    Re: Cyclone Roundup: 10-4 Edition

    Why is the Big XII's first tier rights so little compared to everyone else?

    It's because it is an old television contract.

    When the Big 12's tier 1 right come up for bid in 2014, that number will increase dramatically.

    Old contract. Everyone else has negotiated a new contract. The Big XII will see a nice increase in the first tier rights when the new contract is signed.


    I don't think I'm alone when I say I'd like to see more and more planets fall under the ruthless domination of our solar system.

    I guess I understand that but two years before we negotiated our contract the Big 10 signed a ten year deal for a billion for first tier rights.

    Re: Cyclone Roundup: 10-4 Edition

    It's not unrealistic to think that the first tier deal could increase as much as 6 or 7 times.

    May my postings be polite and not misunderstood. (And hopefully funny on occasion.)
