ASU athletics' money woes?

It is interesting how Appalachian State University's Director of Athletics Charlie Cobb and Chancellor Ken Peacock both are lamenting in separate articles on the great amount of money they have to accumulate to exit the Southern Conference and to join the Sunbelt Conference with an entrance fee and to qualify for various other requirements as a member of that conference. 

Both Peacock and Cobb act as if these costs are a surprise, when they should have investigated the costs of moving from one conference to another before they committed the university to make the move. 

They are now wondering how they will cover these costs; yet, they purchase newly designed football uniforms. 

It would seem that if money were a real priority and a real concern, newly designed football uniforms would not have been purchased. Newly designed costs more than getting uniforms of the previous design. If money were a real concern, Cobb and Peacock would be looking at every way to save the athletic office money. 

They are not doing that.
