WCC Expenses Stats

Post by Stonehouse on Mon Feb 07, 2011 10:23 pm

OK everyone... I totally nerded out, fired up Excel, and went to town with the numbers that were just released by the federal government about collegiate athletic expenses, which helps determine Title IX compliance.

http://ope.ed.gov/athletics/index.aspx

(Don't worry... all this data is easily downloadable, so I didn't have to search this stuff out one-by-one.)

Most of the stats are self-explanatory... the "cost per WCC win" stat divides the total basketball expenses from 2005-2009 with the total number of WCC wins, which gives a rough gauge of how WCC teams perform relative to cost.

One strange statistical oddity... Gonzaga's basketball expenses more than doubled to 6.25 million in 2009, and for the life of me I can't figure out why. The only thing I can think of is that Gonzaga altered its reporting and changed what expenses they attribute to men's basketball. Any other guesses?

Whatever the reason, as of right now Gonzaga’s expenses are the 27th highest of ALL Division I schools, and the highest of any school on the West Coast with the exception of UCLA, which ranks 26th overall and whose expenses are only $20,000 more than GU’s. It's easily the highest amount among non-BCS conference schools.

Their expenses didn't double. their total expense line for the basketball team was exactly the same as their revenue - the same as all the other teams.

What changed is that they got more revenue, so to do zero sum accounting, it has to look the same on the expense side. I'm sure it was all rolled into the general fund. that can go pay for all the goodies they don't have to report for the purposes of the database. Maybe it's paying off the soccer stadium Razz

Look at it another way. We can't compute what the basketball expenses are from this database, it's purposely obscured so you can't tell a coaches salary (though you can take a guess). What we CAN do is figure out what the expenses couldn't be higher than just by assuming that ALL men's coaching salaries are for basketball. Same for recruiting expenses. they don't subdivide my team, only by gender (this is, after all, a gender equity database) You can figure basketball takes up a sizable piece of that anyway.

they list the total operating expenses for the MBB team as.......................$801,123
they list the school's entire recruiting expenses for all teams as................$189,673
they list all the men's coaches salaries in the school as.........................$1,857,208

the portion of athletically related student aid for BB has to be computed. they claim they
gave out $1,943,225 for 46 scholarships. For 14 MBB players that's.............$591,416
by NCAA rule, all scholarships are the same. this seems low, at just over $42k per scholarship. Maybe they are counting partials.
Adjust upwards as you like. Even if you count $60K, the final number only changes by a quarter $million or so. this is interesting - this database used to tell you what a scholarship was worth. Somewhere I have screenshots, i'll try to find them. I suppose you could add up the number of scholarships the NCAA allows for Gonzaga's men's teams, assume all teams are fully funded, and use that as the divisor.


Those are the numbers that go into the computing of expenses at the bottom of the expense page.

so, even if you say ALL the salary went to basketball, and ALL the recruiting budget went to basketball,

the number can't be higher than $3,439,420

the rest is in the Fitzgerald slush fund Bow

all of a sudden their bucks per win looks better.

Sports accounting isn't really my thing. But, I'm glad that UP is giving Rev more recruiting resources than they gave his predecessors...since he demanded that before taking the job. That's really paying big dividends...
