NCAA Football 2023/2024 Season Catch All!

As college sports faces more change, is private equity money coming in?

There are only two certainties in college sports -- sweeping change is coming, and no one knows what it will look like.

Amid this backdrop, a new market force has emerged as potentially interested in the future of college sports. From email inboxes to Zoom meetings to glad-handing at high-end events, representatives from private equity and other types of outside financial entities have emerged as interested in the chaos of college sports.

"What are you looking for if you are private equity?" asked an industry source. "You are looking for a poorly managed business that nevertheless has a strong market. That's the definition of college athletics."

NIL won't ruin college football.

Private equity firms will ABSOLUTELY ruin CFB.
