    Florida State is a joke. We already know that nine SEC teams had to have made more than Miami, because Kentucky and South Carolina are a part of that list; Miami isn't. I wonder how many more SEC teams are ahead of them.

    This is athletic department revenue (all sports), not strictly football revenue. What should easily give this away is UK being 24th. Do you think UK's football program makes $86M?

    If I'm not mistaken, football and basketball are by far the two most profitable sports in collegiate athletics. The fact that Miami is nowhere to be found is ridiculous.

    Also, FSU is competing for a national title this season, and is generally a pretty good basketball team that competes for a spot in the NCAA tourney every year. In fact, Miami has also been pretty solid on the hardwood.

    Wisconsin was no. 2 on the list. That was the biggest surprise to me. More money than any SEC school, more money than either Michigan OR Ohio State?! Wow!!

    Why is it ridiculous? Other than Notre Dame (which has its own TV contract) Miami has a fraction of the enrollment of virtually if not all of the other schools in that list, which means a proportionately small alumni base as well. Where's the money supposed to come from?

    Sometimes we let our bias outweigh our business sense. It's not a function of whether you're good, but of your economic buying power and Miami's is relatively very small.
