I think it is important to note that only basketball and football are full scholarship sports. The rest are partial with each sport having a limit based on the sum value of X scholarships. Hockey is 18, I think baseball is 12, wrestling 9 etc. and as we know some conferences have lower numbers. It seems to me every dorm room has to be full and there can't be an empty seat in every classroom before you consider a scholarship a true incremental cost. Given the pending reduction in the college age population there are likely to be plenty of empty beds and empty chairs.
