Story highlights -
The SEC announced another set of eye-opening figures on Thursday as they detailed their numbers from the 2018-19 fiscal year (which primarily covers the 2018 football season). Among the highlights? A whopping $651 million in total revenue that was distributed back to the 14 schools in the conference that resulted in a check of roughly $44.6 million to each program. . . . The record revenues for the league are still a tad behind their Power Five peer the Big Ten however. The latter conference recently topped $50 million in distributions to its 14 members Ń a figure expected to keep growing past $60 million with further increases in media rights deals. . . . . Either way, the growing gap between the haveŐs and the have notŐs in college athletics continues to be on further display. . . . For example, the Pac-12 distributed a reported $31.3 million for the same fiscal year.

The SEC Commissioner, Greg Sankey, works out of a modest office in Birmingham, Alabama. Maybe the PAC should move Larry ScottŐs butt to Bakersfield until his Big Moves pay off.
