This school needs an Erv

This school needs an Erv

Former league partner in all sports and current NDSU foe in the Western Wrestling Conference Northern Colorado continues to struggle with the pocket book. That’s not a good sign at this stage in the school’s Division I life.

The cuts come despite the wrestling program having raised its own money to endow a good portion of its budget. Even more scary is the snail’s pace of growth in the UNC budget; it spent $4.1 million in its first year of Division I in 2003-04, according to a Forum story. Take inflation into account and the $6.4 million figure for ’07-08 can barely be considered an increase.

NDSU’s budget, meanwhile, has easily toppled $10 million. The Bison have done it by scouring the country for clients with an efficent fundraising force. You have to wonder: do the Bears have anybody that has come close to the fundraising job Erv Inniger has done at NDSU? I’ve seen Erv in more airports than I’ve been in airports.
