info on Univ. of Michigan (2012-2013)
What you’re probably curious about is how the remaining $58,413,817 from Michigan football’s revenue was spent. It’s not uncommon for football and men’s basketball to be the only teams within an athletic department producing more revenue than the expenses generated for the team. In fact, other teams generating net revenue are the exception, not the rule.
Michigan does have two other teams who generate net revenue: men’s ice hockey and men’s lacrosse.

Face it guns will never be banned. A social change is needed. Like a complete overhaul. And that's another can if worms.
Most employers want one of two or both things. A degree and/or job experience. Depending on the type of field, it's a requirement to have one. Obviously jobs that have you stacking bricks or mixing cement doesn't require a degree. But if you want to attend any curriculum with a desire to pursue a career that requires a degree, you'll probably live in debt for the majority of your life. Sounds fantastic, right?
I'd rather have them reduce these ridiculous fucking costs for colleges and universities so we don't live in debt to begin with. Start with taking away the funding for college football (blasphemy, sorry). The costs just to maintain these athletic programs are ridiculous, and it's money that can be better spent. Why do I have to live in debt so some other meat head can play football? That alone gives me 0 incentive to attend any sort of college/university. It's fucking dumb.
I'll be happy with whatever job that requires dip shit thinking. At least I don't have to worry about a student loan from twenty years ago.Athletic Spending - 2013Athletic Spending - 2017NCAA Finances
