- Collectively college football made more than a $1.1 billion profit last year
- The average college football coach's salary at top schools is over $1.47 million dollars a year
- The college graduation rate is 38% -- with most dropouts citing money as the cause
- Between 1998 and 2008, tuition and fees for a public school increased by nearly 130 percent, while income for the middle class has pretty much been frozen
How can it be that college football generates so much revenue but tuition continues to soar? We are so drunk on college football -- literally and figuratively -- that we think this is normal. Something needs to change.
