Quick thoughts on Rice Investment
Tuesday Rice announced a major program labeled the Rice Investment. The full release further details the scope, but I wanted to pass along a few impacts on the athletic program.
The football scholarship situation shouldn't change drastically, rather expect to see upticks in other sports.
Rice baseball stands to see one of the biggest bumps. This program should go a long way to supplement the limited number of athletic scholarships that are permitted. It really doesn't matter which pool is being used, free school is free school.
On that note, the majority of Rice's rival schools don't have anything like this. If an athlete wants to play ball elsewhere they'll have to foot the bill. The bottom line: this is a huge win for Rice Athletics, too.
