Football Season is Back
Saturdays and Sundays finally feel right again.
September 3, 2019
For the vast majority of college football fans, their school's season began this past Saturday. A lot of soon-to-be-mid-level-office-managers put their bodies on the line for the sake of our entertainment; how thoughtful of those young men. Despite not paying the players (that's a whole 'nother story), college football is big business.
Last year, the top 20 programs made $925 million in profits. Texas brought in the most money with $92 million (thanks to their TV rights), followed by Tennessee at $70 million, and LSU at $58 million. South Carolina #20 on the list with profits of $28 million. The biggest surprise? Clemson isn't on the list.
