    Default Random Question

    Are there any wrestling teams that actually turn a profit for their schools? If anyone did I'd imagine it'd be Iowa, Ok St, maybe Penn St recently. If anyone has a link to scools sports finances I'd love to see it. Thanks!

    No Links that I have but I believe Minny supports it's own program. They draw well at home and on the road.

    Very few ''minor'' programs even break even-Football( and the TV contracts) are the ultimate cash cow.
    You know, I think I would rather be a man than a god . We don't need anyone to believe in us. We just keep going anyhow. It's what we do.

    I know football is where the money is at...the last year in college football has certainly reinforced that fact.

    I don't think any programs turn a profit. Some might not cost any money thanks to sport specific donations and endowments, but there just aren't enough events to turn a profit.

    Iowa, has 7 home events this year, OSU and Minnesota are $13 and others are $10. If they sold out CHA for every dual, they would make $1,178,000. They don't come close to this. They averaged 8,209 last season or a little over half full. So figure they are bringing in closer to $500,000. On the opposite side, on the other side they have coaches salaries, scholarships, equipment etc. They probably get fairly close, but do not turn a profit.
