New Big 12 TV deal nets $20M per team

239

A lot of people scoffed at the financial projections of a Big 12 with the additon of Clemson, FSU and others. Well, the Big 12, with just 10 members and no championship game, is about to net a TV deal that will result in $20M per school. That does NOT include the money schools can make for third tier rights. UF's third tier rights net them $10M, so even conservatively you can assume that's another $5M which we can't earn in the ACC. So if you are keeping track, the ACC will have to DOUBLE it's current deal by the addition of Syracuse and Pitt. Anyone thinking that is happening, considering ESPN has them locked up for 12 years? So if the Big 12 is at $25M per school now, do people still think the addition of FSU, Clemson, Miami and others wouldn't push them toward $30M+ a year? Pretty good for an "unstable conference". If FSU (and Clemson, Miami, Maryland, etc) aren't in discussions with the Big 12 as rumored, they are basically opting out of big boy football. (Standard caveat - uless of course ND is locked and loaded to the ACC)
