As UO students and Senate put pressure on bloated Duck budget, coaches finally start raising money for academic scholarships

The Senate legislation is for ~$3M recurring. The coach’s charitable drive is for $500K, one-time.

A cynic might think this announcement is a reaction to the UO Senate’s recent legislation to require the Ducks to make payments from their bloated budget to support the academic side, or to the Change.org petition by UO students, protesting AAD Eric Roedl’s cuts to student ticket allotments. Helfrich just got a $17.5M raise, and is pledging $250K of that to the scholarship drive:

    Oh no! UO and the AD will now lose all donors when the AD starts to support academics…

    Do you have any records of the AD’s claim that the demand for football tickets would be perfectly elastic and that they couldn’t even afford to donate a dollar per football ticket?
