re: Seven (7) SEC schools in the Top 15 of Athletic Department Revenues

LSU regularly turns a profit in (baseball). Last season, the Tigers made $5.8 million and spent $4.3 million for a $1.5 million profit. The numbers dwarf most of LSU’s SEC brethren outside of Texas A&M.

The Aggies turned a $1.6 million profit last year, but that was an anomaly, said Jeff Toole, Texas A&M’s chief financial officer for athletics. Included in A&M’s 2015-16 SEC-leading baseball revenue ($6.01 million) is millions in donations to the school for a stadium renovation project.

“Ordinarily it would not show (those numbers),” Toole said. “I would be surprised if LSU is not the most profitable baseball program.”

Was A&N’s lack of money the reason Texas kicked them out of the Big 12?

It's funny you say that (about getting kicked out of the Big 12 for being a leech).

quote:

The Big 12 Conference promised Texas A&M $20 million annually and the Aggies intend to collect, A&M president R. Bowen Loftin said Wednesday.

quote:

And what happens if the Big 12 doesn’t honor its $20 million pledge? A high-ranking A&M official said late Wednesday that every legal avenue would be explored first, with the potential of bolting for the Southeastern Conference coming after.

quote:

The A&M official said Wednesday it wasn’t the school’s “concern” how the Big 12 got its money together for the revenue distribution — just that it lived up to its promise of $20 million annually, starting in 2012-13. The league’s pledge is oral, and the A&M official said the school’s lawyers are working to get the commitment in writing.

More from the same article:
quote:

Nebraska and Colorado announced in June they are leaving the Big 12 for the Big Ten and Pacific 10, respectively, with the Cornhuskers set to leave next year (and Colorado to be determined). The two schools will have reported exit fees of between $30 million and $40 million combined, and in keeping the league intact, five of the schools that would have been left behind had the conference dissolved — Baylor, Missouri, Iowa State, Kansas and Kansas State — had agreed to give up their parts of the departing schools’ fees to the “big three” to make sure they reached the $20 million.

quote:

Beebe said Tuesday that Texas and Oklahoma had declined that offer from the five schools, but that A&M — whose athletic department is in the early stages of paying back a $16 million loan to the university — had not.

Aggy was broke AF.

Their cover stories about Texas' backroom dealings, the Longhorn Network and getting out of Texas' shadow were all lies -- they needed money badly, and the SEC threw them a lifeline.

So A&M was hurting for money in the Big 12, and the only way to keep a respectable revenue stream for the major programs that was comparable to what other conferences paid their member schools was to steal from the lesser programs?

I do believe you just made a great argument for why A&M left your shite heap of a conference.

Now, list all of the sec school's national titles post ww2 that are in that same top 15. I know you don't want to bc it defeats the purpose of why you made this post. We all know "Texas AM is rich and has all this money blah, blah, blah." Texas AM sucks dude. If it were possible to buy a national title, yall would have done so by now. Now, shut up and get in your lane, bitch...which is like 4th in the SEC west. Lol. FACTS.

Before you go popping off at the mouth, which you suck cock with... LINK

LSU owns you. A lot of your wins came before ww2 and you suck donkey dick. Check out the full games list lol. It shows you how dominant LSU has been over you fags all time. It will continue. That's just LSU as well. You still have to hope for auburn and Bama to have a down year in addition to LSU for yall to even hope for an sec west title. Yall are royally fricked. Good luck with that, you howdy doody mother frickers.

Oh thank god. I was thinking about what they actually do on the field. I’m glad you were able to debunk this theory that they were clearly the superior program in that state....

No.

Aggy voted for a Big 12 TV revenue plan that gave teams more money based on how many times they appeared on television, thinking they were hot shit, but when their team sucked arse and no one cared to watch pimply-faced boys grab their nuts and play fake army, it all backfired.

Then when the opportunity to "steal from the lesser programs" came, TEXAS and Oklahoma declined because they were doing well, but aggy threw a shite fit and demanded to steal, or else they'd leave for another sugar daddy in the Southeastern Conference (which you did).

Big 12 was desperate to keep A&M, so it offered us a 20 million dollar guarantee, regardless of the fact that the conferences TV exposure sucked ass. We accepted that offer, and then Texas and OU, which knew it had its people in the right places to make TV decisions, and therefore didn’t need the guarantee, went to the media with the claim that they “declined” the deal, all in an effort to make their conference partner look bad. We should have shut that fricker down right then and left.

Thank God you overplayed your hand with the LHN, because you suck toxic turtle dick, and we are infinitely better off as a program since leaving the conference that you pollute with your toxic bull shite. We’re certainly not a program that has trouble getting on TV anymore. A lot has changed for us since leaving your shitty conference.

You have never to this day justified why A&M was the least televised team in College Football the year prior to all of the realignment moves (2009) and why the conference allowed that to happen.

And the second school along with TEXAS with over $200 million+ in expenses. Not much to brag about when your expenses nearly equal or exceed your revenues.


Ohio State funds 37 varsity sports with that money. Georgia, by comparison funds 19 varsity sports and Texas A&M has 20.

I'd agree that the conference tried to keep aggy. Aggy even stopped high school football games from being shown on the Longhorn Network.

It's a fact that Texas and Oklahoma declined the extra money. Even though aggy was catered to continually, your spiraling debt was too much and you knew you could never keep up with Texas as a member of the Big 12.

The writing was on the wall, so you left. Hasta la vista.

That’s false. They declined a guarantee of money they knew they would get even without the guarantee. That’s a big fricking difference, you dumb shite. Then Texas ran to the media with claims of its own largesse in an effort to run down their conference partner. So frick them, and frick you.

Well that's the issue isn't it. They've done so much better on the field and their AD still makes way less money... you know... the sole driver behind expansion.

It cracks me up how A&M fans are so excited to post these threads every time. It's basically the only thing they have to hang their hats on.
