ESPN OTL on revenue in college sports: Michigan led B1G with net profit of $90 million over last 6 years
ESPN OTL did a study on the last six years of college ADs finances (2007-08 to 2012-13). Michigan led the Big Ten during the period with a total of $90,243,483 of profit, averaging $15,040,580.50/per year.
Ohio State was number #1 in the country in 2012-13 with a surplus of $24 million. Michigan was #4 in revenues ($143.5 million), #3 in expenses ($131 million), & #7 in surplus ($12.2 million) in 2012-13. I was a little surprised at how much Wisconsin made in 2012-13, ranking #2 in the country in revenue and expenses, but I guess this may be dependent on how many home football games a school has and how schools maintain their financial books.

Pretty good in-depth preview of 2014 Maryland football over on SB Nation. BLUF: The Terps could be poised for a breakout season this year if they can get on the positive side of the injury trend and their previously-young team improves with age/experience (where have we heard this before?).
Of course, this potential breakout season rolls around when Maryland makes their first trip to Ann Arbor. After a big road win in Blacksburg last year, it doesn't seem like the Terps are too intimidated by big road environments.

No RR, no Barwis. No Barwis, and the tweet below might not have happened. Some things transcend football.

This has been blowing up on Twitter.
Auburn previously claimed only two MNCs: 1957 and 2010.
1993. You know, the year they were banned from a bowl as well as a TELEVISION ban.
This would be like ohio claiming the 2012 MNC.
