    It's incredible that Texas makes almost 70 million profit in football revenue

    It would shock me too... but I live in Austin now. You can't live here and be shocked by that number. Texas is a juggernaut in the mythical sense of the word.

    But, but, but I thought the Big 12 is doomed. Tornado Man? Paging Tornado Man...

    It is doomed Al. Don't you know that Texas signing a huge contract for basically something no one else will pay for is just the beginning of them going independent?

    Here's my question; what's up w/ Illinois? Great school with a huge state population. They should not be so low on the B10 list. Man, get it together Illinois.

    Re: Interesting Article on Big 12 Revenue splits

    An even split would be more of a 'feel good' for the conference. Not to mention that everyone says that ISU can do a lot more with a smaller amount of extra money. How handy would $1.2MM be? All assistant coaches at ISU could get a decent annual raise with that...

    #1 Illinois has historically been a difficult school to get accepted in to, so Chicago area people who wanted to go to a Big 10 school went to Iowa, and to a lessor degree Wisconsin or Indiana.

    #2 Illinois competes with Notre Dame and Chicago professional teams for non-alumni entertainment dollars, and is the outlier in distance for the Chicago population. It's very rare to hear a non-alum saying they are going to an Illinois football game, however I know many non-alums who go to Notre Dame games annually.

    How is Wisconsin's draw less than Iowa's? They have a bigger stadium for football, actually have people show up for basketball, and have a very popular hockey program.

    Re: Interesting Article on Big 12 Revenue splits

    From the article...

    If you still aren't convinced, check out the numbers from the Big Ten, which is widely known to distribute its TV revenue equally. As you'll see, there are still a huge disparities between the schools at the top, and those that aren't.
    Whether everyone is in agreement on the unequal revenue distribution or not, the numbers show it doesn't create that big of a disparity. At least not a disparity that creates a distinct advantage for one team or another.
    So, while certain schools are mildly affected by the Big 12's distribution model, its not near the negative argument against the Big 12 that some make it out to be.
    Nice blog! Of course, these facts should be old news to CF readers, since they have been posted here numerous times over the past year or so. Unfortunately, such rational things tend to get lost amongst the voluminous ranting of the Big Ten trolls/worshippers...

    I think you're referring to the profit page? I could be wrong but I think Wisconsin has a few more sports than Iowa. Someone should check that cuz I could be spreading false information.

    Just means Wisconsin is spending more of their money than Iowa is.

    Re: Interesting Article on Big 12 Revenue splits

    No conference will ever have revenue that is even amongst all teams unless donations to each athletic department begin to get split up. This is why Texas, OU and the like should not need the 'extra revenue' from additional TV appearances. Teams like ISU could benefit a lot from the extra $1.2MM and could increase the SOS of Texas and OU if it comes down to that for a BCS Bowl/title berth.
