we need 12 games. Big 12 has an obligation to its TV partners to provide "x" number of games. If Oklahoma State or any other team who doesnt produce enough tv games, should get any cut in revenue taken out of their share.

WVU is ready and willing to play 12 games. It will be hard to get good tv matchups with the other conferences being such wussies.

WVU could still play Pitt, Navy, and E. Kentucky ooc.

Pitt is apparently willing to play WVU as its plus 1 game.

WVU-navy could be a possible TV game.

there are already teams that are defying their conferences and scheduling games. WVU will play 12 games, even if the rest of the big 12 plays 9 or 10. WVU will play its big 12 schedule on the dates the big 12 assigns, but the big 12 has no control over wvu's ooc schedule.

Friendly bet? WVU plays 12 games in 2020 and I change my profile pic to WVU mascot/logo of your choice. If they don't, you put up an OSU mascot/logo of my choosing. Deal?

Ill take your deal on a modified basis. The big 12's TV partners need 57 televised games. A conference only schedule doesnt get you there.

My bet is the Big 12 will either have teams play some conference teams twice, or well have a plus 2 scenario that gives the big 12 11 games. We still may get 12, but 11 is more likely.

To make sure I'm tracking, you're saying WVU probably won't play 12 games in 2020. But, you'd be willing to bet on 11 games?

Yes, I'm dead certain the big 12 will meet the 57 game tv requirement-to get the full payout due them.
They may be able to do that with a plus 1 scenario, but not with teams like Kansas iowa state, and Oklahoma state playing the 3 sisters of the blind.

WVU would have 2 tv games, most likely Marshall, cinn. or pitt(pick 2).
OU and Texas get TV even with crap teams.

But yeah, im willing to be that wvu plays 11 games this season-if there is a season.

You come out all blustery and then keep hedging...

First...

How many games does WVU play in 2020? No hedging. You pick 11 or 12 and I'll take that bet.

Eleven for the bet but WVU's AD came out today, Sunday, July 2, 2020, and said WVU is still planning on a full 12 game schedule regardless of what others do. Shrug. WVU's Ad has balls. Bowlsby cant tell him what to do with ooc scheduling. and neither can Texas. WVU doesn't have that lay down and be a floormat when Texas speaks like the rest of the Big 12.

We entered this week still wanting to play all twelve games. We understand that the conference portion is very important and we have to make sure that we get that right. With other athletic directors, I do think that they are optimistic they will play starting September 5th.”

No one is afraid of TV deals

They’ll do what they think best to get as many games as possible.
All conferences so far have determined that conference only is the tool to that end (other than ACC +1)
I’ll back up Psych on the bet. Big 12 will do at most 9+ 1

No one is afraid of the tv deals? no, smart people want to fulfill those contracts to get money.
The Power 5 is a money machine. If the NCAA tries to slow it down, the power 5 will break away. Ive been saying it. There will be college football this fall, covid be damned. too much cash left on the table to cancel it.

Which has ZERO to do with will WVU playing more than 10 games THIS year. Can't you stay on topic of the bet ?

____Yes__________. Nolaeer

BTW a trusted source at WVU said 12 games is now a dark horse, and 9 +1 and 9 +2 have different factions supporting them

FWIW, Texas favors 9 + 2

Since math obviously isn't a strong suit for Oklahoma State grads, let me help you:
9 conference games is 45 games total
1 non conference home game for all 10 teams is 55 games total
Need two more games to get to 57
