    PODCAST: Williams/Walters/Dave Z talk new TV deal & more

    Here's the podcast from yesterday's 2nd hour on the KXNO afternoon show. Dave Z and I interviewed the Voice of the Cyclones, John Walters. We discussed the new Big 12 TV deal, Will Clyburn and the spring game.

    Apologize to Dan Beebe? Are you kidding me? Yeah, let's give props to someone for accomplishing a deal only because he had a fire lit under his ***, after he pulled his head out of it.

    It's easy to grow some balls when you're almost out of a job.

    4-5 years from now we will be complaining about how bad the deal is. The timeframe is way too long for the $ amount. I would hope there are escalator clauses or something.

    We'll see. The nice thing is that this is just second tier broadcast money. First tier rights are up for renegotiation in 2015-2016. That should provide an additional influx of cash. And Sam Mellinger from the KC Star made an interesting point yesterday:

    "Beebe also pulled a subtle bit of brilliance in making sure the deal expires one year after the SECís television contracts. This way, whoever is running the Big 12 at that time can use the SECís next contract as a framework for negotiations."

    So while 13 years seems like a long time in the world of escalating TV contracts, it might work out well for the Big XII.
