    Yeah but UNI's cut would have disappeared when they had to foot the bill for traveling to that game.

    Eh, it's $14million that they never really should have had a chance of getting, anyway.

    As for Bowling Green, "Hello!?! You play to win the game!!"

    It cost over a million dollars just to travel and the cost of lodging?

    That new to me.

    The University is on the hook for their allotment of tickets also. If they can't sell them that have to eat them.

    When you factor in the BCS makes the school pay for all the tickets plus travel for the players coaches and band, and lodging I'd say yes. UConn lost a bunch money going to the BCS a few years ago.

    I'd like to see you itemize their expenses to the tune of 1.2 million dollars please.

    Go back and read what Skip, Verge and Alleva were quoted on in reference to the expenses associated with LSU'S CG appearances
