College Football = Big Business

College sports has become Very Big Business. Texas, Florida, Georgia, Michigan, and Penn State each earn between $40 million and $70 million in profits a year, even after paying coaches multimillion-dollar salaries.

 

In most years, rights fees have accounted for about 85 percent of all NCAA revenue. In 2009-10, the media agreements constituted 86 percent of NCAA revenue. Most of the remaining 14 percent in 2009-10 came from championships (mostly ticket sales).

 

Overall annual revenue for college athletics programs was estimated for 2008-09 at about $10.6 billion. That includes about $5.6 billion in generated revenues, which is income from ticket sales, radio and television receipts, alumni contributions, guarantees, royalties and NCAA distributions. The remainder of the revenue is considered allocated revenue, which comes from student fees directly allocated to athletics, direct and indirect institutional support, and direct government support.

 

If the BCS bowl system was changed to a playoff system to determine  the national champion ,the income for College Football would increase significantly.
