The NCAA accidentally leak last 5 years of financial statements online:
The NCAA brought home $636.2 million in revenue in 2008, which is one hell of a figure for essentially one month of basketball. $359 million of that went back to Division 1 schools, and nearly $230 million more went to staging championships, competitions, and programs in all three divisions. That left $26 million for the NCAA's "management and general," and another $24 million in profit. You'll see also, that as of 2008, the NCAA had $356 million invested in various financial markets.
Andre Drummond is struggling early, and he's only averaging 17 MPG. But mark my words this kid is going to be a beast.
I'm so pumped for the 2012 draft. Assuming everyone or most declares it's going to be ridiculously stacked.
ETSU beats UNC-Charlotte 70-69 on a buzzer-beating three by Jarvis Jones. Only shot the guy made all night. It was an awfully sloppy game with 45 combined turnovers, but I'll most definitely take the win and the 3-game winning streak after the debacle we had in Blacksburg.
I hate to shoot my mouth off about it because I doubt they'll back it up, but every game up to the Tennessee game on 12/23 is very winnable for this team if they play to their potential. We've already beaten Troy and App State and both have seen the way we play the press, so those could be losses, but I still think we have a shot at both games. This is a pretty talented team, although nowhere near Belmont's level (nobody in this conference is). Now, if we can just start hitting free throws, something we haven't been able to do since Pigram and Tiggs left...
