How much did GT spend on football ???

Interesting article centered on West Virginia and their football program. However notice this comment -

"WVU generated $13,848,140 from football that year and spent $6,155,525. That resulted in a net profit of $7,692,615 toward support of the school's other sports teams.

The only BCS schools that spent less that year were Georgia Tech ($5,829,521 expenses; $12,218,121 revenues), Missouri ($4,472,374 and $10,357,568) and Mississippi State ($5,766,859 and $11,461,784).
