    A lot of stuff to get to today. Some thoughts on Norm Stewart, Tommy Tuberville, the Cap City League, recruiting and more.

    “I think there is some concern,” Stewart recently told the Des Moines Register. “Financially, when there is so many inequalities, you may have difficulty maintaining that.”

    “Tom Osborne just beat everybody to the draw. The good-looking girl just winked at the other guys, but the quarterback won the battle.”
    Here's what's interesting when talking about conference revenue "inequalities". I can't figure out how to easily do formatted tables with the editor here, so take a look at the The Line 14 Grand Total Revenues 2008-2009 in the enclosed Excel screen shot. The data is compiled from Equity in Athletics Data Analysis Cutting Tool Website.

    The disparity between the average revenue of the top for teams and the bottom team is larger in the Big Ten than it is in the Big 12. Each conference has a revenue "outlier" (outside one standard deviation of the average) at the top. The Big Ten even has an "outlier" at the bottom of the conference. If you throw out that top outlier, and then take the average revenue of the next four teams, that revenue disparity between the top and bottom in the Big Ten becomes even larger.

    The Big Ten is top heavy with money. Even with the additional TV revenue, NU is going to be number 5 in the Big Ten.

    Conference revenue distribution doesn't fix revenue disparity. Revenue disparity primarily results because of athletic donations and other revenue sources...some schools are just better at getting their fanbase to pony up.

    Norm and Tommy, there's nothing the Big 12 can really do to close the revenue disparity between your schools and Texas/OU, just like there is nothing the Big Ten can do to close the revenue gap between OhSU/Michigan/Penn State and NW/Illinois/Indiana/Purdue.

    On another note, it's quite baffling how low Illinois' revenue is for the size of the school.
