Nick Saban is already deep in thought about his football team’s prospects this year of repeating as national champions.
What may not be fully appreciated by fans is that the ‘Bama football program brings in about 11% of the total revenue for the entire school, according to Wall Street Journal report. Revenue is very important in the era of the College Bubble.
So whether you love ‘Bama, Ohio State, LSU, Notre Dame, Stanford, or Cal: does football help your institution? Or as in the case of Penn State, is there too high price to pay?
Does ‘Bama football benefit the academic mission of the school? Does your team’s football program enhance its academic reputation, providing more money for scholarships, tutors and merit aid?
