| No Comments | No TrackBacks
Once again, UK ranks among the top schools in the nation in merchandise royalties.

On Monday, the Collegiate Licensing Company released royalty rankings for the period from July 1, 2012 to June 30, 2013. UK comes in fifth, trailing only Texas, Alabama, Notre Dame and Michigan. A season ago, UK was a school-record third on the strength of the 2012 men's basketball national championship. UK is also one of six Southeastern Conference schools in the top 10 in the most recent rankings.

UK Athletics and the university share all merchandise royalties equally. UK Athletics is responsible for all costs associated with managing the licensing program and 90 percent of merchandise sold is athletic-related. Through the merchandise program, UK Athletics has contributed more than $10 million to the university during the Mitch Barnhart era.
