I agree but Baseball is obviously very important to ECU fans

For most it is their 2nd favorite sport at ECU and in some cases it is their number 1 sport. Football obviously brings in all the money. My hope is we are about to turn the financial ship around with Coach Houston putting more fans in the stands and ticket revenue, game day concession money,merchandise sales etc.. going up. I also hope that Coach Dooley is going to put ECU Basketball in a position to make some money with increased ticket sales. The AAC is going to bring us more money in the new tv contract and hopefully an increasing bank of NCAA Tournament units if the league stays together and continues its current trend line in Basketball. If we have increased revenue it is just my argument that we could then afford to pay a non revenue sport like Baseball better money. I am just hoping to get Cliff to about the $600k level all in with bonuses thinking that plus his loyalty to ECU would keep him here.
He can take a million dollar SEC job but he damn sure knows from his time at Ole Miss etc.. that it no longer is about dreaming about Omaha it is about meeting the demand that you make it there or you are going to lose your job.
