First, thanks to Cool Justice readers for all the great tips.
Maybe UConn basketball coach Jim Calhoun wasn't thinking straight when he tried to shout down reporter Ken Krayeske and talk about facts at the same time.
Practice what you scream, coach.
It certainly looks like men's basketball brought in only $7.33 million instead of the $12 million Calhoun claimed.
UConn men's basketball generated $7.3 million in revenue and spent $6.1 million in 2007-08, according to information Athletic Director Jeff Hathaway and Assistant Athletic Director Maureen O'Connor filed with the U.S. Department of Education as part of its Equity in Athletics Analysis.
Maybe Calhoun's $12 million figure is from the men's and women's team combined, which totaled $12.6 million in revenue in '07-08.
