    TV Revenue Sharing?

    In the weeks preceding the final put down of the recent almost-insurrection, it was widely and loudly rumored that UT was willing to vote to evenly share the Tier 1 and 2 revenue. For awhile, it was even bandied about that they would share 50% of their tier 3 LHN revenue.

    Is any of this revenue sharing talk still going on now that things have settled down? If so, when might we expect a public airing of the decision about tv revenue sharing?

    Re: TV Revenue Sharing?

    I think the PAC-12 making their announcement that they weren't expanding took away the leverage that Oklahoma had. I don't think the threat of Missouri leaving for the SEC will be enough of a push to get Texa$$ to make any revenue sharing concessions.

    --Dodds said Texas is in favor of sharing revenue from Tier 1 TV rights to help build stability into the conference. Orangebloods.com reported nearly a month ago that Texas was willing to end the unequal revenue sharing that has ruled the conference for all of its 16 years.
    The league already has equal revenue sharing in the Tier 2 agreement signed in April with Fox for 13 years and $1.17 billion.

    But I would give up hoping on the LHN revenue sharing. For one, it was part of the deal that kept them in the B12 last year.

    Texas also is free to continue pursuing its own TV network.
    They have put years and millions into developing the LHN which finally came about.

    "UT has done its due diligence on this. They've been looking at it for years. They've got a great number of large markets in which they are the No. 1 team," said A.J. Maestas, president of Navigate Marketing, a Chicago-based firm whose services include helping colleges assess the potential value of marketing and media rights.

    Plus out of the 15 million per year, 4 million goes back to IMG. so it leaves 11 million. Out of that, 5 million goes back to the Academic side of the School for the next 5 years.

    The $300 million, 20-year contract Texas signed with ESPN has become important to UT's board of regents, sources said, because in an age of higher education cutbacks, UT athletics is contributing $5 million per year to academics in the first five years of the deal.

    Which leaves 6 million. I do not see the University of Texas giving up 5 million in academics so even if they divided the rest up equally, it wouldn't be that much to the schools.

    Basically they might as well ask for equal revenue on T-shirt sales seeing that the LHN will be watched by UT fans and subscriptions paid for by UT fans.

    Not if they find way to force it on a lower tier package. Then all will get to pay a portion of the carriage fees.

    Re: TV Revenue Sharing?

    #1 People always make it seem like Texas unilaterally imposed the conference's rev sharing method and the rule about schools controlling their own 3rd tier rights - these were all voted on and approved by the conference members.

    #2 Texas will leave the Big 12 before it shares one cent of the LHN money.
