A great deal.
I’m not talking about the millions and millions of dollars the NCAA receives from sponsors and TV deals, nor the millions of people who watch games on television.
I am talking about how the NCAA and the teams it oversees are valued.
This is where the vast majority of revenue comes from, and how much it costs to operate.
For the NCAA, which was founded in 1932 and is in its ninth year of existence, the revenue it earns is staggering.
As we’ve previously reported, its operating budget for the current season stands at nearly $2.7 billion.
That’s almost four times as much as the national television networks that comprise ESPN and CBS and Fox.
That money goes to cover salaries and expenses for the players, coaches, athletic directors and other staff.
It also supports scholarships for college sports teams that get paid in cash, which helps fund the vast array of programs that go on to win championships.
This year, the schools that are not in the NCAA tournament were not included in the total.
It’s not clear what percentage of the money that comes from those tournaments goes to the teams that make it to the NCAA championship game.
And this is where we’ll begin to see some of the most interesting stories.
In a recent piece, The Wall Street Journal examined how the $3.8 billion annual operating budget of the NCAA is distributed among its 29 member schools.
In its most recent budget, the NCAA said that the schools with the highest total operating expenses (including TV, hotel, parking and ticketing) are at the top of the list.
For comparison’s sake, the average operating expense of the teams at the bottom of the table is $3,933.
That means the teams on the bottom spend about three times more than the teams in the top 10.
Of course, the $2 billion in operating money is a fraction of the total revenue.
And while the revenue is growing, the operating budget is shrinking.
According to the numbers, the annual operating deficit is down to $1.9 billion this season, and that number is projected to fall in the coming years.
The NCAA also released the numbers for the 2016-17 fiscal year.
That number includes the NCAA Tournament, which is a major draw and is scheduled for March.
The total revenue for the NCAA’s four conferences is about $3 billion, which includes ticket sales, concessions and other revenue sources.
The conference revenues have increased slightly over the past two years, but the conference conferences are still far from where they were in the previous fiscal year, which ended in March.
And it’s the same story for men’s basketball, which has seen a slight increase over the last two years.
For women’s basketball the numbers are much different.
In 2015-16, the total revenues were about $2 million, and the conference revenues were $1 million.
This fiscal year is the third consecutive year the conference has been on top of that number.
In the last three years, the conference revenue has declined by nearly 20 percent.
This time, it’s projected to decline by 25 percent.
For all of the conference’s sports, the overall revenues have been flat, with the exception of women’s college basketball.
So how did the revenue decline over the years?
There’s no easy answer, and there’s no question that the financial struggles for schools that compete in the tournament are the most significant factor.
The financial picture is complex.
The bottom line is that the NCAA has had to make tough decisions in the last decade.
In addition to a reduction in the amount of money the NCAA makes from ticket sales and other sources, the tournament has been cut in half.
The number of teams in each conference has shrunk from eight to six.
And as revenue declines, the budgets for other sports are slashed.
In other words, the money the schools are earning is shrinking, while the money they are making from television contracts and merchandise sales is growing.
In general, the amount the schools earn from television is falling as well.
For example, the last time the NCAA made TV money was in 2007-08, when it made about $600 million.
That was a year after the tournament ended.
And the last conference tournament before that was in 2000-01.
The average payout from TV for a conference was $3 million in 2016-16.
This season, the median payout was $1,200.
That represents a drop of nearly 40 percent from the previous year.
In order to make up for this, schools are cutting back on travel and other activities that are essential to the tournament.
That includes a reduction of about $700 million from travel to the Tournament, a reduction that is expected to remain in place through the 2018-19 season.
And in order to compete in these big events, many teams are also cutting back.
The biggest cuts, however, are in academics.
Since the 1980s, the financial picture has gotten more complicated.
The money schools make from scholarship payments has dropped as
