The NCAA is the 1%. [USA Today]

Although audited figures for its recently concluded 2012 fiscal year are pending, a USA TODAY Sports analysis has found, the NCAA now likely has more than $500 million in net assets. Among its unrestricted assets is an endowment fund of more than $260 million, more than double where it stood six years ago.

BCS style negative campaigning. [Yahoo Sports]

Kansas State (4): Ad opens with video of generic, cheering fans. Voice-over: "These are college football fans." Cut to video of listless, unenthusiastic fans. "These are college football fans watching Kansas State." Cut to grainy, black-and-white video of Bill Snyder on the sidelines, then slow-motion shot of tumbleweeds rolling along the prairie. "The Wildcats take after their 72-year-old coach, who is every bit as boring as the topography around Manhattan, Kansas." Cut to video of LSU’s ineptitude in the 2011 BCS Championship Game, then a video of quarterback Collin Klein overthrowing a receiver. "Wasn’t last year’s title game boring enough? Do we really want more of the same? Working-class Americans pay too much for cable and satellite TV to see Kansas State play for the national title. Take a stand and say no to the Wildcats."
