When Director Danny White takes over Buffalo Athletics later this summer he will inherit one of the large budgets in the MAC, yet its a budget that is barely half of what he was used to working with at Mississippi.

The Rebels sported one of the smaller budgets in the SEC, but even with hardly any institutional support (7%) the Reb's spent 49 Million dollars last season. Buffalo, on the other hand, calls on institutional support for nearly 80% of their 26 million dollar budget.

But it's not all bad news, Buffalo is second in MAC in total spending, fourth in ticket sales, and second in licensing revenue. Contrary to popular belief our coaches are pretty well paid usually near the top of conference.

Miami of Ohio is the big spender and EMU tops the revenue. Toledo earns a cap tip for using the least amount of institutional support.
