Now THAT's a reasonable theory.


I would give or take some extra coin for larger alumni base. However, I find it difficult to believe those schools have more fans. And fans, graduates or not, are the ones who buy the merch and tickets and watch the games on TV. I personally know hundreds of non VT grads who watch every game on TV and attend most home games. Not sure how big Minnesotta's fan base is. I would call FSU and Florida a wash. And I'm pretty sure there's more Clemson and Tar Heel fans around than Gamecocks and Wildcats, though they have their pockets in their home states.

But yes, I would give a bit of slack for larger alumni bases. I do not feel that should amount to ten to twenty million extra dollars each and every year.
