I am happy to FINALLY report that the updated 2007-2008 US Dept of ED college athletics financial records have just been released for selected but not all schools.Hopefully all school records will be updated soon.

Various news organizations(like BB state) and others will eventually take this data and compile it into interesting formats and articles however this link(follow the instructions) is just to the raw data at http://ope.ed.gov/athletics

If I get some free time in the next few days I may go thru the numbers myself.
In any event,those who like this kind of data can enjoy.

Thanks
Freaked

PS: I made a cursory check of selected financial data this afternoon.Although there are many BCS schools with updated data none of the 6 BCS conferences "currently" has the data from "all" of it's schools updated.Hopefully this will be accomplished soon.

Article reporting that "the mtn" received it's highest tv ratings ever for the recent UTAH/BYU tilt.The question is whether this will translate into more cable and satellite subscribers in the future.

Followup to above article regarding Brian Kelly forcing UC to expand Nippert Stadium with blog article showing possible architectural renderings for the improved Nippert Stadium at http://www.urbancincy.com/2008/12/can-nippert-stadium-really-be-expanded.html

Also,UCONN MB thread discussion of how the proposed Nippert expansion would likely cause the existing UCONN FB stadium to be the smallest in the BE.
Perhaps Randy Edsall could threaten to leave unless Rentchler Field is also expanded?Link at http://forums.scout.com/mb.aspx?S=342&F=2873&T=3523335&P=1

The follow-up comments to the Nippert expansion proposal discuss the obvious alternative - sharing the Bengals NFL Stadium (Paul Brown stadium) - which, I assume is used for a whopping 10 Bengals games / year.

I believe Cincy and OSU have discussed OOC play, where Cincy would host their home game at Paul Brown.

Currently NFL stadiums are shared elsewhere:
Pitt - Heinz Field (Steelers)
USF - Raymond James Field (Bucs)
Temple - Lincoln Financial Field (Eagles)
Florida - Georgia "thingytail party" - Alltel (Jacksonville Jaguars)
OU - Texas "Red River Rivalry" - moving from Cotton Bowl to new Cowboys stadium
Army - Navy - location moves around a bit, but I believe it is typically in Philadelphia Lincoln Financial Field (Eagles) and Meadowlands (Giants Stadium), if memory serves.
Missouri - Illinois - Edward Jones Dome (Rams)
Notre Dame's proposed games vs. Rutgers and UConn - Meadowlands Giants Stadium / Foxboro Gillette Stadium (Patriots)
I think Miami (the "U") now plays in the Dolphins Stadium, since the Orange Bowl is being demolished.

undoubtedly there are other examples...



Further up this thread, read all about how Rutgers is taking a financial beating over their under-funded stadium expansion.

This kind of spending may fly at an SEC school like Alabama, where you have hundreds of thousands of rabid alumni, and a college stadium expansion to 100,000 is realistic.

For a smaller school (albeit in a BCS conference) like Cincinnati or UConn, fiscal sensibility would seem to dictate investigating use of existing facilities in the same metro area....

Followup from my post in reply#1142 in this thread regarding updated 2007-2008 US Dept of Ed college athletics financial data.

Although not all of the schools updated data has been released yet I found a few tidbits.

Regarding the two BCS schools in Pennslyvania;

Pittsburgh shows athletic department revenue increasing from $37.466 million to $39.742 million from 2006-2007 to 2007-2008.
Their expenses rose to $39.742 million from $37.466 million in that period.

Penn State is shown with an increase in athletic department revenue from $76.328 million to $91.570 million in the same time frame. That is an increase of close to 20%.2007-2008 was the first year of the BTN network.Their expenses went from $71.974 million to $79.275 million year over year.

Also,the top 3 schools in 2006-2007 athletic revenue were;
1.Ohio State-$109.382 million,
2.Florida-$107.781 million,and
3.Texas-$105.049 million.

Of just those schools,Florida's revenue fell in 2007-2008 to $106.031 million.

Ohio State increased their revenues to $117.954 million.

However,Texas saw it's 2007-2008 revenue climb to $120.288 million.

Once the remainder of the data has been released a full listing will be possible.

Once I find more interesting nuggets I will post them.

Thanks
Freaked
