    Big 12 to meet to consider 6 new teams(PAC)

    Ole George gets stabbed in the back by his Alliance partner and turns his anger onto the Big 12? The Pac-10 is doomed. All destabilizing forces in the PAC are directly connected to the B1G.

    5 to 6 years? What?

    I agree with you. Now convince me why ESPN would renegotiate.

    I have read that in multiple places too.

    The contract with ESPN might be null and void, but the GOR still stands. The GOR is between the schools and the conference. The ESPN contract is between the conference and the network.

    University attorneys have bene looking at this GOR since the OUT announcement. If this were truly unenforceable, it would have already been challenged.

    Big 12 to meet to consider 6 new teams(PAC)

    I don't think Notre Dame will join a conference until they have no other option. I've also read that ND's contract with the ACC prevents them from joining another conference until 2036. Not sure how true that is, or if there is a buyout, etc. Fans say the next dominoes won't fall until ND makes...

    Big 12 to meet to consider 6 new teams(PAC)

    There's a CBS Sports video out there with Dennis Dodd that alludes to the B1G not knowing what value those 4 schools (Oregon, Washington, Stanford, and Cal) add. It's certainly not the $80-$100 million. Therefore, they won't be looking to add those schools until their new media contract expires...

    Big 12 to meet to consider 6 new teams(PAC)

    Kevin Warren told @ActionNetworkHQ besides ND Irish a "handful of schools" would add value to B1G. Sources said others considered: Oregon, Washington, Stanford, Cal, Miami & FSU. "We’re not messing around,” Warren said. "I don’t want to be Sears & Roebuck" Evidently, they are messing around...

    Gunnar Gundy

    They should be getting some snaps in the Arkansas-Pine Bluff for certain and hopefully some against Central Michigan.

    He's most likely gone before Gundy retires.

    Pac 12 ESPN Offer

    But that was with USCLA in the conference. If they were 40% of the value that leaves the net as $20.16. So this low ball offer is roughly a 20% increase. A 50% increase would put them at $30 million.

    Pac 12 ESPN Offer

    When looking for the breakdown of the conference payout I found this, https://sicem365.com/s/10447/the-new-big-12s-revenue-potential-six-additions-instead-of-four#:~:text=Lump sum payouts to the league for the,CFP distributed $78.3 million to the Big 12. Which has a good breakdown, however...

    Pac 12 ESPN Offer

    Seems low to me, but our own media deal with ESPN and FOX paid out $22 million this last year (21/22). The additional $20 million came from CFB playoffs ($8 million for New Years Day 6 bowl games), bowl games, NCAA tournament, etc. So this might not be too far off for the real value post USCLA.
