Spent a lot of money on those bells.
That's the Rutgers University fight -- my guess that is up my best -- that's -- often as a player.
Scoring all those touchdowns -- -- solid nights.
And now -- Rutgers athletic director Tim Burnett joins us -- I could see attempted to see eucharist all right now let's talk about big money because what -- specifically because earlier this year.
Big -- blue.
In at University of California Berkeley and -- -- just gone -- state and expansion project as well.
They're spending hundreds of millions of dollars expand fixing memorial statements on a fall line and try to fix up the stadium.
And yet they have to raise tuition for the kids 8% and it was a big hue and cry how can you spend all this money in sports when the same time you've got to raise tuition.
How would you respond to somebody who might say the same thing about what's going on around.
Yours it's difficult question but the bottom line is anybody that thinks collegiate athletics these days is not a business school themselves as a really is but.
The bottom line is is the expenses of running -- university put athletics aside expenses of running -- university don't stay the same every single year.
You know professors are more expense of the facilities need to be fixed up.
The cost go up so increasing tuition is is a natural progression and in keeping up with the expenses of running -- university.
In athletics it really all depends on how you do -- a -- -- what -- is -- on -- at our place we do the right way we -- the stadium expansion so that.
Club -- in premium -- revenue and and revenue out of the new seats that we.
Put into the new stadium which was 111000 would pay down the debt over a period of time I think everybody does a little differently -- university subsidize it some don't.
But you know the way we did it that's the way we did -- a much are they are but it's a vicious cycle I agree.
We'll just staying with rockers then are your books separate from the school's books I was your revenue comes from ticket sales it comes from whatever TV deals you have been with the NCAA.
Comes from boosters -- and the alumni is it really is is there a lot of money being passed back and forth in the school in the athletic association.
I mean our budget is is a component of the overall budget of the university -- it's not a separate entity by any means and there are some expenses that cross from one side of the river to the other.
At -- but at the same time it's not a separate entity it's all fully integrated within the budget of the university OK I wanted to talking to law implied that you hear about the.
Situation with agents huge story it's not a new story that -- might be the biggest part of the story isn't going on for decades and it continues.
Reggie Bush had to give up -- -- and a couple years ago can't do and I can win it this year.
-- in the second half of the season having to deal with all this controversy about his father -- schools and boosters to pay for him to go to school there.
What are what does the NCA Dooley and what does -- is doing to try and combat this -- -- keep this in arms like.
Was clearly an issue and everybody's aware that including the new president at the NCAA I think the steps he's taken already to try to.
Get better educated work more closely to try to understand the dynamic for the professional leagues I think is a great first step.
Know from our standpoint I think any school can only control what they control.
It's really a football and men's basketball issue -- really you know really dealing with any other sports -- -- agents but.
Our coaches -- -- -- -- -- Mike rice or basketball coach they do a great job educating our student athletes about the process about.
How agents try to enter the world how they try to to -- that student athletes at certain times in their career -- to me it's it's all bad educational campus your kids come.
To compete and get their degree on your campus you have to do the best you possibly can do to educate them.
The hard part is not within 44 hours that been real quick.
Obviously a playoff system anytime soon your opinion on.
In my opinion is that the BCS has served college football very well -- continued to evolve which is good.
I would be hard pressed to believe that some version of a playoff which may include the current BCS system won't be coming but.
That's system was created -- to make the regular season important and put one into on the field on that argument has done though.
It's nonsense all right legendary player and now administrator truckers to.
Stamford Connecticut could see it -- some money back -- you all right thank.
