Football wins can help college's academic reputation
Posted 12 July 2012 - 07:23 AM
A big season might help enhance their universities' academic reputations, too.
According to a working paper published this week by the National Bureau of Economic Research, winning on the field also increases donations, applications, academic reputation, in-state enrollment - and incoming test scores.
Now, keep in mind that the academic and enrollment benefits - while statistically significant - are modest at best, according to the study's authors.
"There are effects, but they're not so large you'd want to run a huge deficit on the team" to chase more victories, said Michael Anderson, an economist at the University of California-Berkeley and the author of the study.

I wonder how much Boise St. academic standards changed over the years.
It is not so much the "standards" that change
the perception that the general public has of a university's academics as a result of a strong athletic program.
Not defending such - just suggesting that is what is.
