The University of California-Berkeley's dramatic, sustained decrease in its subsidization of its athletics program during a recent three-year period may well be replicable by other NCAA Division I schools.

But none has done it.

According to Cal athletics director Sandy Barbour and the campus' vice chancellor for administration and finance, John Wilton, none has even asked Cal officials how they did it.

"I think there are a couple of reasons for that — one of which is I think it's widely recognized that, in about every way imaginable, Berkeley's different," Barbour said with a chuckle.

Just five of the 227 public schools that were in Division I from 2009-10 through 2012-13 have managed to reduce their subsidies for athletics in each of the past three years, a USA TODAY Sports analysis found — Cal, Illinois, Missouri, South Carolina State and Southern Illinois. And Cal was the only one of those five to drop its subsidies by more than $1.2 million during those years.
