    At Least 15 Athletics Programs to Offer More Than $4,000 in Extra Aid to Athletes

    http://m.chronicle.com/article/At-Le...ograms/229229/

    The change was designed to direct more money to players as television money has expanded. But disparities in what programs can offer have put new pressure on college budgets and altered the dynamics of recruiting.
    Spending power among the five biggest conferences — the Atlantic Coast, Big Ten, Big 12, Pacific-12, and Southeastern — varies greatly.
    Three of the top four programs are from the Southeastern Conference: Tennessee ($5,666), Auburn University ($5,586), and Mississippi State ($5,126). A total of seven SEC programs are among the top 20, according to the analysis, which included a review of institutions’ financial-aid websites and cost-of-attendance figures that the colleges report to the federal government.

    I'm excited for Harbaugh to bring Michigan back to glory. The Harbaugh/Meyer duo will ensure a great rivalry and further improve B1G fball.

    I'm a 49ers fan that wishes he would have stayed, but truth be told, I'd prefer to coach college fball to the pros anyday, especially with the amount of money being paid to these guys i.e. saban, sumlin, harbaugh

    Re: At Least 15 Athletics Programs to Offer More Than $4,000 in Extra Aid to Athletes

    An update:

    Last year, after a federal judge ruled that the National Collegiate Athletic Association may not cap scholarships for athletes below their full cost of attendance, Texas Christian University conducted an online survey of undergraduates to determine the accuracy of its cost-of-attendance estimates.
    The university asked students how much they spent on housing, groceries, and commuting, and how many trips they took home during the semester. As part of the analysis, the university called airlines, apartment complexes, and local businesses to evaluate the costs that students might incur above their tuition, fees, room and board, and books.
    Colleges are required to submit an estimate of those costs to the federal government. The costs can influence prospective students’ choice of institution and affect how much money they can borrow to go to college.
    Texas Christian determined that students’ monthly living expenses were much higher than the university had been projecting. As a result, the university came up with a new estimate — $4,700 per academic year, more than double its previous figure — which it now includes among the expenses for prospective students.
    The change makes TCU, which costs nearly $60,000 a year to attend, appear even more expensive than it has been in recent years. The move also provides the athletic department with a potential new bargaining chip in the recruitment of elite athletes.
    Beginning this fall, major-college athletic departments are set to begin covering players’ full cost of attendance, part of a change enacted in January by the five biggest conferences.
    In the span of a few months, Texas Christian went from having one of the lowest cost-of-attendance estimates among the 65 biggest athletic departments to one of the highest, according to a Chronicle analysis.
    Moves like that have led to much consternation in college sports, as programs with less money to spend worry that they will be at a competitive disadvantage in recruiting players.
    Such worries have led athletic directors to consider new rules that would standardize aid allowances for athletes. The discussions are at an early stage but have included suggestions that all major programs be allowed to offer players a certain amount — say, $4,000 per player over nine months — no matter how much their colleges cost to attend.
    The changes have also prompted athletics officials at several major colleges to make calls to their financial-aid offices, asking if the cost-of-attendance estimates can be increased to accommodate athletics.
    Financial-aid officials say they would not make such accommodations just for athletics, as the changes could affect their overall recruiting efforts and how much financial aid they must hand out to students in need. But they understand the motivations for colleges.
    “It’s put a perverse incentive on schools to inflate their listed costs,” says Chuck Knepfle, director of financial aid at Clemson University. He says he has not been asked to change his estimates or felt pressure to do so. “But there is certainly an incentive if a school wants to do that.”
    Swings in Estimates

    Despite pressures to keep their overall prices low, many colleges in the five biggest athletics conferences — the Atlantic Coast, Big Ten, Big 12, Pacific-12, and Southeastern — have increased their cost-of-attendance estimates steadily in recent years, according to a Chronicle analysis of the figures that institutions report to the federal government.

    Ten of the 65 colleges in those leagues have raised their estimated cost-of-attendance expenses by at least 20 percent over a recent seven-year period. Five institutions have at least doubled those miscellaneous expenses during that time. (Colleges calculate the number by looking at the difference between “direct” costs — tuition, fees, room and board, and books — and “indirect” costs, such as transportation and other personal expenses.)

    ...


    Officials at Auburn University, whose cost-of-attendance estimates had remained relatively flat during six of those recent seven years — from $2,304 and $2,678 — experienced a big spike in 2014-15. That year its numbers jumped to $5,586, where they will remain for 2015-16, says Mike Reynolds, executive director of student financial services.
    He says Auburn had mistakenly not been including transportation costs in the estimates, which it added in 2014. Institutions must account for cost-of-attendance estimates different ways for different reports, he says, and it was a simple oversight that had nothing to do with sports.(DiD comment: does ANYONE believe this. )
