Football Bowl Subdivision Revenue Per School

The Orlando Sentinel (slowly becoming my favorite online newspaper with new additions like Phil Steele) has just released a chart that ranks all Football Bowl Subdivision schools by the total revenue they took in during the 2007-08 reporting year.

'These revenues include generated revenue (such as proceeds from ticket sales and sponsorships) and allocated revenue (such as tuition waivers, money from student fees and direct institutional support.)'

As the blog post pointed out, you'll find that there are good reasons why you see stadium expansions every year and you'll find that it's clearly, clearly in your best interest to be part of the BCS. I believe that TCU was the highest non-BCS school in the chart - at 57th with over $43,000,000 in revenue.
