Don't call them "revenue" sports

Postby professorjackson » Mon Feb 04, 2013 7:02 pm

Just perusing the FY 2012 BGSU audited financial statement. Looks like football revenues were $1,978,502, while expenses were $5,132,624 for a loss of $3,154,122. Men's basketball lost $880,916, while hockey lost $1,059,182 and all other sports combined lost $5,367,477. That's, of course, before you throw in $11,819,248 in student activity fees and $425,104 in direct institutional support. Even after all that, intercollegiate athletics overspent by $457,936....http://www.auditor.state.oh.us/auditsea ... 2-Wood.pdf

In Greek mythology, the Titans were greater even than the gods. They ruled their universe with absolute power! Well that basketball court out there tonight, that's our universe. Let's rule it like Titans! (with apologies to coach boon)

pitiful. Average well under 20,000 -- closer maybe to 17000. Lowest attendance ever reported for a bowl game.

well that's kinda what i don't get. assuming 17 grand @ 20 per ticket? for 6 home games would be over 2 mil in revenue. thats says nothing for away gates concessions etc. 17000 hot dogs @4.00 per would be another 68000 per game? don't think you mistated the number...i'm just a numbers kinda guy. seems like gross revenues should be more? i'm sure there must be giveaways and such but still. just wondering out loud really. i see. only five home games not six. my estimated avg ticket price is probably high too.
