We all know you make all that money because you bamboozled your city on the bball arena.

You'd be surprised how much money you make when you average over 20,000 per night vs only getting about 10k

Louisville is #3 in bball attendance. 396,333 people attended 19 games. West Virginia was #39 with only 158,750 attending 15 games. You seriously want to question revenue generated? Lol

Chicago State's operating budget of 76 million for their entire university is smaller than athletic budgets at 50 Division 1 schools (including UConn).

UMass #70 in public universities and tops 40 Million in revenues and expenses despite have two terrible years in all three major revenue sports: football, basketball, and hockey.

Quote:UMass' total athletics revenue for 2016 came in at $42,350,911, and increase of $5,838-474 over their 2015 revenue total. However the athletic department expenses also increased, checking in at $42,792,280 for 2016. That expense number is an increase of $5,894,905 over their 2015 expenses, which registered at $36,897,375.

All told, the UMass athletic department ran a deficit of -$441,369 in the 2016 athletic year.

In 2015 UMass also ran a deficit in the athletic department of -$384,938, however in 2014 the athletic department operated at a surplus of $400,676. The 2016 numbers are commensurate with the range that UMass has traditionally fallen in, both deficit and surplus, since their move up from FCS to FBS in 2011.

2016 is the first year where UMass' revenues and expenses have both come in above $40,000,000.

Never ceases to amaze me how people want to pretend that college athletic departments should be treated like for-profit businesses, simply because it isn't a part of the core education mission.

Neither are the IT operations, which cost major universities tens of millions per year, perhaps if not more than that.

Well, athletics should be run so as to generate more revenue than it spends, so that rather than draining academic funds, it contributes to academics by funding scholarships for non-athletes, helping to build laboratories and libraries, etc.

That actually does happen at some places. 07-coffee3

RE: Newest USA Today College Athletic Spending Spreadsheet
Yeah, a couple. Most of the other 1000+ colleges and universities who spend their own money to have an athletic dept are just fine with spending their money to have an athletic dept.

Students demand it, and it creates many benefits, a lot of which can't be quantified.


Your opinion is perfectly valid, but extremely unpopular and won't become anything close to a prevailing viewpoint any time soon. College athletics, "subsidized" as it is, is here to stay.
