March Madness sure is getting expensive for some.

    Athletic Director Trev Alberts cuts football to promote basketball. Overall it’s really costing $2.7 million after buyouts and upgrades.

    Schools like that have no business having football, IMO: urban location/commuter student base, public, several steps below the state flagship. I mean, who do they think they are, Georgia State or something?
