That gap is about to get much, much bigger in the next 2 years.

Anyone have any idea what this is about? Sir Big Spur is the 1st thing that comes to mind, but as far as I know those folks don't get money from the university (unless that's changed).
I know for a fact that horses are damned expensive. The equestrian team is probably associated with that one.

I would be interested in Clemson's expense line there. It must be huge!

This is with our Basketball team being as bad as they have been too. If we can get them in the Top 25, we could climb that easily.

That sounds about right. I believe Tanner is pushing in that direction because they are money makers. It will require taking out some of the current seats. I don't know how many UF has, but it is an ungodly number. They are glassed in & every single time I've attempted to count them I've been distracted by something. Once you take your eyes off them it is difficult to pick up where you left off & I wasn't interested enough to keep trying.

If not I'm not mistaken I was under the impression that the horses were the property of the student and they were responsible for paying for their boarding. However at Cow U it might be different.

It's got to be the horses. Nothing else makes any sense. About the only thing I do know is that when the teams travel, they ride the host team's horses. They are not routinely trailering horses to events.

I didn't even think about the horses. Honestly, if it's the horses...that $70,000 seems very low for boarding and feed.

70 grand may seem low or the horses, but our Equestrian team seems to be doing pretty well.

Takes a lot to make sure Sir Big Spur is in good health. Would guess that LSU/UGA's budgets are higher as caring for a tiger can't be cheap and neither can breaking in a new bulldog every month.

UGA doesn't own those dogs. They are owned by the same family that has breed & supplied them for use as mascots for decades. They are cared for & live with the family. I think they do use the UGA Vet School for their medical needs.

No idea about Big Mike.

Sir Big Spur isn't owned or cared for by the University of South Carolina & he dang sure doesn't eat $5800.00 worth of feed a month.

Mike the Tiger is cared for in a few different ways.

His habitat comes from private donations from the TAF (Tiger Athletic Foundation.) LSU very well may claim these donations in their contributions.

His food is paid for by the athletic department. It's around 20K a year. That number also includes medicine, etc.

His primary vet is part of the faculty at LSU but his income is supplemented. It seems like that was 8K a year.

Clemson's revenue will never come close to ours. Once the SEC network gets up and running well in several years and we re-work our TV deals, I expect that gap to widen considerably and continue to widen.

Also, don't be worried about the net income figure....it's just that we are making significant upgrades to all our athletic facilities, that's what you want to do with all the revenue we are producing. It'a making a big difference with our recruiting.
