I wonder what the poor programs are doing tonight.

Tucked in at the end of the AJ-C’s article on the $40 million expansion approved for Butts-Mehre (recession? what recession?) is this little financial tidbit:

… The board also approved a fiscal year 2010 operating budget of $71.4 million for the athletics association, up 12.2 percent from this fiscal year. Projected revenue for the 2010 fiscal year is $84.8 million, up 11.2 percent.

Much of the revenue increase is attributed to the new SEC television contract, which more than offsets a drop of $2 million-$3 million in contributions tied to football season tickets.

I’ll say.

    Is the projected $84,800,000.00 revenue for 2010 what the Congressional Budget Office Director would call a ‘side business’?
