Financial Solutions for College Athletic Budgets

Michael Cross, Executive Associate Director of Athletics at Princeton University, writes a blog entitled "Ultimate Sports Insider," which is dedicated to news, observations and commentary about college athletics with a focus on the relationship of athletics to higher education as a business and educational enterprise. The goal of is to be the most thoughtful, content driven and thought provoking forum available for discussing the real issues in college sports and the NCAA.

Back in January, Cross wrote a two-part feature on Financial Solutions for College Athletic Budgets. Part One dealt with institutional ideas, while Part Two dealt with conference and national ideas.

Some of these suggestions were on the table during the Annual Meeting of the Centennial Conference at McDaniel College in May. You can see that escalating athletic budgets are being questioned not only in Division III, but Divisions I and II as well.
