I believe he proposed to shut down football or eliminate a bunch of

football scholarships, something to that effect. Many of those in academia which I believe he was have little interest in athletics or are appalled by what it has become. I am too to an extent but I enjoy ECU athletics enough to look past it. Plus as I said, aside from the money itself the real value in the revenue generating sports is the marketing opportunity to get ECU's name out there and attract students. Many students want to go to a school with a vibrant, successful athletics program simply because it's a lot of fun. That's why these coaches are paid what they are. They are under a lot of pressure to make money for the school.
