    In discussing the budget, the president pointed out that scholarship costs are not actual costs because some of the accounting expense attributed to the athletic department "comes back to the university" in the form of tuition, room and board. The Athletics Committee must have agreed with the UAB president because the committee passed a resolution "that it supports an NCAA Division I athletics program at UAB ... including Division I football as a key and vital part of UAB's athletic program." UAB President Carol Garrison, July 11, 2003.
