KU is #1!
According to USA TODAY… KU spends more money recruiting basketball players than any other public school in Div. I.
First, is that a reliable source?
Second, if it’s true, makes me wonder if we get our money’s worth.
As for a strictly economic question, I’d say they get their moneys worth. Most of our games are featured nationally, it really amazes me actually that down here in the bayou I don’t miss any KU games. We’re a talked about team, desired for the biggest tourneys, and generally in the stream of consciousness of all of our countries college hoops fans.
If it’s March and April results I think someday we’ll look back at KU basketball in these last two or three years and see all of the talent that has come through here and wonder how we were not in the FF every year.
Hey! Don’t forget we are valued at #2 and moving up! See This is good news or great news- something like that.
@wissoxfan83 At least we’re not like Kensucky and wondering why we didn’t make the dance and lost to Robert Morris in the first round of the NIT.
So can they take a loan against that valuation to keep KU football going?
@drgnslayr I love fb too!
I am damned proud we are spending more than UK on recruiting.
And I hope we double the budget.
Recruiting is LEGAL!
One thing to remember is that the success of the basketball team affects non Williams Fund contributions to KU. The success of the team keeps KU in the minds of the alumni. It makes it easier when the endowment people call.
