@DavidTeelatDP writes ACC Competing like never before, despite revenue gap.


Ah the esteemed @DavidTeelatDP writes an article that nails the current state of the ACC – Despite revenue gap, ACC competing nationally like never before.

A highlight from the piece that sums things up.

Long-term, the ACC can’t afford annual disparities such as 2015-16, when the SEC’s average distribution was $40.42 million, the Big Ten’s $34.8 million and the ACC’s $23.8 million. Short-term they are manageable.

Indeed, despite falling behind the SEC and Big Ten as their cable channels prospered, the ACC has enjoyed a four-year run unsurpassed in its history.

I’ve said on twitter that Florida, Florida State and Wake Forest were the only schools in the country to win a bowl game, make the NCAA basketball tournament, and make the baseball super regionals.

From Teel’s article, Wake Forest had the smallest athletic revenue in the power 5. I’ll never say money doesn’t matter. It absolutely does, but it doesn’t guarantee winning.
