Perched high atop the list of hoops money makers is the University of Louisville, which had revenues of $23,500,000+. A distant second: North Carolina with revenues of $17.8 million +.
Which, if my arithmatic is correct, means that U of L hoops made almost $6 million — $5.7 mill — more than any other school in the land. (UK ranked 10th, at $14.9 million rounded up.)
Those are astounding numbers.
I’ve heard from several long time Cards fans already this morning. Their queries and plaints boil down to this: How come we’re going to have to pay so much more in the new arena for seats not nearly as good as the ones we’ve had for the decades we’ve supported the school and athletic program?
I wouldn’t be expecting any answers soon. If the answers are blowin’ in the wind, the wind be blowin’ in the other direction.
