College Football's Most ProfitableI have a new piece over on Smarty Cents explaining how college football programs generate revenue and how it’s all spent. Here’s a sneak peek at the Top 10 most profitable programs (although it’s not really profit since they’re nonprofits, it’s net revenue, but that doesn’t really roll off the tongue)….

  1. Texas
  2. Michigan
  3. Georgia
  4. Florida
  5. LSU
  6. Alabama
  7. Notre Dame
  8. Oklahoma
  9. Auburn
  10. Ohio State

For the numbers and a more detailed breakdown, check out my piece on Smarty Cents. I’ll have more posts here on related topics in the near future!
