Sucks to be in the SEC. 16th nationally and middle of the road in your conference. I would like to see a correction for these places that remove package deals/conference money.


And what is TAMU planning for? 66 million in revenue over expenses? Maybe they'll buy us a plane.


Also, does this put an end to the nonsense about Clemson outspending USC?

Overall athletics which I think we have more programs and athletes than they do. I'm pretty sure I read a few years ago that they were outspending us in Football recruiting.

No, they spend their money on the recruiting trail.

I think both Clemson and USC spend a ton of cash--which isn't a bad thing. I also think when you look at this as a state by state breakdown, South Carolina is in 5th place (I think) which is impressive.


Clemson and USC have chosen slightly different ways to go about the investment. Something that shouldn't be overlooked is that 5% of the budget in the attached article was subsidized from the university. Clemson gave it's athletic department 4 million dollars at the expense of non-athletes. And that's not a model that sustainable, thus the 'alternative' revenue streams i.e. fans paying more on gameday or hoping for more bigtime private donations.


All I'm saying is that when we're getting into pissing contest about money being spent, keep in mind that there are limited resources. Clemson may spend more on going back and forth recruiting kids, but what is that at the expense of? And would USC students be willing to pay 300$ per ticket for lower bowl season tickets if that budget increased? Would season ticket holders be willing to pay even more?

At what point do the schools run the risk of pricing themselves out of the marketplace! Fan loyalty is a fickle thing-especially with early season losses people may find other things to do!

College football only comes once a year and we only get 7 saturdays out of 52 to experience them. I'm in the party of win or lose we still booze. I am there for the family and friends, the tailgating, the grilling, the partying. Winning is just icing on the cake.

I'm in the same boat, but when I look at the final cost, it makes me take pause. For the price of attending those seven games and parking and food and booze, I can take my entire family on a weeklong vacation anywhere within driving distance and have an extravagant house to stay in. If I spent the couple grand differently, I could make payments on a vacation rental property. In fact, I could afford to fly my entire family to Europe. I justify it now because of the 'making memories' thing and my family enjoys it, but when I look at my budget, it makes me wonder.


I really feel like the expense to the individual is about maxed out. You will always have the top percent that can afford luxury boxes and triple diamond platinum spur donation level, but with the income gap getting wider, it's the middle tier that you need to maximize, which is getting smaller. I always thought Clemson had something in IPTAY in that it gave even the people who didn't have savings or 401k's a way to contribute to the program in a meaningful way. You go in at the base level of donation here, you get a sticker I think, but not with the same sense that Clemson generated years ago with that program.


I think Clemson is on to something looking at alternative schemes, and now with USC banging out marketing campaigns better than Fortune 500 companies, we should be able to take that interest and turn it into dollars. Somehow. I'm assuming there are smarter people than me out there figuring that out.

I'm the opposite; I'm there for the game. Tailgating is ok, but if I'm going to party, there are better places than a parking lot.

There wonít be early season losses, except maybe Georgia, and that will be a 4th quarter game.

We havenít come close pricing ourselves out of the market. People donít mind paying to see a winning program.
