The UGA football program was number five in revenue but it is number three in profit for the 2011-2012 season.
Revenue among FBS football programs ranged from a high of $103.8 million at Texas to a low of $3.6 million at the University of Louisiana at Monroe. The average FBS football program brought in $25 million, with a median of $19.9 million.
It should come as no surprise that the top revenue producers also led the FBS in average attendance in 2011. The top 10 programs in attendance also fell within the top 25 in revenue.
Texas didn’t top every list. The highest expenses for a football program went to the University of Alabama, which has the nation’s highest-paid head coach, Nick Saban. For the 2011-12 season, Saban took home a $4.8 million paycheck. Total expenses for the football program ran to $36.9 million.
Ohio State, Auburn, Penn State and Oklahoma State rounded out the top five in terms of expenditures on football. The FBS average was $14.6 million, with a median ...

WERE HIS PANTS ON FIRE?
When discussing if Nick Saban would ever return to the NFL, Ron Jaworski admitted he's not a fan of the Alabama head coach, saying, “I think he lied to the Miami Dolphins."
There is a good chance the Philadelphia Eagles will fire Andy Reid at the end of the season, and one name that has been mentioned as a possible replacement for him is Alabama coach Nick Saban. Legendary Eagles quarterback Ron Jaworski is not willing to give Saban his endorsement. As you know, Saban left LSU for short stint with the Miami Dolphins from 2005-2006. He then left Miami...
Nick Saban has only been head football coach at Alabama since 2007. That's apparently long enough for the Alabama Sports Hall of Fame, which has announced the induction of Saban and seven other members of its 2013 induction class. Coaching the Crimson Tide to two BCS titles in three years, with a chance to go three for four in the 2013 BCS title game apparently compensates for...
Nick Saban spent time in Vienna, Ga. Thursday and the reason was Montravius Adams. Alabama is high on Adams' list and he may just over a month from announcing his decision.
Alabama Football Coach Nick Saban is among those who have been selected for induction into the Alabama Sports Hall of Fame Class of 2013.
Just like Auburn fans and their WarIrish apparel, Tennessee fans have adopted the Fighting Irish image to root against Nick Saban and the Alabama Crimson Tide. The Tennessee Volunteers are rivals with the Alabama Crimson Tide and are in the same conference as them. Sometimes teams choose to root for teams in their own conference to win bowl game. Not in this case.
We already have...
Column: Don't fret, Alabama fans. Nick Saban is not leaving the Crimson Tide for the Cleveland Browns. Why would he leave his post as king of college football for the NFL? It's nonsensical.
Following the Southeastern Conference Football Championship Game, Alabama Coach Nick Saban noted that his Crimson Tide had not had good injury luck. The start of basketball season at Bama isn't looking too hot, either.
How about this Kirk Herbstreit character. The guy watches so much film that he’s already breaking down the 2102 bowl season. We hear that upstart Northern Illinois is the team to beat and will be facing Alabama, coached by Nick Saban’s grandson.
In 2102, hundreds of Bama fans will have this tattoo.
Finally, who let Chris Jericho on stage with Springsteen?
