You’ve got to be kidding. huh huh huh 

Since the rest of the country was slacking off watching football, I guess it was up to the Wolverine’s to keep the economy moving forward.  Afraid I didn’t have time to watch the game.  If it was 28 zip at the half, I’m glad I didn’t watch it!  I really hate the lopsided games ; it just screams that the BCS is broken.

I wonder why...


"Schools in the Southeastern Conference are the biggest athletic spenders, and have the widest gap between school spending and sports spending. Median athletic spending, per athlete, was $163,931 in the SEC in 2010; the median academic spending, per student, that year was $13,390. So on a per capita basis, SEC schools spent 12.2 times as much on sports than on academics (note: all the data, throughout the study, are for public institutions only). That’s the largest gap among the so-called “BCS ” conferences, which include the SEC, Big 12, Pac-10 (now the Pac-12), Big East, Big Ten and Big East. The Big East has the smallest gap. Spending per athlete in 2010 was $91,936; that was 6.7 times more than academic spending per student."

Sundog,
If it was all about who spends the most money, the Yankees would win the World Series every year!

Besides, I think just looking at "spending" can be misleading.  The article you reference makes it appear that this is a bad thing and that academics is suffering for sport.  At LSU I know just the opposite to be true, and I would venture to guess the same holds true for many, possibly the majority of SEC schools.

While LSU is a public University, ZERO, public money goes to the football program, it's totally self sufficient.  As a matter of fact, I'm pretty sure it carries every other athletic program on campus and in most, if not all years, makes a financial contribution to the academic portion of the university.

So, it's really not about how much they spend, but more about the net affect.

This is from 2010, a little dated.  Nice profit margins.  It looks to me that investing in the athletes paid off nicely for these schools...and "regular" students.  Why hey, lookie there...Michigan made it in the top twelve.  Looks to be heavily weight with SEC teams...including the 2012 National Champions...you know, the one that beat the crap out of Notre Dame (42-14)....and Michigan (41-14).  I'd bet that Alabama's profit margin has increased substantially since 2010.  Football is very good for these schools and students in regards to funding.  You're living in a liberal amount of funny smoke and mirrors if you think otherwise.

HELLO.  Who has won more WS than any other team, by far?  The Yankees.

Regarding the spending, 12:2 versus 6:1, that’s almost exactly duhble.  Let me put that into terms “ya’ll” can understand.  Shucks, that’s agin’ as much.  So now you're 2 and 2 versus Michigan and the only thing worse than a sore loser is, well, I suspect you know.
 
And spare me the “your living…” remarks until after you get a clue.
