And it’s one, two, three, what are we fighting for?

The Orlando Sentinel has a handy post up listing total athletic department revenues at all D-1 football schools here.  You won’t find any real surprises there.  In fact, this summary in the post is spot on:

As the figures indicate, the athletic departments with the highest revenue typically are from schools that have filled 80,000- to 100,000-seat football stadiums on autumn Saturdays and come from conferences that receive an automatic Bowl Championship Series bid.

That’s how you get Utah with its 80th-ranked, almost $27 million in revenues asking for more fairness in the postseason.

The Sentinel’s got more money stuff here.
