Sports At Any Cost - Brad Wolverton, Ben Hallman, Shane Shifflett and Sandhya Kambhampati, Huffington Post

The HuffPost/Chronicle analysis found that subsidization rates tend to be highest at colleges where ticket sales and other revenue is the lowest — meaning that students who have the least interest in their college’s sports teams are often required to pay the most to support them. Many colleges that heavily subsidize their athletic departments also serve poorer populations than colleges that can depend more on outside revenue for sports. The 50 institutions with the highest athletic subsidies averaged 44 percent more Pell Grant recipients than the 50 institutions with the lowest subsidies during 2012-13, the most recent year available. http://projects.huffingtonpost.com/ncaa/sports-at-any-cost
