schools would lose close to $1 million as a result of the spring sport shutdown, no NCAA tournament, etc.

Add to it the added expense of close to $1 million a year for 6 years for a coaching change. (which may be covered by our boosters, I'm not sure)

These reasons in itself are why we need people showing up for games and buying tickets. 4000+ for the crappy ones, 6000+ for the good ones.

I talked to the ticket office yesterday and they said these past 3 days have been the busiest for basketball ticket sales than at any time in the last 4 years.

But there was also an earlier article on al.com quoting Mark Ingram stating the spring sports shutdown is actually saving the athletic dept. over $400,000. (Loss of $40,000 in revenue vs. $450,000 savings on the travel budget).

Well, it is a known fact that everything outside of football and men's basketball loses money so yep that would seem correct.
