Athletic department revenue may have covered the cost of the schollie but there are way more expenses involved within athletics than just the monies associated with the players.Allow me to give YOU a clue. Quotes from a 247 story by Chris Anderson regarding WVU athletic revenue and expenses for 2019.
"For the third year in a row, the athletic department did not take a single dollar from 'school funds.' "
Regarding Athletic Department expenses, "Scholarship expenses hung tight around $11 million, which they've done the last three years since 'full cost' measures went into place."
If the Athletic department covers the 'full cost' of an athlete's attendance that equates to the cost to the school being NOTHING.
