Revenue Rankings 16-17
The top seven schools for profits
Georgia, Alabama, Notre Dame, Texas, Auburn, Washington and Syracuse.

Tool to look up your school.

Pretty good detailed look at how the numbers breakdown at Cuse for an example

Just makes you wonder why the Cuse cannot get to heights in FB like the others in the top seven. Guess location.

I looked up Notre Dame's numbers.

ND has a little over $26 million dollar a year athletic department profit/surplus (which goes to the academic side of the university), even without a mega Big Ten or SEC conference television deal.

Some of the numbers look weird. E.g., they have FSU at $144 million. That's top-level SEC territory. To my knowledge, FSU has never had revenue of more than about $115m in a year.

A report from June, 2017 says their 2016-2017 revenue was $113.7m:

The data in the OPs link is referring to this Department of Education database. You can get more detail at the link above for any school. The problem is that there isn't a whole lot of rigor around this type of reporting, if I'm looking at the database correctly there isn't a single school that reports a loss on athletics and the vast majority of the respondents have total revenue = total expenses.

RE: Revenue Rankings 16-17
It should be noted that the DoE numbers do not measure revenues by source. So a loan or payment from the Institution to the Athletic Department, or student fees are lumped in with gate and TV as generic revenue. So a $12M Football budget as some G5 school will show $12M in revenue, even if actual gate and other revenue was just $4M. Also a huge cots of programs is hidden under "no specific sport" category. To get a WAG of the actual costs of a sport, I like to take the percentage of scholarship athletes. So if a School has 240 and 80 are Football, I apply 1/3rd of the "no specific sport" overhead to them. Mind you it's low estimate, as lower socioeconomic students eat up much more of the support costs. Also Football has a huge facilities costs that is often hidden in that general "no specif" sport category.

All I'm trying to say is not all costs are in the buckets we'd like them to be in to get a real costs and revenue picture. But believe me, 80% of the schools have that breakdown for executive eyes only.

Location and they really don't have a ton of the frivolous BS most of the really big FB schools spend on wowing and spoiling the recruits and players.

RE: Revenue Rankings 16-17
A small liberal art school in my city makes $10 million in revenue from athletics? They are division 2. They have no football team, only a basketball team along with 20 other sports such as golf, rowing, etc. I don't buy these numbers.

What school? Maybe a big part of the revenue is from student fees
