    UL Football The countdown to Super Conference

    http://www.mrsec.com/2012/12/big-ban...1/#more-260564

    This article is a week old. However, it has very poignant points on how the disparity of gross revenue for each school and its Conferences.

    "Amazingly the biggest FBS school in terms of 2011-12 revenue (Texas) brought in about $153 million more than the smallest money-maker in the FBS (ULM $9.4M)."
    ..
    Sun Belt Conference: Total Revenue $146.9 million in 2011-12.
    Per-school average of $18.4 million in total athletic revenue.
    Louisiana-Lafayette: $15.3M

    Conference USA: Total revenue $337.5 million in 2011-12.
    Per-school average of $24.1 million in total athletic revenue.
    ..
    At some point out in the distance a school like Georgia State or Texas State might find its way into a major conference due to its alumni base (both schools have around 30,000 under-grad and graduate students) and proximity to a major television market (Atlanta and San Antonio, respectively). But for now, they'll have to climb up the ladder just to get on a big conference's radar.
