    The House of Cards is going to come crashing down at some point...

    There have been a lot of bubbling stories over the last couple months talking about athletics spending, subsidies and debt as it is time for schools to handle their annual budgets. At some point, the house of cards is going to come crashing down, especially with athletics spending rising when professors are seeing RIF or salaries cut and students are seeing tuition and student fees continue to increase. Here are a couple interesting ones I've been watching:

    Washington State

    Per the article, SIU has a $315 fee PER SEMESTER for athletics. I think I recall a small fee during my time at ISU, but it sure wasn't anything close to that.

At one point they were talking about dropping 2 sports but they came to the realization that the income lost would be worse than the savings (or at least im told)
