This is phenomenal. Almost $1B and nobody is even close.
These guys could double their money every 6-8 years if they just put it in an equity index. Guys like Julio (who has earned $125M in salary / bonus so far) could literally be billionaires fairly quickly. That figure doesn't include endorsements or other business earnings.It wouldn't surprise me if you calculated the money made by all Alabama players starting with Coach Sabans first year team and recruits if the number wasn't well north of 2B! I was bored last week and started looking at spotrac.com. Forget the active players just look at the number of millionaires and the money they've made after playing for Alabama. It's an astronomical amount. Its the most of any school by far. Even if they only played a few years many of the players got a great start in life.
I saw this list a few years ago and Cal was #1. It was all Aaron Rodgers with his multiple big contracts. (Still is for Cal.) Bama was around 4th as Julio and most of the other big names were still on their rookie contracts. I think Bama is safe for a while at the top. Another awesome legacy from CNS!What surprises me is Cal at #2.
