    I'd imagine a bulk of those expenses relate to the "Athletically Related Student Aid" (i.e. student scholarships). The data in the tweet is sourced from the U.S. Department of Education's "Equity in Athletics Data Analysis." Not able to direct link to a specific school - but use this link: https://ope.ed.gov/athletics/#/ . Get Data for One School > Type "Oral Roberts" hit continue > select "Oral Roberts University" hit continue. Here are some screen grabs from ORU's Revenues and Expenses tab:

    I've felt for years that coaches wouldn't care so much about where a kid transfers, IF the NCAA and/or conferences would simply add this little rule: the transfer is ineligible to ever play against his original school during the remainder of his career; even in conference tournament play. The only exception would be the rare instance of meeting in NCAA postseason play. With this rule, the school that loses the player actually gains an advantage if the kid happens to be really good (such as a Baker Mayfield). Everyone else in the league would still have to deal with his talents, but you don't...seems like fair compensation, in my book.
