Interesting article. TCU is #24 at $52M. That could have been us had we had our stuff together. And yes I realize the B12 is faltering, but those schools are still raking in the cash. Much more so than us anyway. A&M #13 at $73.7 and of course the Whorns are #1 by a whopping margin at $127.5M. They made a PROFIT of $97.2M for the 2015-16 fiscal year. Unreal
Jim, thanks for posting. When we were jilted by the Big 12 last year I was as upset as anyone. They truly let the air out of balloon. And then when herman started flirting with LSU, and then the evil empire, well, it made for a bad year.
That said, I still say we would jump at the chance to join the Big 12 today if they offered. Turning down that kind of money would be totally stupid.
Besides we would get the chance to take our frustrations out on them!
