NCAA revenue rankings

Discussion in 'Sports and News' started by Evil ... Thy name is Orville Redenbacher!!, May 9, 2013.

  1. Interesting...
    USA Today ranks the NCAA schools who brought in the highest revenues for the 2011-12 season. Texas topped the list with over $163 million, followed by Ohio State, Michigan, Alabama & Florida.

    Of the Top 40 schools, WVU and Kansas spent more than it took in.

    List does not seem to include private schools like Duke, ND and USC.

    I haven't looked at it yet, but I wouldn't be surprised if this was only for public schools.

    I'm guessing they asked the private schools to give up the information and some did and some didn't.

    No Duke, no Stanford, no Notre Dame, no USC, no Northwestern, no Vanderbilt...

    Actually there's none that I see. List appears to be solely public schools, which obviously makes it highly incomplete.

    The endowments at Stanford, Duke and Northwestern (I suspect the others, too), would allow them to purchase the 49ers if they REALLY wanted to win. Their balance sheet statements are not a reflection of their actual financial situation.

    I don't know how you put out a list like that without explaining the omission of those schools.

    No Miami, no Syracuse, no Marquette, no DePaul, no BYU...

    Epic fail for USA Today for failing to point out the schools that didn't participate.

    I don't blame them for not having the information. Private schools don't have to release that kind of information, so why would they?

    But you can't put out a list like that without explaining why at least 3-4 schools that I would assume to be in the top 20 (Stanford, ND, Duke, Miami...)

    All they had to do was state that this was a list of public schools only. How hard was that? Too hard, apparently.

    Fail by Evil also for bringing it to the board without proper qualifications. ;)

    BC also missing and pretty much every school in the new Big East.

  10. I'll be in Shame Closet until further notice.

    You need to read a weeks worth of USA Today's while you're in there.
