Response to Re: If I was at Northwestern State and living in Louisiana....
First of all, I hope you didn't go to Winthrop, as your English is not very good.
Second, many schools have waivers, but use them to supplement their cash amount in scholarships. Winthrop is using them so they do not have to fund the cash amount of their scholarships.
Winthrop's out of state tuition costs about $22,000 per year. The waiver pays the out of state costs and now your are left with $12,000 for in state tuition. That is just tuition. Now add the cost of housing, food and books. Another 10 grand.
Heinz once told me that they have about $125,000 in scholarship money. She also told me it doesn't go up if costs go up. Your scholarship actually gets worse every year. So lets do some basic math. Cost of attendance is about $22,000 instate.
125,000/22,000. That is about 6 scholarships.
So, if a coach starts paying out full instate tuition scholarships and a waiver, they could sign about 10 players. No housing, no books, no meals. You can sign good men on that kind of money, but not too many good women. What you end up getting is a team full of a bunch of average club kids that will pay the money to be a DI player.
You may disagree, but the AASU coach made a good choice.
