Athletic departments at State schools are not profitable

Unlike RScannix, I don't consider the 11 million dollars spent by the UF on its non-revenue sports to be a "loss". Thankfully, the very profitable football program funds a very good overall program, including one of the best women's programs in the country. I'll look at the study, but one question comes to mind. Withoout the student fees and general school funds and services, would the schools be able to fund their non-revenue producing sports programs and comply with Title IX? I'll bet that the football programs at most state supported schools, taken by themselves, would be profitable without the student fees, etc., but it's not all about football, folks.
