The money is increasing because costs and revenue are increasing, not because of the 0.00042% they saved from the previous year. Looks like they subscribe to the "use it or lose it" philosophy as well.
You gave me one year's example where they spent their budget for a category that includes 20 things including football recruiting (or at least you can expect it is, nothing in the document says that).
So you did not demonstrate the point that you are trying to make. Basically, you are trying to make assumptions without specifics from a document not intended for the use you want. And in the end, it is in order to make a point not really exceedingly relevant.
People who poach late and bet on that uncertainty are rarely long-term successful coaches.
Whether or not they are ethical, most of them aren't very good.
