Granted. But they have been a good, not great, college team. I'm suprised they pull that kind of revenue over a team that was (and I do mean WAS) considered the top tier of college football for so long.*

Nebraska has money, but I think the Texas schools get contributions from big whigs like the Bush family.

Ahhh Notre Dame. It's nice to see us #1 in something right now. Too bad it's nothing important for the fans.

South Carolina at #12 surprises me......were they ever good before Spurrier? And what the hell have they done recently?

Alabama and Auburn both in the top ten is also surprising considering Alabama is one of the poorest states in the country.

How were these rankings determined?

"Unlike the other programs on our list, Notre Dame's athletic department operates under the umbrella of the university and is not run as its own distinct entity. As a result, a much higher share of profits are retained by university for academic use."

Well, that's a great reason to support Irish sports. Why don't the other programs on the list do that?
