Bowl Payout
Does anyone know if NIU received the typical bowl payout and did they make money based off how close and potentially inexpensive this trip was? With how bad the state of Illinois has been in, NIU could use whatever they can get. My guess is STF reallyyy wanted this bowl due to the cost savings.

RE: Bowl Payout
Doesn't all of the bowl money go to the MAC for redistribution throughout the conference?

Yes


I hope it's not an equal distribution. I would certainly hope that NIU would get a much bigger distribution than say Ball State.

At a minimum I hope that the school's expenses are covered before the revenue sharing kicks in. I know the MAC did that for NIU with the Orange Bowl.

RE: Bowl Payout
C'mon guys, nobody except the the very top P5 programs make money from a bowl appearance.
It's been documented that with a few exceptions, almost every school loses money. The only people truly making money is the bowl committee provided they have enough corporate sponsors.
For as much as everyone (myself included) is sick of the MAC's current administration, the help we got under the Orange Bowl scenario was an exception. Conferences typically take the bowl money and there is a formula where the league office gets two slices, the actual bowl participant school gets two slices, and everyone else gets a single slice; so it's essentially cutting up a pie into like 15 or 16 slices.

RE: Bowl Payout
With being able to bus to Detroit and a small payout, my guess is we broke even or came out a little ahead.

The MAC schools that don't make a bowl should get like half of what the bowl teams get.

Small payout ?? I was told this was a 1,900,000 payout ! The kids got three times the gear as the poinsettia bowl . I was told we turned down a couple warm weather destinations because the payout to Detroit was so much more ????

Unless something changed from previous bowl years, secondary tie-ins get less payout than if it was a Big ten team.
