A: New SUU athletic director Debbie Corum would rather play just one "money game," at about $1 million per year. She’s working on it. There’s a long line to get on the schedule of the $1 million opponents such as Alabama, Michigan and Georgia.
Corum was viewed as a coup of a hire by Southern Utah; for five years she was the Senior Women’s Athletic administrator at UConn, a women’s basketball bigshot at the NCAA’s biggest women’s basketball school. Before that, she was on the administrative staff of the Southeastern Conference, LSU and at Stanford.
So now the Thunderbirds are thinking bigger than ever before; they will play two games at Utah and another at Arizona State in the near future, but Saturday’s game in Tucson is the only UA-SUU game scheduled.
