Description: Last year college football produced over $1 billion in profits. Attendance reached all-time highs and record-breaking television contracts were announced. Despite the enormous revenue, college football is in upheaval. Schools are throwing their academic mission aside to fund their football teams. The media is beating the drum for athletes to be paid. The president wants a playoff. And the conferences are being radically revised as schools search for TV money. Saturday Millionaires shows that schools are right to fund their football teams first; that athletes can never be paid; that a playoff will never happen; how the media skews the financial facts; and why the TV deals are so important. It follows the money to the heart of college football and shows the real game being played, covering such areas as:Myth #1: All Athletic Departments Are Created EqualMyth #2: Supporting Football Means Degrading AcademicsMyth #3: College Football Players Should Be PaidMyth #4: The Federal Government Can Deliver a PlayoffMyth #5: A Playoff Will Bring Untold Riches to All College Football ProgramsMyth #6: Bowl Games and Athletic Departments Are Charities Because They’re Non-Profits
