it didn't take long for Deion Sanders change Colorado football...
quote:

Athletic director Rick George told BuffZone.com that the program turned a $200,000 profit on the spring game from ticket sales alone. Add another $123,000 from merchandise sold and you have one of the most profitable days the program has ever seen.

“It was positive revenue for us and it was really good exposure for us to be on national TV,” George said. "“It was a good day for Colorado athletics.”

Deion puts on a good show, but in a Power5 conference, it’s all about wins. If he doesn’t win, his act will wear very thin, and soon.

Deion looks cool with the cowboy hat. Reminds me of Bum Phillips.

Awesome. Alabama makes that from a regular off season day of merchandise sales.

Surely, earning a spot in a big bowl game would net the school a bigger profit. It's been a while, but CU has been in New Year's Day type bowls before.

LSU spent that much in fines alone for rushing the field.

Man it’s going to be fun watching that ship sink. They’ve set expectations way too high.

I certainly hope he is smart enough to understand the difference between gross revenue and profit

$300k? Is that a big deal in college football? Is this satire?
