The Walton College of Business has 4 employees making over 300K; one is the dean and two others are heads of their department.  There is 1 professor making over 300K.  How many actual classes he teaches I do not know.

Does this factor in faculty discounts at participating local businesses?

Back when the WCOB was just the College of Bidness (and the building was simply the BA), two of my Finance and Banking professors were Dr. Money and Dr. Banks.

False. 

And we have to compete with businesses to keep these people.

So false it's crazy.   Yet many many many people think this....

People are so good at telling others how to spend their money. This expansion will not price anybody out of going to a game. It's not going to affect University employee salaries. It's about keeping up. The whole thing is going to be funded by people that chose to fund it. 

I'm all for giving proffs and janitors raises. I hope the powers that be are attuned to the needs of the work force involved with educating 30,000 students and will seek funds to make sure we offer a great education at a competitive price. That's what they offered me 25 years ago, and I'm happy that I chose it.

If we want to win and keep up in the sec, we will have to continually spend money and upgrade. It is up to the people that are willing to give money to make sure that it happens.

If you want to take your family to a game, this won't hurt you one bit.  It will make a difference with the product we have on the field.

I've sat there a couple times. Hated it since the Windows don't open. Moved down to Lower level at halftime both games

It's awesome for thirty degree games against UTEP.

It would suck other than that. The windows are so thick you can't even hear the crowd noise.

Seems a travesty at first blush, but I wonder if DVH makes a lot more "outside income" than Dykes.
From what? Both have camps but I believe DVH gives the vast majority of it to his staff.

What outside income would a college baseball coach get?

Holy hell, that is just crazy ass money for jimmy that could have lured final four coaches with proven track records in a sport with little to no fan base.

Big fan of Mike but this year did not merit any increase in pay.

And long is making $1.8 million?.

When the tv money starts to shrink and it will at some point, it is going to be financial nightmare for a lot of athletic departments.

Also for this kind of scratch, it would nice to see some actual championships won.

I used to sit in the East Outdoor Club and the seats/atomsphere are great and the overhang keeps you dry and helps with the wind.  The concessions/amenities are lacking but I thought that was supposed to be improved with this renovation.

Not only was the atmosphere terrible up in the indoor club but I don't like the seats, they are really tight and there's no good place to put your drink.  It was uncomfortable.  The amenities are really nice up there, though.

I cannot believe Long pulls in over $1.8 million. 2015/2016 was not a good year in Razorback sports when you factor in losing to Toledo and TTech at home for football and the seasons basketball and baseball had. I don't get it.

And thus you cannot effect the atmosphere inside the stadium. Other than the $$ you spend for the tix/donation/concessions....you might as well stay home and watch on TV.

What is the state of the athletic program as a whole? Is it profitable? Is it stable?

The Athletic Director's top priority is profit, winning is in the top 3. Jeff Long is considered one of the best in the country, he's going to make plenty of money anywhere he wants to go.

Haven't read it yet, but I'm sure there's some kind of sarcastic slap at the admin for moving the press seats from courtside to the corner at BWA.
