It is time for the annual update of the Virginia Tech
Athletics financial information. The following information for the fiscal year
ended June 30, 2009 has, as in prior years, the following standard caveats:

    prior year numbers within the same school depending on how the school
    chooses to present its reports. Contributions reported will not agree to

For this report, I have presented the past three years for
both Virginia Tech and UVA. In the first presentation, the Virginia Tech numbers
are presented for the past three years and a report of the changes between the
2009 and 2008 years are also reported.
