    Report: Big East TV Contract to $460 Million

    Big East Conference TV Contract May Double to $460 Million, Analyst Says - Bloomberg

    Apparently Fox and ESPN got into a bidding war. Divided 17 ways, that's $27 million a year.

    I really wonder if we wouldn't have been better off in the Big East.

    How many years? Do the football schools get a bigger cut?

    Re: Report: Big East TV Contract to $460 Million

    I've been saying again and again that that B12 contract will be the largest one yet. Just the way these things go. The next one after the B12 will be bigger yet, etc. etc.

    Those thinking the B12 contract isn't going to be lucrative have their heads in the sand

    Re: Report: Big East TV Contract to $460 Million

    That number may be correct, or it could still be way off... They don't even have all the bids yet, so they are just estimating based upon the fact that they will have more bidders that the highest one may result in as big of an increase as the ACC saw.

    Either way, if the Big 12(-2) can't somehow manage a huge deal for the concept that we are better overall when dealing with Basketball & Football then we are in trouble...

    Re: Report: Big East TV Contract to $460 Million

    If Fox and ESPN are willing to pay that much for basically West Virginia football and the best basketball in America, they will pay big time for one of the best football conferences. I can't wait until the Big 12 deal comes through. That will be a great, great day for Iowa State University of Science and Technology.

    We gonna get paid.

    Are you saying we are a better basketball conference?

    No... I am saying that we are better overall when you combine football and basketball. We are not better in basketball, but we definitely aren't terrible; and we are definitely better in football and let's face it their football is not even that good...

    OK. I agree, actually, no I don't, their football is terrible right now.

    I thought about saying terrible, but figured they typically have one or two good teams a year that might be worth something...

    The only thing that helps the Big East and ACC is the shear number of people when compared to what the Big 12(-2) has for viewers... I hope that our overall competitiveness is able to overcome that difference.

    Re: Report: Big East TV Contract to $460 Million

    Is it not possible these networks are going to get a bit gassed by the time they come our way? The numbers they have thrown around at lower conferences are incredible, and Im starting to think that it may be exhausted when it is our turn.
