SEC in National Championship game solidarity thread : Why give away 20M a year?

Check in here if you want the SEC to win tonight

From this article in Forbes LINK

That’s not a ton of money, especially once you start breaking it down at a per-school level – Wichita State’s Final Four run will only earn the school an extra $80,000 or so per year – but it adds up quickly when a major conference has multiple schools making deep runs. Take, for instance, the ACC, which last year took home $18 million – or nearly 10% of the total distribution – from the 74 tournament units its teams won over the previous six tournaments. The Big Ten, Big 12 and Big East (prior to splitting) all netted over $20 million.

This year the ACC has six teams in the big dance, which means the conference is assured $1.5 million this year and another $8 million over the next five just from this year’s tournament – and that’s assuming all of those teams lose their first-round games. If just one team makes a run to the Final Four, it will add another $1.1 million to the conference take in each of the next six years.

I'm pulling for y'all and wish you the best of luck.

I'm not a UK fan by any means, but I do enjoy watching a team of great athletes click at the best time possible.

I find UCONN easy to root against.

Let's do this Kentucky. Hoping Aaron kills it.

I think Ollie did a great coaching job for sure. (better than Cal) I think he is better suited to be an NBA coach though. If I was a UConn alumnus I would cringe every time Ollie said "we was". I mean isn't he representing a University?

Regarding rooting for the SEC? Nah, I will pass. I only cheer for FL or for someone who's win would benefit FL. We are done this year, so I got no dog in this fight. I couldn't care less who wins.

Not really sure why anyone, other than perhaps Tennessee or Florida, really hates Kentucky in the conference.

Yeah, they have annoying fans, but it's not like the remainder of teams are good enough, often enough, to really consider them a rival.

I didn't attend the Univ of the SEC, pal.

I am, however, a big fan of chaos and exploding heads.
