SEC Having Big Payday For Schools
Suffice it to say that Alabama Athletics Director Bill Battle had a better day than most alumni of The Capstone today. That's because he got the rough details regarding a check he'll collect from the SEC as part of this year's revenue-sharing plan.
Commissioner Mike Slive said the SEC will distribute approximately $289.4 million to the 14 league institutions for the 2012-13 fiscal year, which ends Aug. 31.
The $289.4 million is the highest total ever distributed in SEC history.
The revenue sharing plans include money generated by football television, bowls, the SEC Football Championship, basketball television, the SEC Men's Basketball Tournament, NCAA Championships and supplemental distribution.
The average amount to be distributed to each school is $20.7 million.
Not included in the $289.4 million was $14.1 million retained by the institutions participating in bowls and $980,000 divided among all 14 institutions by the NCAA for academic enhancement.
Revenues derived by the institutions from its local media packages are not included in the total amount.
Other yearly money distributions, since 1980, are as follows: 1980 ($4.1 million); 1981 ($5.57 million); 1982 ($7.24 million); 1983 ($9.53 million); 1984 ($18.4 million); 1985 ($9.34 million); 1986 ($13.1 million); 1987 ($13.56 million); 1988 ($14.34 million); 1989 ($13.85 million); 1990 ($16.3 million); 1991 ($20.6 million); 1992 ($27.7 million); 1993 ($34.34 million); 1994 ($34.36 million); 1995 ($40.3 million); 1996 ($45.5 million); 1997 ($58.9 million); 1998 ($61.2 million); 1999 ($68.5 million); 2000 ($73.2 million); 2001 ($78.1 million); 2002 ($95.7 million); 2003 ($101.9 million); 2004 ($108.8 million); 2005 ($110.7 million); 2006 ($116.1 million); 2007 ($122.0 million); 2008 ($127.6 million); 2009 ($132.5 million); 2010 ($209.0 million); 2011 ($219.9 million); 2012 ($244.0 million); 2013 ($289.4 million).
