The local paper’s quoting Marilyn Flowers, an economics professor – and chair of the department – at Ball State who’s been going after campus athletics.

Ball State has more than $14 million budgeted for its athletics programs. Approximately 80 percent of the budget is paid for from student fees – almost $9 million – and institutional support – almost $2.5 million.

“When it costs so much for kids to go to school, and you charge them $800 a year and most of them don’t go to any games, that I think is really unfortunate,” Flowers said.

    BSU is SO behind the curve. If you are embarrassed by student turnout, everyone knows that you start awarding door prizes or having drawings for cash prizes for attendees.
