Alabama Ticket Waiting List Surpasses 10,000 ...

Alabama which does not use public money to subsidize athletics, isn't spending foolishly. According to figures filed with the U.S. Department of Education, Alabama has a football season-ticket waiting list of more than 10,000, and football-only revenue topped $57 million for the 2007-08 school year.

Earlier this year, the Alabama state university system's trustees approved earlier a $80.6 million project that will expand Alabama's Bryant-Denny Stadium to accommodate more than 101,000 fans. Alabama's stadium expansion should more than pay for itself.

Gap growing ever wider between college sports' haves, have-nots
