The Grant of Rights, as the Big 12 has it anyways, does not preclude a Big 12 team from leaving.

If a big12 team leaves, they lose all their tv rights for the remainder of the contract and they have to pay a fee

No b12 team can afford to leave with the exception of Texas and Oklahoma

This is true and ironically I think this was done to keep Texas in the Big 12. They are the one that could leave without batting an eye should a better situation arise.

Yeah and if Texas (whose athletic dept. Made almost $200 million alone last year) were to leave, other schools would have a strong case to leave without being penalized.

Still think the ACC is stable?

Just being a part of the ACC championship game cost FSU half a million bucks: http://floridastate.rivals.com/content.asp?CID=1472519

Florida State took the trophy home from the 2012 ACC championship game in December.

It also brought back debt.

According to the school's income statement from the game, obtained by Warchant.com via public records request, Florida State lost more than $478,000 from its participation in the ACC championship in Charlotte, N.C., on Dec. 1.

About $440,000 of FSU's loss stems from dismal ticket sales for its matchup against 6-6 Georgia Tech. The league announced that 64,778 tickets were distributed, but Bank of America Stadium never reached half-capacity during FSU's 21-15 win. It was the first time in the game's three years in Charlotte that it wasn't labeled a sellout.


Associated Press
Florida State's income statement from the 2012 ACC championship game shows it lost $478,954.20 from its appearance.

Each season, the conference gives each division winner 10,000 tickets to sell at four different price points ranging from $40 to $150. According to FSU's ticket reconciliation form, Florida State sold just 2,033 tickets, totaling $185,210 in revenue.
Staying in the ACC is a financial disaster for the FSU program, university and its fanbase.

They lost money because their fans did not buy the tickets and travel to Charlotte. They would have lost more money if they had to travel to Dallas for a Big 12 Championship game or Indianapolis for a Big 10 Championship game. Therefore, they are making money by staying in the ACC vs the Big 12 or Big 10 because in those conferences they would have lost more money.

Losing money in college sports is nothing new, many schools lose money by going to bowl games. It has nothing to do with stability....

Almost official. When the C7 forms their own league, Depaul will be making more TV revenue than us

Brett McMurphy ‏@McMurphyESPN

ESPN on clock to keep Big East rights; NBC offers $20M-$23M year for 7 years; $2M per team/year http://espn.go.com/college-sports/st...er-sources-say

Quote:
The Big East's new $2 million per team deal is less than what the seven departing Catholic schools -- DePaul, Georgetown, Marquette, Providence, St. John's, Seton Hall and Villanova -- are projected to earn when they form their own league, sources told ESPN. Fox Sports is closing on a deal with the Catholic schools worth about $3 million for each, sources said.

The new league, yet to be formed, is expected to have 12-to-14 members. The most likely candidates to join the Catholic schools, sources have told ESPN, are Butler, Xavier, Creighton, Dayton, Saint Louis, Richmond and VCU.

Many schools are not Florida State.


A perennial top 25 historic program in FSU has seen a dramatic loss in revenue and football power ever since joining the ACC...Now they can't even sell out their allotted ticket amounts to Conference championship games. The status quo simply is not working for them nor has it been the last 5 years.

I am rooting for NBC in this one. If they win the rights to the big east, I can see ESPN telling the other conferences to take UC, UCONN, USF, etc. to further weaken their biggest competitors (NBC) premier league.
