THE MARKET FOR CUPCAKES. Phil Miller of The Sports Economist picks up our coverage of Delaware State losing twice in a day.
Why is it good to be the cupcake? Because they get paid hundreds of thousands of dollars to come to your place for a shellacking. Moreover, according to press reports, because of the added 12th game in D-1 football (or FBS, or whatever you want to call that rose), the demand for cupcakes has risen, giveing rise to bigger payouts to the cupcakes.
But selling wins can be hazardous to your players.

The comic strip exaggerates, only slightly. (I've had numerous occasions to review the casualty list after a Huskie visit to Iowa City or Columbus or Gainesville.)
