In the first numbers released since the addition of Texas A&M and Mizzou to the SEC, the league saw an increase of revenue upwards of $41 million, bringing their annual total to a cool $314.5 million.  But as impressive as those numbers are, the Big 10, whose reported revenue for the same period was $315.5 million, slightly edged them.

Despite the 15% increase, according to tax records the SEC is still operating at a $3.4 million deficit.

In the meantime, SEC commissioner received a $230,000 raise boosting his annual salary to $1.2 million.

It must be hard being a broke college athlete looking at commissioners, coaches and athletic directors live high off the hog based on your play while you and your family struggle financially.
