But let's be realistic -- even with the budget deficit applying to 2019-20, it would be wise to consider the possibility that expenditures might be more conservative in 2020-21. If we're spending the rainy day fund now, as we should, I'm sure the powers that be will want to start rebuilding it.

I would not be surprised at all to see championship expenditures played closer to the vest in 2020-21.

Yes ... but they put money into the reserve every year from the budget as I understand it. Do they put more in? Possibly, but I suspect they will do everything they can to avoid having that cause changes to championships. Would they maybe limit one flight? Possibly, but we wait for that to happen every year. That's nothing new.

Just a complete outsider's opinion, but expecting the NCAA to spend $ on D3 during uncertain financial times is probably not a good bet.  I'm leaning towards a tighter belt this fall.  Assuming we get to have a fall 2020 season......
I find easily offended people rather offensive!

kind of agree. Not saying I think the playoffs will be pared down at all, but I think seeing a SIAC-NWC first round game and a hypothetical UMHB and Hardin Simmons first round game would be a possibility to save one flight.

DIII has already announced (per my podcast with Dan Dutcher) that the budget really doesn't have plans for belt tightening in a grand scheme. They have their money budgeted already.

What has been announced is that all championship banquets will not happen for any sport this upcoming academic year. That will help save a little under $500,000. Again, mainly to get the money put back into the reserve that needed to cover the shortfall this past academic year.
