Wouldn’t it be based on scholarship count, not head count?
You would think so, but I don’t see how Texas comes up with a $6M figure if they are only going by athletes on scholarship.
The pay for using their image might be by head count and the rest prorated by scholarship. It doesn’t really explain how they got that number though.
Texas sponsors 16 sports (if you count track, indoor track, and cross country as one). PSU sponsors 26 (counting the same way and counting the two fencing programs as one sport). Whatever the number is for PSU, it will almost have to be higher than Texas’s.
The sports that PSU has that Texas doesn’t are: Fencing, Ice Hockey (M&W), Gymnastics (M&W), Lacrosse (M&W), Soccer (M), Volleyball (M), Wrestling (M), and Field Hockey (W).
Texas does sponsor women’s crew while PSU doesn’t.
