At a time when most college sports corruption cases are about athletes, Taylor Branch reveals that the big money is being harvested by the universities. “In 2010, despite the faltering economy, a single college athletic league, the football-crazed Southeastern Conference (SEC), became the first to crack the billion-dollar barrier in athletic receipts. The Big Ten pursued closely at $905 million. That money comes from a combination of ticket sales, concession sales, merchandise, licensing fees, and other sources—but the great bulk of it comes from television contracts.”
Looks like you haven't made a choice yet.
