Maybe we need to add Catholic to ours. Just looked up endowments, MU $0.9 billion - TCU $2.5 billion; same size schools.

Great idea, MCU is known to bring in big bucks!

MU ‘s endowment is pretty low for a
top tier school.

Good win for Baylor last night over
Kansas !

In general, endowments at Catholic schools tend to run smaller than other similar sized private institutions. The main reason for this is that these schools didn't have as much financial issues early on due to support from their various orders.  For instance, Marquette filled a lot of positions with Jesuit priests in the past which were usually just considered "contributed services." So the need to raise money for endowments was never a huge priority.

But as less and less people are becoming priests and nuns, schools have had to hire lay people to fill these roles.  This is putting pressure on these schools budgets and many are playing catch up in the endowment area.  This is one of the reasons you are seeing a lot of Catholic schools closing. Presentation College in South Dakota just announced their closure yesterday. Holy Names University in Oakland did the same last month.  And for every closure, there are a handful that are just stringing along hoping to survive.  I'm not going to go into details, but there are a couple in Wisconsin that I would not be surprised if they close in the next decade.  COVID funds saved a number of them and those ran out last year.

Obviously there are exceptions to this general rule.

Because they’re not afraid to put “christian” in their name.

If that is what it takes to raise $ for the university, count me out.

Sultan, what’s considered a healthy safety net endowment these days?  Is MU at least in a safe zone especially if/when that gets to 1-1.5 billion. It seems like donors are continuing to fund projects and the endowment continues to get incrementally larger.  Any chance MU could be in trouble in the foreseeable future?

That is a quad 3 loss I can live with.

Maybe even the only loss I'd like to fall to Q4 😅

What is a good endowment? Hard to say when you have to balance it out with your other sources of revenue.  But Marquette is absolutely fine and will be around for a very long time.  They raise a lot of money, have been steadily growing their endowment, and have a great mix of programs - business, engineering and nursing in particular.

I'd be ok with that, too.  But highly unlikely.  Wisconsin would have to drop to 161 in NET to be a Q4 home game.  For reference, DePaul is 152.

 Muggsy, posters on this board say far worse things about the program he played for.    It is begrudging respect from a rival. 

If MU sucked, he wouldn't be bothering.

That's true Tower but if he's announcing MU games he's disqualified.

I think you're thinking of Brian Butch. Ben Brust has a radio show I believe. Easy to get the BB Badgers mixed up
TAMU

I do know, Newsie is right on you knowing ball.

Butch has done color for a few Marquette games in the last year or so and has actually been pretty good, which surprised the hell out of me.

This seemed inevitable after this past week. Two home games where they got down by 30+ in the second half. He was never a good choice for this gig - in way over his head.

Would normally be excited for them getting a fresh start, but who knows who they can afford at this point.

I think they are going to target Wisconsin native Saul Phillips, the former Ohio and NDSU coach and current coach at Northern State.  The AD at UWGB hired Phillips when he was at Northern State too.  (He did not hire Will Ryan at GB though...)

The only complicating factor here is that Will Ryan was an assistant for Phillips, and Phillips played for Bo Ryan at Platteville.
