How a midlevel school became The University of Adidas at Louisville (http://www.espn.com/espn/otl/story/_/id/21710106/louisville-athletic-director-tom-jurich-leveraged-big-deals-build-university-sports-powerhouse-only-watch-burn-amid-charges-excess)

My opinion...... this is one argument used by schools like Pepperdine, Loyola, USF (schools with access to resources) from getting into high stakes sports business. The juice isn't worth the squeeze.

Gonzaga University Administration went the other way and gambled on basketball pulling the University through some very tough times. Not one size fits all.

Pretty scary article. When your AD is making $2+ million a year, you're asking for trouble. Greed is one of the most powerful forces in the universe.

ETA: Even scarier is the thought that he'll sign on as an AD at another university.
