USA Today produced an article on College Athletics Finances and while it focuses heavily on Texas in the editorial part of the piece, there is an interactive graphic that details the revenues and expenses at NCAA D-I public schools from 2006-2011.
Naturally, Virginia is in that listing. The base numbers follow. USA Today explains the methodology here.
- 2011: $78,439,006 in revenue and $72,400,342 in expenses. (+6,038,664)
- 2010: $81,841,633 in revenue and $70,870,412 in expenses. (+10,971,221)
- 2009: $67,141,171 in revenue and $63,696,905 in expenses. (+3,444,266)
- 2008: $64,396,612 in revenue and $65,838,543 in expenses. (-1,441,931)
- 2007: $64,069,968 in revenue and $64,852,417 in expenses. (-782,449)
- 2006: $52,898,726 in revenue and $51,591,398 in expenses. (+1,307,328)
According to the article, “Texas’ program is one of only 22 across Division I that operate in the black – it generated enough revenue to cover athletics expenses” so the numbers put UVa in rare company in that regard. Over the six-year period, Virginia’s revenue exceeded its expenses by $19,537,099.
