    Re: Doomsday Scenario: MWC or AAC?

    Texas and OU are not leaving within the next 8 years. And if they leave after that, the Big 12 is not dissolving.

    Re: Doomsday Scenario: MWC or AAC?

    Thoughtful might be taking it a bit too far. I have seen a lot of misinformation and opinion thrown out without much thought.

    Re: Expansion

    Also, for anyone wondering why it would take 8 teams to leave to dissolve the conference, see 1.5.2 (b) (2) of the following bylaws:

    When you think of Grant of Rights, think of property rights. Can someone come and take your property rights (non-government) without your consent? The answer is no. This works the same way. When...

    It will hold it together through the length of the contract. I agree with these points, but all this means is that if there are issues, then at the end (or close to the end) of the GOR, teams will...

    Re: Expansion

    Sorry, but it is not the same. With an exit fee, you can leave knowing an exact number that can be a starting point for negotiations. The exit fee was a part of the contract that said what happened...

    Re: Expansion

    ACC did not have a GOR when Maryland left. They added their GOR afterwards. The $31 mil was an exit fee, not a GOR settlement. A GOR has never been tested. (Nice Try, but have your facts straight...

    Re: COLUMN: Thank you, Oklahoma president

    Texas stands to make $35m by being in the Big 12 this year. OU will be making about $27-$29m a year. Add another ~$10m from CF Playoffs and Texas is at $45m and OU is at $37-39m. This is based on...

    Because the blogger wants to write about something and without actually understanding what GOR is, he just pulls a stupid statement out of his ***. Because without this stupid assumption, the rest...

    No, the author is clueless. Just because he writes that, you automatically believe it? The GOR is pretty solid.

    "And we already know the Grant of Rights the league has isn't worth the paper it's printed on if two teams opt to leave."

    Which did not include Tier 3 for Big 12. When you add Tier 3, Big 12 is higher. What do you not understand about that?

    Re: Expansion

    Big 12 was Tier 1 and 2.

    Big 10 was Tiers 1, 2 and 3.

    It is not apples to apples. You need to add Tier 3 for each individual school.

    What was ISU's Tier 3 income?

    Re: COLUMN: Thank you, Oklahoma president

    4x16 is a fictional concept made up by media. Conferences have never all been the same size and never will be without a governing body setting the conference membership.
