But I never see anyone explain why that matters.
Look, both schools make far more off of their football programs than either spent this postseason, so it’s not like they don’t have the scratch to cover the shortfall. If the schools aren’t making the taxpayers fork over money for the expenses and there’s no fraud involved, I’m not getting the point to the attention. Especially in Auburn’s case – it’s not as if a school plays for a national title every day. Let ’em live a little.
