Athletic budget update #30 - SMU cuts ten positions
Roosevelt University in Chicago is adding an entire intercollegiate athletic program, two decades after a decision was made to close the department. They intend to start 12 teams over the next five years.
The New York Times wrote a summary article about students that have rejected fee increases to support athletics (all of which were previously covered by ultimatesportsinsider.com) . They also have an article about the large number of graduates from sports management programs and the absence of jobs when they finish their degrees.
