I'll check out the rest of that article when I have a bit of time, but I noticed one error right of the bat. The UC soccer cut was not COVID related according to everything else I've read.

That’s not surprising. I just heard that because of the financial fallout of the coronavirus pandemic both the University of Louisville, and the University of Kentucky, are reducing numbers of staff and faculty and/or giving pay cuts.

One of the more interesting lines from the article is this;

“Universities and their highly competitive and profitable football programs are holding on to hope that the 2020-21 season will be played in some form or fashion. If not, $4.1 billion, an average of $78 million per institution, will be at risk”
