I'm a Sidewalker, frick you very much. Proud of it. Now let me get your arrogant arse set straight.

Do you know what happens if we all disappeared overnight like it appears you would like? Your sports programs go away. Those hats and t shirts many of us buy bring in a hell of a lot of dollars. Without us, those big TV dollars also vanish. Poof, bitch.

Do you really think all the stadiums fill up every Saturday? Many of you can make that claim, but they won't. NCAA Football quickly becomes Club Football, which it sounds like what you want.

I love to see the tailgaters, the Alums having a great time, it's their school, hell they deserve it. But we like to enjoy it too. People like you want to frick it up.

Which is why USCe Football sucks today tomorrow and likely forevermore.

By the way, I don't drink.
This is not true. There are probably 50 academic papers on this subject that refute your point and distill the revenue channels specifically for college football, because its a unique market compared to the NFL, for example.

I'm not trying to degrade your fanhood, but you purchasing shirts and seats aren't impactful in a program's revenue model. Its an afrerthought.

What about the anti-sidewalker who uses the term "my second freshman year"

Generally? Endowment and alumni donations. There's a causality theme through all of these the papers I've read that those things lead to conference association, TV dollars, etc... Fanhood is not an anticedent to those things, rather it is an outcome.

You can find all of this shite if you have access to the Web of Science. Cheers.

Have you lost your mind? The Department of the Navy consist of Navy and Marines. We actually don't need anyone else to help us.

SEC Network makes a lot of money because of endowment and alumni donations? Here i thought it was viewership and commercials.

You’re right, I totally forgot how the Maremes stormed the beaches of Normandy, or Anzio, or Leyte. Such a proud and prestigious history.

Here's some truth, antibarner.

My family are TUF (Tigers Unlimited) scholly donors and we get eight seats per year. My grandparents pay about $50k per year to get the right to renew and purchase those tickets. Multiply that by many hundreds of people, and you'll realize what I'm talking about. This doesn't even factor in the 2% of alums that really make these SEC athlectic departments hum. Every school has them, and if they don't then they aren't in the SEC.

USS PC-1261 was a PC-461-class submarine chaser built for the United States Navy during World War II. She is notable for being the first ship sunk during the D-Day landings on 6 June 1944, when she was hit by shellfire from German shore batteries.

USS Corry (DD-463), a Gleaves-class destroyer, (also known as the Bristol class), was the second ship of the United States Navy to be named for Lieutenant Commander William M. Corry, Jr., an officer in the Navy during World War I and a recipient of the Medal of Honor.

Corry was launched 28 July 1941 by Charleston Navy Yard, sponsored by Miss Jean Constance Corry.[1] The ship was commissioned on 18 December 1941, Lieutenant Commander E. C. Burchett in command; and reported to the U.S. Atlantic Fleet. This ship sunk at D-Day as well.

I note they conveniently did not mention television. Football dies without TV. Period. No SEC Network, No CBS, No ESPN, forget about it.

Afterthought, nothing. And there's a hell of a lot more of us than you. If we turn off the TV's enjoy club football.

Suck on that truth, endowments or no. A few schools might be strong enough to hang on for awhile, but not for long. Most would die quickly and you'd lose that basketball tournament money too without us. R.I.P

I think you're not reading my prior post critically enough. You are focused on the outome of, in your words, 'viewership and commercials'.

The data is in the public domain. Read it. My opinion is based on that data.

Nearly every study I read indicates that the majority of football programs lose money, so at least the proceeds from those licensed caps and t shirts, plus the game tickets, help allay some of the cost for having a football team.
