Pay for play. Just not to the players.

One question that had crossed my mind was if ASU would still tag over $10M in sports fees onto the ASU student tuitions, even though there will be no sports. While noodling around I found the attached budget breakdown.

* Total 2018 ASU sports expenses = $126.8 Million. Sports expenses jumped from $67M in 2013 to $126.8 in 2018 without a significant improvement in the major sports. In fact, 2013 was the last time we played in the conference championship game. And before anybody brings up the SDS improvements, those are off-balance sheet investments.

* In 2018, 645 student athletes received $15.7M in aid and support.

* But $53 Million was spent on coaches and athletic admin compensation. By my last count, there were 77 Director titles in the Athletic Department. Maybe Jayden Daniels should change his position to Director of Football Field Management and get paid like one of AndersonŐs buddies.

It seems like itŐs better to have a desk than a locker.
