Shielded by the Big Ten


With fans still reeling from
the football team's first losing
season in 40 years, the ques-
tion now is how the team's
lackluster performance will
impart the Athletic Depart-
ment's revenue.
By failing to qualify for a
bowl game for the first time in
34 years, Michigan also failsato
rake in the money that comes
with playing in a postseason
contest. Bowl game payouts
range from $300,000 per
team for smaller howl games
like Papa Johns Bowl up to
$17 million per team for BCS
games like the Rose Bowl
The Athletic Department is
projected to have a surplus of
$10.3 million at the end of the
2005 financial year, but how
much money will it lose by the
team not making a bowl?

Believe it or not, it might
not lose any.
Because of how bowl game
payouts work, Michigan's
postseason absence means
the University will lose out
on some money, but thanks to
ehe success of other Big Ten
teams, not that much. When a
team is invited to participate
in a bowl game, it splits what-
ever money it makes with the
other teams in the confer-
ence. tn Michigan's case, that
means dividing the revenue 11
different ways.
The more Big Ten teams
that make a bowl, the better
Michigan does financially.
Even though Penn State and
Ohio State are the only Big 10
teams in serious contention
for BCS game invitea, North-
western, Minnesota and

Michigan State are having
above-average seasons and
could make prominent bowl
games, too. Because of that,
those schools could offset the
approximately $2 million that
Michigan has earned each
Big Ten school over the past
three years.
Last year, the Wolverines
played in the Capital One
Bowl in Florida, and in 2007
the team lost in the Rose
Bowl. Three years ago the
team lost in the Alamo Bowl.
Members of the football
team might be the biggest
losers in the deal. Corporate
bowl game sponsors typi-
cally give athletes armloads
of giveaways, from bookbags
and video game consoles to
department store gift cards.
