The author is this article (and from his other work) has some sort of strange ax to grind with college football, and has a clear agenda. Sure, football is expensive and most schools operate in the red, but how many activities of this nature (sports, college theater or band etc.) are designed to make money? College sports are intended to enrich the educational experience of it's participants and spectators, and provide community relations, alumni connections and often marketing for the institution. It's not a source of revenue for all but a few.

While football may be the most expensive, its also the most popular. Football typically draws far more fans to campus than any other sport, and often many other sports combined. Football ROI is still very good when compared to other sports, despite the cost.
