I used to work in the BSU Athletic's Finance department years ago. When I started, I was surprised to find that state funding for BSU Athletics was minimal (About 25% of their budget at that time. Much less now as a percentage I am sure). Unlike Academic programs, the Athletic department had to live off ticket sales and donations to survive. Most donations and sales came in via the football program, and those funds were used to support the women's programs and less popular men's programs. I have to give great credit to the people who built the program, they have done a lot in the face of economic adversity.
