Pines do you even bother to read the articles posted here for the last few months? Can you read?
It is not some mysterious assumption that Big 12 teams will make 20 million per year in TV money. This is a well established fact. OU will make an additional 7 million on 3rd tier rights with Fox. This is not debatable, this is in black and white and anyone who is literate and coherent can see it.
“Oklahoma will see $7M a year from TV deal”
“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.??http://www.operationsports.com…-xii-bowl-game/
As has been explained several thousand times, the champs bowl will pay out 80 million dollars, same as the Rose Bowl. For those bad with math, that is 40 million to the SEC and 40 million to the Big 12. In the case of the Big 12 current enrollment that is 4 million dollars per team, 3 million plus for SEC teams. ESPN has agreed to telecast it from 2015 through 2026.
That is about the time Swofford’s chicken 17 million contract runs out. If you are not following or you are a hard learner, the champ bowl alone is almost one fourth of the entire ACC chicken payout. You will notice we don’t see many numbers for the Miami car jack bowl and how much the respective teams will make or how much Swofford will award Notre Dame for the “prestige” they have brought to the ACC. It is a cinch it won’t be 80 million like the Rose or Champs, who make up the big 4.??This was what the 50 million exit fee was all about, a line in the sand, a legal dare.
