THE TWO UTES IN QUESTION: In Salt Lake City, Lya Wodraska reports the majority of the Univ. of Utah’s revenue during FY '11-12 "came from the Pac-12’s TV deal with ESPN and Fox." The school's athletic department made $4,079,028 in revenue during '11-12, a period "in which they received only a partial cut of new money brought into the league that was generated by their move from the Mountain West Conference to the Pac-12." While Utah’s amount is "far below the profit enjoyed by Stanford and Oregon, which led the league with $15,651,602 and $15,200,450 in revenue, respectively, Utah’s haul is much higher than it was getting in the MWC, where $1.2 million was considered a good amount" (SALT LAKE TRIBUNE, 5/31).
