    Remember, this is a good thing for the Big 12. It will shoot up our league's tier one price when it comes up for bidding in 2015.

    Re: Pac-12 to sign $2.7 billion deal

    225 mill per year that puts each schools share at 18.25 mill year. So if the B12 got a something equivalent does that put us at about 24 mill a year? I don't know what the new FOX deal gives exactly.

    Anyone catch this?

    Fox picked up football and basketball rights. It will carry football games on its Fox broadcast channel in primetime and on FX.
    Looks like Fox is ready to directly compete with primetime ABC/ESPN football on Saturday night.

    ABC has also committed to show P10 Saturday night games according to the article. Not sure how that is going to work out.

    That is a weird scenario. I've wondered for the last year when Fox has been opening the checkbook for conferences, why they stick all the games on FSN and not have games on Fox. College football is one of the most popular sports in America, why not put a prime time game on Fox if you have deals with both the Big 12 and Pac 12.

    ABC also shows Big 12 prime time games. Would the conferences not want two games going at the same time on two different channels? Maybe they could rotate it, Pac 12 on ABC one Saturday and Big 12 on Fox and then flip them the next week.

    Because it would interfere with their regular broadcasts of COPS and America's Most Wanted...?

    Yep, you just summed up my point perfectly. Let's see on a Saturday night, Fox can show reruns of Glee or Two and a Half Men or have Oregon vs. Stanford or Oklahoma vs. Texas A&M. I wonder what will get better ratings. I hope Fox will do this and put games on the main channel, more options to watch games, the better

    and i love how everyone will keep insisting that kids go to college for an education, and scholarship is enough. I would have agreed until the Big 10 network was formed and now all these new TV deals. Its about money for everyone but the kids that play... interesting.

    Yeah, cuz those kids that play aren't well compensated to the tune of $40,000+/year and a free degree.

    Incorrect, alot of that money will go toward facility improvements for kids in non-rev sports.

    I'm guessing this is all 3 tiers of broadcast rights, too. We got a lot of money for Tier II alone.

    FOX is in the difficult position because of the games they can air. Disney owns ABC and ESPN, giving ABC the ability to pick and choose the highest profile games and they can select as many games as possible to cover as many as 6 timeslots (ex. 11 AM, 2 PM, 5 PM, 7 PM, 9 PM, 11 PM) and air those games on as many as 5 channels (ABC, ESPN, ESPN 2, ESPNU, ESPN Classics)

    FOX has lost out on this ability by getting the leftovers of the Big 12 and PAC 10 to air on FOX Sports channels - these games do not draw as many viewers and pale in comparison to viewership the Big 10 Network currently has.

    By FOX getting first-tier PAC 10 games, this allows them to beat-out Disney for the high-profile games (USC-Oregon, Stanford-USC, Stanford-Notre Dame) and air them on a NATIONAL network, increasing the number of homes the game can be watched in which should also reflect increased advertising revenue for FOX. This is a very good deal and can only mean increased visibility for ISU athletics in the near-future.
