The SEC Spring Meetings wrapped up last week, with a lot of talk being about some of the non-revenue producing sports possibly being cut. Then you hear about Tennessee going forward with a $99 million renovation project for the baseball stadium.  Now Auburn is directing $25.7 million to the north end scoreboard. 

Well, there goes the tennis team.

My doctor told me I needed to stop masturbating.  I asked him why, and he said, "because I'm trying to examine you."

And at Auburn, the only two sports that generate revenue are Football and Men's basketball.

I haven't looked at any numbers, but if the baseball team is not, they need to fire whoever be in charge.  Despite the crappy season, they still drew record numbers.  If you're pretty close to capacity in most games, and you're still not profitable, sum ting wong.

Unfortunately attendance doesn’t really equate directly to profitability.

Agreed.  That said, our non-revenue sports are pretty well-attended, you just can't juice folks for tix like FB/BB can do.

Has to come down to operational costs & being locked into contract bids w/ vendors that monopolize goods and services, I would have to think.

I do know that baseball unleashed the new HOF lounge this past season, so I am sure that put a hurtin’ on things, too.

That's probably a big piece of it, for sure.

Boggles my mind that Gymnastics lost 2.5M in 2023.

Just a theory but I think you are about to see serious reductions in staff, assistants, and support areas for the non-revenue sports. Additionally, HC salaries are about to come way down. Whether they accomplish that by letting folks go, encouraging retirement, I don't know, but that's a big piece of ops costs - salary and benefits - and is the usual answer when an entity wants to "cut costs while maximizing returns" and such. You will also likely see more "juice" on the tickets for said events or a lot of NASCAR-type advertising on facilities, uniforms, etc.

You really think that you’re some kind of Mr. Big Shot with all of your fancy math and stuff. Guess what, Bucko. I know Mr. Mathnasium. I will have these numbers checked and verified in no time.

I have his cell number.

Harsin also told us "Let's ride" but we didn't hear the part where he whispered "all the way to my bank."

The sumbitch made Doug Barfield look like an offensive genius.

I will always maintain he tanked the second season after the failed coup d'etat following year one. (Some which may have even been true, but was executed worse than the Auburn passing game.) After that, I think he and his agent said, fine, let's get this buyout.

I'd argue that Phil Montgomery made Hagrid & Keisau look like offensive geniuses on the flip side of that.

2023 was as frustrating as 2012 on the offensive side of the ball.  Our saving grace that kept us from 3-9 was a salty defense (in some games).
