It's interesting to note how much money the Duke Athletic Department brings in (and promptly puts right back into their basketball program).  There were 4 ACC schools below Georgia Tech in these rankings: Miami, Florida State (woah!) , NCSU, and Wake Forest. This is what happens when you have rich and snobby boosters. Also, the highest non-BCS school is TCU at #57 ($43,439,777)

Engineers are very stingy about their money.  They all want to make sure they get the highest quality product for their money (it's been ingrained in us for 4-6 years to maximize efficiency).  These are just a few quick thoughts I had while looking at this list. Can anybody pick up on other things with this list? Texas is rolling in cash!
