UT’s fiscal calendar is from September 1 to August 31. The fiscal years of many athletic departments end in June, which is why those schools are cutting back now. UT has time to figure out if cuts are necessary.Ketch - I wonder if there is a potential recruiting advantage for the Horns around financial strength of the program/athletic department?
Maybe not against the very top programs, but against some second tier programs?
I just saw Anwar's note about Kansas AD. Self & Miles taking pay cuts which spurred the thought. Now as a recruit, I might not be too concerned that Les Miles is Making $3.2M vs. $3.5M (just made up those numbers). But I could be concerned that if Les Miles is taking a pay cut, that might mean that they are cutting back in other areas that will more directly effect me and my development/success in their program.
