I'd say the extra was just a matter of making slightly more $ than they budgeted....not something to look at as an indicator of doing really really well.
I think it is...it means that USC will be better positioned to compete with the elite programs in the nation when it comes to facilities. And keep USC a step or two ahead of Clemson in this regard, which should be always important. And this doesn't even add the additional revenues that are projected from the forthcoming SEC Network...
