The Effects of Conference Realignment on NCAA Athletic Departments
April 13, 2015 Jared Pincin Accepted Peer-Reviewed Papers

Written with Adam Hoffer

Published in Applied Economics Letters


This study uses a panel of NCAA Division I athletic department revenue and expenditure data from 227 public colleges and universities to empirically investigate the effects of conference realignment over the period 2006-2011. The results show that schools moving into automatic-qualifying conferences experienced nearly $12.15 million in increased revenue, nearly matched by $10.12 million in added expenditures. Schools moving into any FBS conference saw revenues increase by $6.43 million, with expenses growing $5.03 million. Schools switching conferences to a non-FBS conference did not see a statistically significant change in revenues or expenses. Schools with football programs saw revenues increase by $2.94 million and profits increase by close to $1 million. Despite the increase in revenues, no change to institutional subsidies was observed.
