Interesting stuff in USA Today this morning examining the finances of college athletic departments for the 2009-10 academic year.
The story includes a chart that details the 22 athletic departments that brought in more revenue than they spent in 2009-10, with UW on the list at No. 22, earning a profit of $211,297.
An obvious question is how UW projects for the 2010-11 year and I’ll check on that, though I would imagine it would likely have an even better outlook given the football team’s success last year (the added ESPN/ABC exposures, primarily).
Here are some more thoughts on that story from the Business of College Sports.
