We’ll start today with some good stuff from Jon Wilner of the San Jose Mercury-News breaking down the distribution of money from the Pac-10 conference to each school for the last three completed fiscal years.
As you can see, UW’s dropped a little bit from the 2007-08 and 2008-09 fiscal years to 2009-10. That’s probably because of having one fewer marquee non-conference game and a few more conference games that were limited to regional coverage. Rare, however, to see UW ninth on such a list, and given that the Huskies had a few more national games last season (such as the Thursday nighter against UCLA) I’d imagine the numbers for 2010-11 will be higher (and as Wilner notes, there will soon be equal sharing of that money, anyway).
