Fuckin duke. That's why no one likes them.
Surprised Oklahoma State has that big of a circle.
Ever hear of this guy?
Yeah, Oklahoma State proves that if you throw enough money at a program, you can make it better. coughdangilbertcougheliboradcough
Yeah right, Georgetown is exactly even

As an Oklahoma State grad, I feel obligated to point out that they did have a couple of fairly recent final fours before the T. Boone zilly dollars arrived. That said, the new basketball facilities are a ridiculous step up from what was prevously available at Gallagher-Iba.
BTW - can someone explain where all of Louisville's revenue is coming from? I was surprised to see them more than double MSU's revenue and lead Duke by a huge margin.
I know they play in the Yum Yum KFC Dome or something, maybe they get tons of cash from them? They also have a huge stadium I think.
And massive bourbon and vodka bars at the stadium
This aspect is something that will make conference expansion even more interesting. The Big East started allowing alcohol to be served at games a few years ago, and now that those same schools are expanding into other conferences, I am very curious to see what happens. It wouldn't surprise me to see all conferences adapting it soon, however I also wouldn't be surprised if the Big Ten never did.
The West is looking poor.
Or not, they are pretty much the same as 15 years ago, before the big money was coming in. More like Texas or Tenn. football you can pour a ton of money and reap nothing.

Agree -- I think the revenue disparity is pretty amazing.
I also am surprised that there is a pretty big variation in what top programs spend on their teams. Duke is spending 60% more than we are.
Did you say bourbon?
