Well, I actually was just doing a little reading and not really intending to post another blog tonight. But I saw enough interesting stuff that I figured what the heck, so here we go. …

— Some really interesting stuff here in a breakdown of the finances of athletic departments in the Pac-10 by Forbes magazine. Note that all these numbers are based on the 2009-10 fiscal year, so they encompass the 2009 football season. I usually try to pass along the UW numbers each year, but this gives a good perspective comparing everyone in the conference.

As you can read, UW led the Pac-10 in football revenue at $33.9 million (and again, this is based on 2009), a number that you’d imagine went up in 2010 (I’ll try to check soon and pass that on). UW spent $19.2 million on football, so its profit on football was a Pac-10 high $14.7 million. And that helped give UW a total athletic department profit of $2.3 million, according to Forbes’ numbers.

— Here’s the latest from The Oregonian on the Oregon-scouting service investigation and from ESPN.com and from Ted Miller on the ESPN.com Pac-12 blog.

— Speaking of college football and money, The Oregonian also reports that the Ducks didn’t get a windfall from advancing to the BCS title game.

Miller with a good breakdown of Utah as it prepares for its first spring practice as a member of the Pac-12. Utah hosts UW on Oct. 1 in what will be its first Pac-12 home game.

All for now.
