    I guess I'm fairly surprised that CU's program is ranked as high as 5th amongh revenue-generators in our conference. Of course it was a good season as far as television is concerned. Also noteworthy is that football is our ONLY revenue-generating sport.

    aTm is generating a bigger revenue than OU? Texas almost doubles OU´s revenue? WOW

    It was a lot higher last year when Franchione still had his "insider's newsletter".

    Are we really within 5 million of NU for football revenues? Surprised to see that.

    I'm surprised the revenues of NU and Mizzou are not higher.

    Definitely not the propaganda I got from the Buff Club begging me to renew my membership and season ticket donation in 2008 for 2009.... of course I did. :thumbsup:

    On the flip side of this equation, Hawkins salary would be in the right range if CU's football revenues were cut in half. Funny how agents never bring up the flip side.

    Don't these bloggers know that it's a Colorado tradition to pay half your salary in scenery?

    I can't say that I agree with the implication that a coach should be judged solely on the amount of revenue the program brings in under his tenure, with no regard for performance on the field. Revenue certainly matters but I think in this context it functions as a means to an end (winning football games) rather than an ends itself.

    I think the judging depends on the judge. An administrator cares about the money...a fan cares about the W, and a lot of different shades in between.

    Reading this reminds me of how screwed up this season was. 57 yard field goal? broke our RBs leg on a horse collar tackle? what gives. To next season! Rodney stewart was the only good part of this year.
