No fans - therefore no gate receipts, no concession or souvenir sales
poor tv contracts and if only playing in division, how many people east of the Rockies will want to watch WSU vs. OSU, or UA vs. Colo? so not much revenue there
If we don't get into big bowls, poor revenue flow.
I think this is more aligned with sponsorships. If the shoe/clothing companies withheld their money, the schools would really suffer from 100% of revenue loss. playing in front of no fans, is low risk and low cost, thus allowing the teams to probably cover staff salaries.
I agree - spineless cowards
