According to the information in The Santa Clara that was the amount of Gonzaga's mens basketball expenses, although for which year is not mentioned. I suspect not for this season as those expenses are probably not tabulated as yet. For more info see the link:

Two numbers The Santa Clara would likely not want to see is the one year expense for the entire GU Athletic Department and the revenue the GU Men's basketball team generated for that year.

GU made just over $1M off Men's Bball.

SCU made $5K in the same time period.

The preliminary budget projection for 2007-08 came in at a record $84,192,600 in total spending authority. The University Ridge budget accounts for $3.6 million, while camps and clinics total $2.45 million. The remaining $78,142,600 represents the rest of the athletic department's projected spending for operating and capital expenses.

University of Wisconsin...just for comparison...or perspective - oh yeah, they're raising the ticket prices btw

Seems like money well spent! For a modest $700,000 more than Santa Clara, GU has: better coaches, better players, a better schedule, national prestige, national marketing, international recruiting. Add to that a better fan base, better arena, more stablity and a higher ceiling and I think it's hard to argue that GU is overspending on basketball. Fact is, GU has gotten an incredible return on its investment, which is one of my arguments for giving players a share of NCAA profits in addition to academic compensation, but that's another issue.

I believe the totals above are for all sports, right? Why does LMU spend so much more, that seams strange. No WCC schools still have football, right? I would think that football would make your budget skyrocket more than anything.

USD has a successful D-IAA football team, which helps account for its expenses, as well as offering more sports overall.

LMU also offers more varsity sports (19) on an institutionally-supported basis.

I read somewhere else--I don't have the source link anymore--that, to get Davey out of the coaching gig, some SCU alum have made it possible for SCU to up the basketball budget by about $700K. Big increase if the budget is at 2 million now. If you ask me, they should have let Davey have the first crack at the new funds.

I think the issue was the big donor(s) were not going to donate the $$$ until/unless Davey was gone.

I think the money would have helped without the mandate to get rid of D.D. I'm criticizing the donor for playing his money against the A.D.'s authority to make such decisions. We'll see how K.K. does.

USD has had the #1 ranked non-scholarship team the last 2 years. Their quarterback Josh Johnson was ranked as the 5th overall Junior QB in the quarterback by Mel Kiper Jr. Johnson will almost suredly be drafted next year.

Yeah, but how much money did we generate for the conference?

I will happily acknowledge that St. Mary's also "chipped in" ....
