In responding to our inquiry about what the readers suggest we do about UTEP football this comment came in:
“Yawn. If it pays for itself, OK. If it doesn’t, get rid of it.”
We found this web page published by the Texas Tribune:
According to the web page during the 2015-2016 school year UTEP spent $9,699,853 on their football program.
Ticket sales amounted to $582,469.
The rest of the shortfall came from student fees, university funds, NCAA fees, and contributions.
We deserve better
