    Interesting that the Penn State scandal didn't downgrade their status in the eyes of Forbes despite the school having sponsors pull out, the boosters being up in arms threatening to stop supporting the program (because Paterno got fired incidentally, not because of the coverup) the state of PA, the Federal Government, the NCAA and the Big Ten all investigating.

    ORD_Buckeye Wrong glass, Sir.

    OK, I have a question for the sanctions gurus. Ohio State doesn't make any more money for appearing in a BCS bowl than Indiana does for sitting home since the Big Ten puts all bowl money into the pot to be divided equally among all schools regardless of what bowl they appeared in or even if they appeared in a bowl at all.

    If we're serving a bowl ban, and under ncaa rules, do we still get our split of the pot or are we forced to forego all conference bowl money.

    That was interesting - the original Forbes article makes clear they are looking backwards in their reporting.
    Put another way, the impact on Penn State of Sandusky and his back-street biebers will be felt in years to come. At $20 Million (before a major drops out) that is a significant hit.

    If one of the majors (Pepsi, Nike) starts cutting back then you have cataclysmic financial fall-out I guess.

    What the hell is a Cleveland company with an Ohio State alumnus CEO doing supporting Ped Fucking State?

    This is just a guess, but it may be that with tOSU out of the mix, then there is a better chance there will only be one B1G team (conference champ) going to a BCS game. In many of the years where we were an at-large team, there was no one else nearly qualified from our conference to have gone in our place.

    Next year we have as good a chance as anyone to win the conference. If that happens, we can't go, meaning the runner-up would go in our stead. How good are the chances that the B1G number three team would be chosen over all other conferences number two team? IMO, not good.

    That would mean the conference would lose all the money from the second bowl, hence the rating downgrade.

    Not likely, given the TV sets that are active in the B1G footprint.

    Ultimately what Forbes says about the Ohio State athletic machine means pretty much nothing. What matters is the revenue and expense, which Forbes has nothing to do with. But it's clear that Gene Smith recognized the importance of Buckeyes football winning, and winning big, on funding our many sports at tOSU.

    Not defending S-W as they're a competitor of mine, but trade sales paint companies advertise in a LOT of localities. This is just one more instance. Take it FWIW.

    I would guess it's all the T-Shirts and everything else that says "20xx Rose Bowl" on them. That stuff doesn't get shared with the rest of the B1G iirc.

    Cost of recruiting....

    ....it's not cheap.

    Hey, big senders! [Tennessee] men's sports teams aren't churning out national champions like other SEC schools, but the Vols are clear champions when it comes to their recruiting budget. According to the website BusinessofCollegeSports.com, UT men's teams spent more than $1.8 million on recruiting in the 2010-11 year. That's tops in the SEC by a substantial margin. Auburn was No. 2, spending a little more than $1.5 million, according to the website. By comparison, the Lady Vols spent $417,252, the second highest total in the SEC. Auburn was the SEC's top spender on the women's side, with a budget of $586,728. The recruiting budget data is based on information that schools provide to the U.S. Department of Education.
