Jimbo has the noles playing top 10 football, in a fertile recruiting state, at a school with passionare fan base and winning tradition. Why leave for AU?
According to businessofcollegesports.com, based on the latest numbers, AU football had $66 mil in revenues and $38 mil in profits. This ranked 9th (ahead of notre dame football).
FSU had $19 mil in revenues and only $2.6 mil in profits. This ranks 99th (behind georgetown basketball).
