Care to specify the sport?

If you're talking about football, that will never happen again.

Basketball, who knows.

Baseball, probably the very next season.

Sport?

Railing on Vandy is no longer cool. They’re a baseball power.

I'll do it for football. It will be the day the federal government says that Public State Universities can only get players from their own state. Private schools just like Private high schools can still go get whomever they want.

Vandy can if they want to. Theyve got more money than any of the rest of us. They choose not to and thats fine. But they are holding themselves back, its not because they cant.

As I understand it, the University subsidizes Vandy's AD for whatever shortfall. All monies from the SEC TV contract are just offseting that subsidy. As an example, suppose it takes Vandy $100M/yr to run its AD, and ticket revenues and everything else generate $30M. The University delivers $70M to the AD to get them to even.

Now that the SEC TV contract produces $40M/yr, the AD now has $70M towards its $100M budget, and the University has to chip in $30M. In the end, the AD did not actually see the $40M the SEC TV contract produced, b/c the university withdrew the same amount of funding.

I think other ADs in the SEC are just collecting the $40M and putting it towards facilities, etc.

In addition, Vandy provides generous support towards tuition for all students. So if Vandy costs $70k/yr to attend, and your family can't afford that, Vandy may only charge your parents $10K. For athletes, the university charges the AD the full $70K for the scholarship, even though I would guess many athletes would actually pay much less than that if they attended the university as regular students.

Lastly, the university has claimed many donors off limits to the AD as the university wants all of that money to support the academic mission. There are rumors that the AD has had to decline donations from wealthy donors and and redirect them to the general university fund.

Because of this asinine policies, Vandy will never have the funds to be truly competitive in the SEC. I would guess that they need $800M to just get their facilites up to par with the SEC, let alone keeping up for any future builds.

This is interesting. Sports are meant to be secondary to an education, but to limit the donations for athletics seems contradictory to the academic mission. It’s been proven that success in sports directly impacts enrollment numbers.

It's not just the money that is an issue though. The academic standards keeps a huge majority of the best athletes out. Not that all the best athletes are dumb, but just not smart enough for Vandy.

I don't disagree with you, but enrollment and applications aren't a problem at Vanderbilt. Acceptance rate is barely over 10%.
