A few more thoughts now that you've brought in NDSU: It's a $400k cut per year they face. That's still 20% of the $2 million of state funds subsidizing their programs. On, as you say, a $22 million budget.
Meanwhile, UND has to cut $1.3 million (20%). It would logically follow UND is using $6.5 million to subsidize their $26 million budget.
Now as you've noted UND cut out more than the $1.3M. Using FY16 and cutting baseball, M/W S&D, and WIH, they nominally cut out $4M. And it's $4 million less of state monies into athletics.
So NDSU was using $2M and UND about $6.5M by these calcs. But now UND has cut out about $4M of subsidized play to be more like NDSU.
