The SEC made $527.4 million last year

We knew the SEC Network would bring the SEC a lot of money, but I don’t know if we anticipated it bringing $527.4 million. According to USA Today, that’s how much the SEC made in its first fiscal year receiving money from the SEC Network and the College Football Playoff. Even Scrooge McDuck would get tired of swimming around in all of that.

An interesting note: the SEC’s $527.4 million is more than half of the $906 million the NCAA made in the fiscal year ending on August 31, 2014. ðŸ˜³

The SEC: Not only are we better at football than you, we’re a hell of a lot richer, so please, keep hating us!

    That leaves 372.4m all other conferences and independents made. SEC made 154m more than all of them which is close to 1.5 times more than all of them. Going to be some knocks on the SEC door.

      Daaaaang. $527 million divided by 300 million people in the country. Each person in the country could get $1.75 million. That would end poverty. LOL. #powerball

    Wow! Does that mean they’re going to cut the rates, since they are overcharging for the content so blatantly?

    Anyone that says UK should leave the SEC or why should we all cheer for other SEC schools in bowls or whatever if UK not in them, hello this is why.
