There is something odd about the gap between revenue and expenses at WVU. Most other schools showing 20million "profit" have much higher budgets overall.

I think a lot of schools have donations go to foundations then the foundation releases only the money needed to the school. That is why so many are nearly identical on revenue/expense.

historically WVU has always been in the black or extremely close to it. I'm assuming the huge bump in revenue comes mostly from TV money. Things are going very well at WVU right now.

Better put some of that money back. The futures looking bleak for The Big 12.
Couldn't happen to a better bunch.

The ACC has been a financial bonanza for UofL. We make more money than every program in The PAC, every program in The Big 12 except Texas and Oklahoma. We would place 8th in The Big 10 and 11th in The SEC.

Not to shabby but we can do better.

If you guys end up "like Jerry's World"----!!!! The home of the Cowboys and a million other events, I'll be amazed. A college football stadium in Louisville that equals one of the most popular venues in the world right now.

Sounds like a question you should ask on a Washington State message board. You can find half a dozen of them by asking Google.

Or, you could just wait for someone on this board who has never been within 1,000 miles of there in his life, and couldn't find the place on a map, to answer your question. 07-coffee3

Yeah, I spent the better part of a year in the Seattle area, but I have no idea where Washington State is... Is it near Idaho?

There might be fewer people within 200 miles of Wazzu than any other P5 school, except maybe the other school where Mike Leach was the head football coach.

Field level suites....a design copied from Cowboy Stadium. There will be 10 along what is the now the north end of the stadium in Louisville. They are already soldout as are most of the premium seats in the expansion. The overall design of the end zone was copied from Seattle's Centurylink Field.








Article is a little dated; from August 2015, but quote tells the story....

http://www.kyforward.com/louisville-athl...s-stadium/


Jurich said he and his staff have been working on plans to enlarge the stadium for about three years. He said UofL stole some of the design ideas from AT&T Stadium in Dallas, home of the NFL’s Dallas Cowboys, and Seattle’s CenturyLink Field, where the Seattle Seahawks play.


“The challenge was the end zone part because we wanted to do it great,” Jurich said. “This is really the home for all of our (football) athletes and coaches, so we wanted to make sure we just didn’t throw things up. “So we looked at a lot of places. There’s probably a lot of Seattle in it and a little bit of the Dallas stadium in it.


“There’s going to be a lot of things incorporated (from AT&T Stadium) because they do it right down there, there’s no question about it. The Seattle stadium is spectacular also, so we kind of stole from those two areas.”

If the end result goes like the plan, that would make it one of the best football stadiums in college or the NFL. Super Bowl quality worthy.

Just learned more than I ever wanted to learn about them. Tiny stadium. Tiny town surrounded by nothing. University of Idaho a few miles away. While looking a hundred mile in each direction, google street view looks like a 100 year drought was brought onto the old Windows screensaver grassland.

They have collected a whopping $27,359 in ticket sales the 4 years they have been in the WAC (there were no records kept for 2014-15). But to top that off it has been 5 years since they last received a donation for athletics; $0 in each of the last four years.

Still 2010-11 was their peak year. $56 in tickets and $18 in donations.

SoCalBobcat78 assures however that this is a healthy and well supported D-I program.

There is something odd about the gap between revenue and expenses at WVU. Most other schools showing 20million "profit" have much higher budgets overall.

I think a lot of schools have donations go to foundations then the foundation releases only the money needed to the school. That is why so many are nearly identical on revenue/expense.

historically WVU has always been in the black or extremely close to it. I'm assuming the huge bump in revenue comes mostly from TV money. Things are going very well at WVU right now.
It looks like things are going well.

There was a large bump in donations and rights. It looks like WVU thinks these are one-time occurances or they would be spending them. Maybe there was a capital drive and naming rights for a project being built in FY17.

Most athletic departments would have a hard time increasing donations 30% just to show a 20million profit.

Athletic revenue from all schools (except military), FY2015-16

The data linked in the OP is for FY15-16, not FY16-17. I don't think that data has come out yet, since the FY just finished.

I think I might just chip in a dollar so I can say I'm the leading donor for a D1 athletic program.
