I dont know if others can or cannot afford it......


I have heard Bama spends $50million a year (give or take) for football which is about 30% of their yearly revenue. Yes football brings in 100+million a year accounting for nearly 60% of their revenue. At the same time, Bama doesn't pay the city of the police used during game days (other schools do end up paying and it isn't cheap).

By comparison, mens ball spends 5 million and women's bball spends 3 million. All other sports get about 17-18million a year. Think about it, the FB coaches make collectively anywhere between 15-20 million a year depending on bonuses etc!!!

I don't even know how Bama complies with T9.....let alone if other programs can spend like that.....
