Published June 5, 2001
SEC Commissioner Roy Kramer said the conference will distribute about $78.1M to its 12 member schools in the revenue sharing plans for the '00-01 FY, which ends August 31. The $78.1M is the highest ever distributed in SEC history and represents a 6% increase from the '99-00 fiscal year, when $73.2M was paid out. The $78.1M was derived from $33.7M for football TV, $13.3M from bowls, $6.8M from the Football Championship, $8.9M from basketball TV, $3.4M from the SEC Men's Basketball Tournament and $12M from the NCAA Championships. About $6.5M was paid to each school (SEC).
