So a UT commission with Lady Vol fans on this committee determines that a sport that losses money actually makes money for the community or state. Have they been on TV in the last month? Do they fill even 50% of the arena? Is anyone traveling to stay in hotels?
Remember, the BCS TV deal for all BCS games and the championship game, is $125 million per year. That is given to the conferences of participants. They estimate the new playoff format will be $250-$300 million. That is per year. The MEN'S NCAA tournament annual TV rights are $779 million. Again, $779 million. The TV ratings for the Final Four are double that of the BCS Championship game. The attendance and ticket prices are virtually the same for the Final Four Championship game and the BCS game.
But hey, them there Lady Vols generate $151 million for the state. Sorry, the numbers do not add up.
