    2016 (Public) Athletic Department Balance Sheets

    The new numbers are out for the 2016-2017 academic year published by USA Today: http://sports.usatoday.com/ncaa/finances/

    I find it interesting to look at how FCS schools balance, or try to balance, their athletic budgets. If you click on the school you can see the subsidies the athletic department took in broken down by student fees and "school funds". It allows you to sort based on total revenue, total expenses, and % subsidy. Here's the top 10 for each amongst FCS schools (I just eyeballed it so there may be some mistakes). Keep in mind this is for all sports, not just football.

    Total revenue (highest)
    1. James Madison $47,442,648
    2. Delaware $34,309,705
    3. UC Davis $32,459,650
    4. Stony Brook $31,692,805
    5. New Hampshire $29,173,085
    6. Cal Poly $28,338,679
    7. Towson $27,424,255
    8. Sacramento St $26,741,348
    9. Rhode Island $26,627,943
    10. Illinois St $26,521,556

    Total revenue (lowest)
    1. Alabama A&M $2,592,863
    2. Mississippi Valley St $4,288,571
    3. Alcorn St $5,441,889
    4. Grambling $6,198,723
    5. Arkansas-Pine Bluff $7,141,263
    6. Jackson St $7,602,536
    7. South Carolina St $8,449,844
    8. Nicholls St $8,587,660
    9. Morgan St $10,453,448
    10. UT Martin $10,679,463

    Total expenses (highest)
    1. James Madison $47,442,648
    2. Delaware $34,309,705
    3. UC Davis $31,837,452
    4. Stony Brook $30,968,765
    5. Towson $29,412,429
    6. New Hampshire $28,908,841
    7. Southern Illinois $27,544,434
    8. Sacramento St $27,348,042
    9. William & Mary $26,499,511
    10. North Dakota $26,327,877

    Total expenses (lowest)
    1. Mississippi Valley St $4,288,571
    2. Alcorn St $6,751,529
    3. Arkansas Pine-Bluff $7,153,294
    4. Jackson St $7,602,536
    5. South Carolina St $8,438,685
    6. Nicholls St $8,492,701
    7. Grambling $8,642,954
    8. Alabama A&M $9,372,315
    9. UT Martin $10,679,463
    10. Texas Southern $10,889,527

    % subsidy/allocated (lowest)
    1. Montana 34.15
    2. North Dakota St 34.47
    3. South Dakota St 45.50
    4. North Dakota 47.95
    5. VMI 48.20
    6. Northern Iowa 48.96
    7. McNeese St 49.13
    8. Mississippi Valley St 50.47
    9. Montana St 51.14
    10. Florida A&M 53.89

    % subsidy/allocated (highest)
    1. Central Connecticut 88.40
    2. Morehead St 88.09
    3. Towson 86.35
    4. Sacramento St 84.83
    5. Stony Brook 84.58
    6. Morgan St 83.35
    7. Delaware St 82.76
    8. Alabama St 82.27
    9. Texas Southern 82.22
    10. Stephen F Austin 81.94

    Pretty interesting to see where we all stack up amongst the big boys I thought.

    Re: 2016 (Public) Athletic Department Balance Sheets

    A couple interesting notes.

    JMU gets more revenue from student fees ($36M+) than any other FCS school's total revenue.

    I still don't know how MVSU supports a D1 athletic department with less than $5M. Their lack of success is not surprising given their lack of investment in athletics. Why even have a D1 athletic department if you're going to underfund it so badly?

    FCOA doesn't seem to have a huge impact on AD expenses. NDSU didn't even crack the top 10 in the FCS after giving FCOA to all scholarship athletes this year.

    Interesting that Stonybrook has 4th highest income, 4th highest expenses and 5th most subsidy. As a NY resident I am appalled. When SHU visits Stonybrook this year I will announce at the gate "I have already paid for my ticket!!!" NY also just passed free college tuition if you meet certain income (or lack thereof) requirements....

    Something's got to be wrong with Alabama A&M's numbers. They went from $7.6M in school funds to $38k in a single year.

    Some observations:

    The dropoff in Delaware's ticket revenue and donations the last few years is pretty staggering.

    Umass is truly pathetic.

    Interesting that JMU has a larger budget than FBS ODU but it's basically on the backs of the students, as opposed to donations and ticket revenue.

    William and Mary alumni give back impressively. They dont buy tickets impressively.

I guess you should expect it from a career high school coach. Who btw, underachieved in high school. What a loser.

    Football had a budget of $8.2 million last year. There's also the debt service payments for the stadium which is another $5.5.

    Our total is so large because we have 17 other D1 programs we sponsor outside of football.

    The average budget in the MVFC for football is like 3.1m

    8.2 is double that if NDSU.

    Why?

    I used to care about UNI football. May well again some day....
