First of all, is that $155k number actual? Probably, and quite low if you consider it solely Athletic Scholarship money. Of the players listed by DHC that went on to play D-2, (10) of them, how much Athletic Scholarship money did they receive? $15k each if you do the math, or maybe (1) got more than others?
