What do you know? I'm right again. UConn football is worthens f millions of earned media. We even get some from UConn-ECU.

If this nonsense were true why would a school just hire troll farms to tweet about their school all day and the value is essentially infinite.

Yet they don’t. Weird.

Sure - if you tried to buy that airtime / exposure that is what it would have cost (assuming the numbers are right). But there is a point where additional spend wouldn't give you any return. So that value isn't helpful. What would a school actually spend for whatever exposure they need? That's really the question at hand.

Successful teams end up with more exposure than they would have ever paid for - or need.

Well AD Dave had stopped twitting.

If we assume that the opposite of whatever he does is, in fact, right then...

I mean in all fairness, it is just quoting a study that was commissioned by UCF. Not surprising they’d maybe polish those numbers a bit.
Or... Forbes which in theory is a legitimate publication partaking in journalism... could publish an article that is attached to reality rather than reprinting a nonsensical press release.

Not that it’s ‘important’ but some people will believe it and that’s embarrassing for them and Forbes.

This is pretty par for the course with Forbes.

With all our bad press are we actually rich?
There is no such thing as bad publicity*.

*Unless we're talking about recruiting, selling tickets, winning, getting teams to play against us here, conference realignment, Rentschler Field budget issues, dropping football, AAC media contract value, food truck sales, pigeon poo cleaning services, LAZ parking staffing, Silver Lane economic impact, on-campus stadium debates, Cabella's fish pond quality, charcoal grilling, etc...
