    It makes our director's cup ranking all the more impressive.

    Re: USA TODAY Sports' College Athletics Finances

    Some interesting items in there. Specifically, Nebraska is part of the Big 10 and Colorado is part of the Big 12.

    For NU: " In Big 12 Conference until 2010-11"
    For CU: " Moved to the PAC-12 in 2011-12."

    NU and CU revenues both jumped $10m the year they moved.

    I find it interesting that not only does Texas outspend Ohio State by $11 million, they have 16 fewer varsity sports (20 versus 36) to spend it on.

    I did not realize Iowa would be 12th in revenue and expense. What are they spending all that money on?

    Re: USA TODAY Sports' College Athletics Finances

    Using football and basketball wins, I wonder who's getting the most bang for their buck?

    (This is a cue for some really bored person to figure it out) thanks :)

    This! Pretty amazing that we rank that high, in how few sports we participate in. Money wisely spent.

    Re: USA TODAY Sports' College Athletics Finances

    In all honesty I don't get it.

    EIU additional sports that ISU does not have are the following

    Men's
    Baseball
    Gymnastics
    Swimming & Diving
    Tennis

    Women's
    Field Hockey
    Rowing

    I understand they probably spend more on Football than we do, but seriously those six sports and additional money on football make up a gap in expenses of $39.5 million. No wonder all of them at HawkNation are scared the B12 won't just survive but thrive. If that happens and ISU can spend $60M a year on sports, the Hawkeyes will be back page news. In all honesty if I was an EIU supporter I would be a little embarrassed.

    Except no one really cares about the Director's Cup. The only two sports that really matter are football and men's basketball.

    I suspect that there are lots of "accounting tricks" being used here, so that things that might be counted for one school aren't counted the same way for another.
