“Oklahoma will see $7M a year from TV deal” That is a total of 14.5 million for what FSU is now getting 6.5 million for as the ACC has the television portion of their tier rigthts. Add in OUs other 20 million for tier one and two and a shot at 6 million for being in the champs bowl ...... nobody in the ACC can keep up with that and I am pretty sure Clemson jumps if FSU decides to overturn this thing in court. By the way maryland voted no on the 50 million also. What is up with Barker?
If OU goes to the champs bowl that is 40.5 million plus ticket sales. It is where big boy football is headed and those left out are finished.
“The University of Oklahoma’s block of branded programming on Fox Sports Net will result in upward of $7 million in new annual revenue”
The ACC’s Third Tier Rights And Why They’re Killing The Conference
FSU board of trustees chairman Allan Bense sees the $50 million exit fee as unenforceable and does not believe it would hold up in court. He thinks it looks like and unenforceable penalty. It looks like showdown at high noon. We don’t know at this point whether or not FSU will take their shot in court but mean while according to this the FSU administrators are continuing to look into the advantages of moving on financially.
A cost benefit analysis is still being run and FSU legal experts are looking into the legality of the new exit fee. The air of uncertainty continues.
Spetman was given a one year contract only with no raise and as the writer suggests, it seems to signal Barron might be looking for an athletic director with more experience who could navigate the rapids of conference change.
Syracuse and Pitt are excellent examples of another mouth to feed. FSU is second to USC in national appeal over the last few years even being down. A championship game and the Champ bowl with the SEC is a mega revenue expander for both the SEC and the Big 12.
“But for schools like Florida State, the Big XII is still attractive as it may be the only opening into what could soon become a very exclusionary club.
Remember when some people thought that college football was headed towards four 16 team conferences? Well, those four conferences now have been identified. Now it’s just a matter of how many schools get to play in this new world.”?
Dennis Dodd?@dennisdoddcbs??This Big 12/SEC announcement absolutely consolidates power, money in top four leagues. Sugar now mirrors Rose in tradition, money, power,???
Matt Hayes?@Matt_HayesSN??Anyone who thinks this won’t lead to more expansion is nuts. It’s on the horizon—and it’s unstoppable.???
Stewart Mandel?@slmandel??There may be no more official AQ/non-AQs, but there is now an unofficial line in the sand between SEC/Big 12, Big Ten/Pac-12 & everyone else???I also seriously doubt the SEC would align with the Big 12 like this if they opposed Slive in his quest to keep the playoffs to the 1-4 schools only.
