I ran across this article today that reveals the University of Alabama made $143 million from it's athletic department. Of which. $109 million came from football. The $143 million in revenue is more than ALL 30 NHL teams and more than 25 of the 30 NBA teams.
Wait.........it gets better.........Alabama is 2nd in overall revenue behind Texas, which brought in a whooping $165 million fr it's athletic program.
Still think the so- call Student-Athletes are getting a fair shake with just tuition, books and room/board being covered ? I'm sure the Student-Athlete at Northwestern doesn't. And when the so called Student-Athletes at Alabama and Texas see these numbers they are going to want a CHANGE as well.........but in the form of Dead Presidents!
She the numbers in the article below for yourself. #Crazy!
