No television money worth noting. NCAAT Units bleeding off, including the ones we left behind. Whatever the methodology is that the WSJ-hired professor is using, a variable or two is bastardizing his results.

    The Forbes list, which we used to make all the time, looks more realistic: https://www.forbes.com/sites/chrissm.../#6dfaf1543225

    Note that Marquette is the only Big East team on the list now (at #19). Arkansas, NC State and Alabama? It's a lot to do with the TV money as Forbes calculates it (i.e. conference media deals plus NCAA distributions). Take a look at the pie chart down in the article:

    Revenue Sources Breakdown:

    - - Television* 33.7%
    - - Tickets 29.5%
    - - Alumni Contributions 21.6%
    - - Sponsorships 10.0%
    - - Other 5.2%

    * - Includes NCAA and conference distributions, per the article, which implies that NCAAT Unit monies flow through this item.

    So, in the modern era, TV revenue rules. Do you then have a venue that is fully supported by a strong fanbase and how is that venue configured for seat licensing, etc. Alumni contributions is the one we or any private school cannot win when pitted against a land grant P5 school that has in excess of 30,000 students and boatloads of alumni. Same for sponsorships, given the comparative base in fan support.
    Thanks. That was a really nice way of presenting it in a way that's easy to understand. Honestly, I would have thought Nike or other shoe companies alone would surpass 10% easily.

    Sure makes Mack's jump to the Cardinals easier to understand.
    ...he went up late, and I was already up there.

    I will say this, I thought about going up to the Dump for the SLU game on a Saturday this year, and the cheapest tickets I could find on the secondary market were like $75-80. For SLU. They do fill up that shitty arena no matter what.

    Marquette rents their place and look how high they are on the list. For that matter, everyone but X Butler and DP rent for most or all of their games.
