$1.9 million lost?

#1 Post by Haynr8dr » Sat Nov 27, 2010 5:57 pm

Anyone else catch Mark May on College Game Day?

They were discussing the implications of Nevada's upset of Boise St., and Mark May said each WAC program lost about $1.9 million dollars because Boise St. got eliminated by Nevada for a BCS Bowl - part of the irony, aka, humor involved as they discussed it - the fact that Nevada's victory cost them $1.9 million.

I recall we got a fair chunk of change the last couple of times Boise St. was in a BCS Bowl, but I don't remember it being that much - perhaps inflation.

Closer to a million according to this article: http://msn.foxsports.com/collegefootbal ... ion-120110
When is a win a loss? Ask Nevada.

The team pulled off a stunning upset against Western Atlantic conference rival Boise State on Saturday — a win that also lost $1 million for the school.

If Boise State — ranked No. 4 in the BCS standings headed into the game — had made it to a BCS bowl game, every school in the WAC would've received a cut of the money the Broncos would pick up in television revenue, according to a Business Insider report. But with the loss, Boise State is out of the hunt for a BCS bowl and WAC schools won't reap the rewards.

The BCS's new television deal is set to pay out $125 million in TV revenue. The bigger deal meant that if a WAC school made a BCS bowl game, the entire conference was set to take in more than $10 million, Business Insider said.

Of that payout, rougly $3 million could've gone to Boise State with the rest — around $7 million — being distributed to the other WAC schools, according to the publication.

So how much would each school have received? About $1 million each, including the Nevada team whose upset apparently cost them a big check.
