A guide to American college football, the multibillion-dollar business where the labor is free | Quartz


So where do those billions in revenue go?

In part to pay coaches (the highest-paid government official in many states is the football coach).

In part to subsidize other student sports that make less money. And in part on an arms race to build the best stadiums and training facilities, to attract the best athletes, to sustain the success of the football teams, to generate more revenue, to pay the best coaches… and so on.
