    FALSE. Not all programs are cash flow positive.

    I shouldn't have said most. Look at JLaw's post.

    The point still stands that there aren't a ton of schools flush with football cash to throw at a bunch of players. Only the top dogs have huge profits.

      I'm actually surprised any team loses money in football.

        of course its business as usual. the really great ones have always received benifits. cars, bills paid, extra scholarship money.. its been going on forever.

          A very interesting piece that I think kind of explains why so many people believe the current system is less than desirable for everyone:

          Basically, major sports revenue is growing significantly faster than college tuition, yet the number of scholarships is not increasing nor is the value of scholarships increasing at a comparable rate. I'm not suggesting they be paid, but that changes to the limits of scholarships be amended.
