    Default Former Gopher official David Benedict won't rule out cutting sports at UCONN

    per ESPN:

    UConn won't rule out eliminating some sports to close a more than $40 million gap in its athletic department budget.

    Athletic director David Benedict, speaking before Saturday's men's basketball game against Tulane, said there remains a strong belief that UConn has become a nationally renowned university in part because of its sports success.

    But he said the athletic division must examine how it is structured. He says UConn will look at all opportunities to increase revenue and cut expenses before considering cutting a sport.

    "There's a lot of athletic departments over the past few years that have had to do that," Benedict said. "It's probably one of the most difficult things you can do as an athletic director and an athletic department. We're going to look at all opportunities to try to deal with this prior to that, but sometimes there's inevitabilities."

    Go Gophers!!

    But they should definitely be paying the athletes though.

    It keeps all those non-revenue programs afloat.
