SEC revenue distribution helps MSU

June 11, 2014

Many college athletic conferences are trying to model theirs after the Southeastern Conference.
The SEC has showed on the field and in the classroom that it is the one to beat, but it's also a conference many schools would like to join.
For those who are already in the SEC, they are thankful.
That thanks gets bigger and bigger each year when the league redistributes revenue to all the 14 member schools. 
The league office announced in May that the SEC was going to distribute a total of $309.6 million, the highest ever in the history of the SEC. That total includes $292.8 million from the conference office and another $16.8 million from the 2013-14 college football bowl games. Each school will get roughly $20.9 million. 
Mississippi State is thankful to be a part of a league that looks out for its members.
"That's what's neat about the SEC – we share equally," MSU Executive Associate Athletic Director Duncan McKenzie said. "The only editorial payment that you would get would be if you played a Thursday night (football) game or a nontraditional, which is a non-Saturday game, you get a little extra money for an inconvenience fee, but everything else is shared equally.
"When other teams go to bowl games, they get to keep a share of that, but a big part of that goes into the SEC and we all share that equally."
