But what is the cost per win vs the total season take?

Don't think that would be able to be calculated until after the Orange Bowl

Ok, let me rephrase the question: During the regular season (which is what I assume the article was based upon), what is the cost per win vs the total season take?

There's something missing. I mean... I'm not a professional business man or anything. My BA degree is from WVU. But I kind of remember another side of cost that we like to call profit margin. Rutger's loses more every game than our games cost. Our athletics program is ranked 18th in revenue's and is profitable year in and year out. I haven't seen a single WVU fan at any freaking 99% bull-cookie occupations. Money talks. Let's Go!

According to the stats listed in the link for the 2009 season:

Total expenses: $19,018,891

Total revenue: $29,467,612

Profit: $10,448,721

I really don't understand the concept behind the "cost per win". Why would that matter? It's about the the end of year totals, is it not?

As you can clearly see, our football program actually turned a profit for 2009. That is something that only 47 of 117 programs can say (and we are ranked 28th out of the 47 profitable schools).

I think they are saying it is a measure of efficiency.

You can lose and still make money, not sure the point of this kind of list. Even as a measure of efficiency it's too greatly affected by just one loss or one win. Talk about painting with a broad brush.
