Huskies morning links: Attendance down across college football

The Huskies are practicing now inside Husky Stadium and will have their final media availability of the week afterward. We’ll have updates and videos from that shortly.

A few quick links before then:

TV rules in college football during 2014. But in many ways, the lifeblood of an athletic department remains selling football tickets.

It’s how you make money from parking, concessions and merchandise. It’s how you get alumni back on your campus to donate money. It’s how you build a fan base from a young age and on up. It’s how you create a brand within a community.

It’s also how you create a budget. In the Football Bowl Subdivision, ticket sales and donations (which are often tied to season tickets) remain the highest categories for generated revenues. For example, when Auburn’s athletic department reported to the NCAA a deficit of $865,994 for a 2013 fiscal year in which the football team had a 3-9 record, football tickets and football donations accounted for 51 percent of Auburn’s revenue.
