    ISU in Wall St Journal Article "College Athletics Could Die! or Not"

    CY with the Flag caught my eye - article seems like a reach. "Then there are schools like Iowa State. The Cyclones boast the prestige and TV-rights contract of the Big 12 Conference. But they have a modest stadium (55,000 capacity) in Ames, population 59,000. Of Iowa State's $55 million in 2012 athletic revenue, roughly $26 million came from TV rights. Half of that would gouge 24% of revenue from an athletic department that runs on a break-even basis. Through a spokesman, Iowa State athletic director Jamie Pollard declined to comment until the O'Bannon case is adjudicated."The O'Bannon Case—The NCAA Worst-Case Scenario Barely Bruises Ohio State While Flattening Iowa State - WSJ.comClose

    Wait a minute, I thought Ohio State and Iowa State were the same school?

    I don't know why they always single us out. It isn't like we have poor attendance like some schools...

    I wish the NCAA wouldn't regulate schools to have so many sports. I'd have no issue doing away with golf, track/field and cross country.

    You mean three sports our school just happens to consistently do well in?

    I would imagine you're in the minority.

    I think we are singled out because we are an example of a successful program where there's not much more we can realistically do (with our current fan base/franchise) that would make a significant financial impact without the TV money that our current league and NCAA affiliation can provide. This can change with more wins and thus fans and donors (SEZ) but I don't want to get left behind now.
