    Well in many cases the football program even factoring in the coaches salary produces a net positive income for the state, usually the football program and basketball program finance the rest of the athletic dept.

    It's ridiculous, but as PF13 points out, justified. College football is the 2nd most popular sport in the U.S (T.V viewership).

    More people watch the BCS national championship than the World Series, the NBA Championship, or the Stanley Cup. A typical college football saturday night game will destroy those sports as well for a regular season game.

    Also, if the Northeast didn't completely suck at college football, their highest paid employees would be football coaches as well. :D

    So basically state employees can be social goods who deserve to be compensated in line with their market value.

    You can argue the prestige is worth it.

    Well one of my kids had her tuition paid for by an athletic scholarship, the money came from profits generated by the basketball program which paid for the non revenue sports.

    Of course they GPA of her team was ~ 3.3 which raised up the cum GPA of the athletic program as a whole. The games on and off the field that people play.

    Unlike having the best hospitals and academic universities in the world, for which foreigners pay hundreds of thousands of dollars to jet over ........

    (not to mention, the LOCALS have higher life expectancies and incomes)

    But getting into the AP Top 20 trumps that?

    And those endowments are spent (about 2-5% per year).

    They have a huge effect on local economies.

    I don't think people realize the impact in the school itself and how many female sports scholarships these huge programs pay for ever since NCAA rules required it.

    I don't see a problem.......most big program coaches do a hell of alot more revenue generating than any governor

    the university of michigan football games get either $75 or $95 per ticket

    multiply that times 6 or 7.......oh yeah 107,000 per game....around $60,000,000 from football games ticket sales alone......
