Big 12 ADs discussing pros, cons of staying at 10 - Yahoo! Sports
Forbes recently projected revenue conferences would generate this school year through network television deals, bowl games and NCAA tournaments. The Big 12 is expected to earn $262 million, which averages to $26.2 million for each of the 10 schools - the highest per-team average of any conference.
According to Forbes, Big Ten teams would an average of $25.8 million from a $310 million poll, followed by the Pac-12 ($25.3 million), ACC ($24.4 million). The SEC, which expanded to 14 teams with the additions this school year of former Big 12 members Texas A&M and Missouri will average about $19.3 million per team.
Woah, the ACC has better TV deals than the SEC? Who knew?
"We're not here to have a Norman Vincent Peale "Power of Positive Thinking" get together or a Georgia Tech Football Revival Meeting."
Just in case Jim gets a wild hair and shuts us down abruptly, in the words of the cook on the Edmund Fitzgerald, "Fellas it's bin good t'know ya!"
If you look at it from a TV revenue perspective I see why Tech is saying they will stay put. Only a 2 million dollar difference ?
That difference may be eaten up after you consider the other sports and the travel expense.
The ACC appears to be in much better condition if the numbers are right, than I thought. At that rate our debt could be paid off in 5 years if we decided to do so. Looks like the AD is in better condition than we have been led to think.
