Where are Grambling, Southern, Jackson State?  I mean, they do have those million dollar games don't they?  I know, where is NCCU? :shrug:  We have to do better.

How bout that highway I 85 corridor of Elon, A&T, Wofford and Furman. Maybe they should start their own FCS Super Conference! Less travel and high revenue!

Extremely surprised to see that AAMU out earned NCAT.

Not sure why....AAMU does very well at home and the MCC is a major cash/revenue generating game for both participants.

Look at A&M. Man, ya'll are giving coach Maynor some money for his program. In a year or so, they will be the best team in HBCU. I'm making that prediction now.

They are about 2 years away. They need to get better on the defense end. But they are competing with the top teams in the conference

That's not good enough for Maynor.

This is very interesting. No other MEAC or Big South teams made the top 25 either. I wish we could see more reporting data to explain the results. I'm sure "football specific" giving and sponsorship plays a big role for many of these schools.

Compare these numbers to the student fees for each school on the list.  :tiptoe:

Dissecting those numbers will always tell the complete truth.  One can earn more than others, but if they end up spending more than they earn, what good is it to brag about giving all your earnings to others with nothing to spare???

While at WSSU, he took a lot less MONEY than that and made it to the national championship game. However, like Professor said, he needs a little more defense. He should hire Boulware, his former defensive coordinator at WSSU, for that.

I think a lot of money for Southern eg the bayou classic goes into the general fund not to the football team

I just would have thought that FAMU with sellout crowds, playing Southern at home along with the Florida Classic they would’ve been on the list.

Also, our student fees are not quite as high as some FCS programs, which is probably a large chunk of some schools earnings.

Piyush 'Bobby' Jindal damn near turn the State's public institutions of higher learning into operating like private schools.  I think most public schools in Louisiana only get 20% support from the State, which should be around 50% to 60%.  Governor John bel Edwards is in the process of trying to reverse that trend, but he is fighting a Republican control legislation.

You can spin numbers to say what you want. Counting student fees as revenue is ridiculous. Those fees should be used for other student functions as well. I can't understand why schools want to live in neighborhoods they can't afford. They will always look like they don't belong there. Never competitive.

A great deal of DI programs used student fees to support athletic programs.  Pretty much the only programs that don't need to are the Power 5 Conference schools.  I'm sure there are a lot of DII and lower level programs that collect student fees to support athletic programs, but their finances are not as scrutinized as much as DI programs and it is rarely publicized on how much they collect.  From news coverage, I know for a fact that the school in my hometown (LSUA) collects student fees to support its athletics and they are a NAIA program.  Therefore, folks from DII programs on here can stop acting like that DI HBCUs are the only ones trying to be more than what they are.

 JAQ89, Its not being more than what they are, but being more than 55 imagines himself or anything associated  to be.  Your reply was on point.

Also, I'm not sure if NAIA SUNO was assessing student fees to support their now defunct athletic programs.  I believe they were solely using monies allocated to them by the Southern University System to support their athletics, which is why it was so easy for SUNO's Chancellor to shutdown the school's athletic programs due to its accreditation being placed on probation due to finance.  IMO, students at SUNO should vote on student fees to support its athletic programs again with a small percentage (around 10% to 15%) going to SUBR's athletic programs.  I do believe LSU's main campus in Baton Rouge receives a small percentage of fee collection from each of its branch campuses, such as LSUA, which is probably why UNO elected to leave the LSU System for the UL System.
