Busting brackets, not budgets

At $3.1 million Wichita State’s funds can’t even top Pitino’s salary
Carl Hall and Wichita State might not have a budget that reaches that of Deshaun Thomas and Ohio State; at $3.1 million, it doesn’t even touch Louisville coach Rick Pitino’s $3.9 million salary. But in the NCAA Tournament, the Shockers have proven that everything is equal on the hardwood.
Louisville head coach Rick Pitino makes more than the whole budget for the Wichita State basketball program. But the fiscal disparity between the big school and the mid-major hardly will matter when the Shockers take on the Cardinals for the right to play for the national championship.
Wichita State head coach Gregg Marshall has rebuffed every attempt to pry him away from the Shockers. “Our administration gives us wonderful support,” Marshall said this week. “We fly on private planes every time we leave town. We have 10,500 fans at every game. It’s a great place to coach.”
