BPI is paying $2.4 million to be a sponsor of the Holiday Bowl.
So here's an interesting metric. They could have increased the number of full time faculty by almost 50% for what they spent on a single football game.
With 56 full time faculty for 77,000 students and an 85% drop out / failure rate, why wouldn't a football game be more important than adding qualified teachers. It's only a question of priorities.
Another great decision by the management team at BPI. And, the timing couldn't be better with the HLC meeting coming up in February. You couldn't make this stuff up if you tried.
Imagine what the cost would have been if the game had been able to attract two nationally ranked teams. Will it be the Son of the Beef O'Brady Bowl?
