Below is the Forbes List for most profitable College Football Teams of 2018:

#25 Texas Tech = Revenue: $60 million / Profit: $31 million

#24 Wisconsin = Revenue: $78 million / Profit: $43 million

#23 Iowa = Revenue: $79 million / Profit: $38 million

#22 Michigan State = Revenue: $80 million / Profit: $39 million

#21 Ole Miss = Revenue: $80 million / Profit: $42 million

#20 Nebraska = Revenue: $83 million / Profit: $46 million

#19 Washington = Revenue: $84 million / Profit: $36 million

#18 USC = Revenue: $87 million /Profit: $47 million

#17 Florida State = Revenue: $88 million / Profit: $41 million

#16 Georgia = Revenue: $89 million / Profit: $55 million

#15 South Carolina = Revenue: $90 million / Profit: $50 million

#14 Penn State = Revenue: $92 million / Profit: $48 million

#13 Arkansas = Revenue: $92 million / Profit: $54 million

#12 Oregon = Revenue: $92 million / Profit: $54 million

#11 Tennessee = Revenue: $108 million Profit: $60 million

#10 Florida = Revenue: $111 million / Profit: $67 million

#9 LSU = Revenue: $112 million / Profit: $56 million

#8 Auburn = Revenue: $112 million / Profit: $61 million

#7 Notre Dame = Revenue: $112 million / Profit: $72 million

#6 Oklahoma = Revenue: $118 million / Profit: $72 million

#5 Ohio State = Revenue: $120 million / Profit: $69 million

#4 Alabama = Revenue: $127 million / Profit: $59 million

#3 Michigan = Revenue: $127 million / Profit: $75 million

#2 Texas = Revenue: $133 million / Profit: $87 million

#1 Texas A&M = Revenue: $148 million / Profit: $107 million


I do find it interesting that Forbes prioritizes Revenue over Profit Margin in their rankings.

-- Take #5 Oklahoma and #6 Notre Dame for example -- Both took in a Profit of $72 million, though, at $118 million vs $112 million Revenue, Oklahoma spent $6 million more than Notre Dame.

-- Also look at #9 LSU, #10 Florida, and #11 Tennessee -- LSU had a larger Revenue than both Florida, with $112 million to $111 million, or Tennessee $108 million -- Yet Tennessee [$60 million] had a + $4 million Profit, and Florida [$67 million] with + $11 million more than LSU's $56 million.

Ohio State is paying for a library from with a commitment from Athletics. They also find more varsity sports than any other school in the nation. 36. Of course none of this is correct because they are all non profit.

I'm not sure how South Carolina receives more in revenue than Ga.

I'm gonna have to call BS on that.
They’re either going to run the ball here or their going to pass it.

The fewer rules a coach has, the fewer rules there are for players to break.

See, well ya see, the thing is, he should have caught that ball. But the ball is bigger than his hands.

$1 million more in Revenue, but again, like my other Comments ... Georgia sees a greater Profit return, at $5 million more.

Granted, these were just the numbers from last season, and not an average yearly estimate.

I'm surprised no one has mentioned it yet, so I guess I will.
Last Season's National Champions didn't even make the list.

Clemson's itpay brought in 39 million last year...just itpay...not sure how these lists are compilated but I know there are many private nonreporting schools. eg. BYU and Notre Dame...pretty sure these two would make the list.

This is to a great extent about TV revenue and some conferences are compete with Andy of Mayberry....which in my opinion is tough competition.

Yeah, I'd like to see what their data points are. There is a LOT more Ga clothes being bought than South Carolina shirts. A lot more USC or Florida State jerseys being bought than Arkansas or Carolina.

My error. I am not sure BYU would be but I do know that do not report. (That's okay, private schools can do whatever they please along those lines.)
