President announces end to athletic subsidies!

That would be Portland State President Wim Weiwel. Ken Goe has the story in the Oregonian, here:

Portland State president Wim Wiewel has directed that the PSU football team become self-sufficient by the 2014-15 academic year. …

Their football program loses money. In comparison UO’s football program makes millions, which the Duck athletic department keeps for themselves. Then they get millions more in subsidies from the academic side.

My post on the UO Senate legislation to end those subsidies is here.
