How much of an outlier is K-State's athletic "profit" this year? Look at the top of the graph... Related link: Charting the Revenues and Profits of College Athletics
I know all but $5 million of that "profit" is misleading because it represents uncollected donations for the BTF and WSC, but it's still really impressive to see K-State listed among schools whose stadiums seat around 100,000 and generate massive profit. For an athletic director, this is like making the Final Four or reaching a BCS game. And it's why we probably won't have to worry about John Currie running off coaches in about two years.
Looks like we're getting a new basketball court in Bramlage Coliseum, hopefully one that says "K-State." Thanks, ADJC!
