    New TV Deal

    Doesn't look like it is completely done yet, but I like an extra $5MM per year...

    I hope we don't lock it in yet. Improve our stock with some other schools first. We have 4 years to do that.

    Edit: Unless the contract is written in such a way that it will be heavily reevaluated if conference makeup changes.

    Those people hoping it'd be a a tripling of the previous deal will be disappointed, but it does clock in at around double.

    Re: New TV Deal

    Love the increased money, but legitimately curious as to why it's less than the Pac-12 deal? I thought the Big 12 was a better TV draw. Not complaining, but it's about $1 million less per school:

    Under the new terms, each Big 12 school will average just under $20 million a year. Schools in the Pac-12, which also partnered with ESPN and Fox to generate its record $3 billion deal over 12 years, will average nearly $21 million per school.

    Honestly, I'd pass and go to open market. Let NBC or Fox drive up the price, but wtf do I know.

    We'd have to wait 4 years to do that since the ESPN contract goes through 2016.

    I have to think that there's no way the Big XII would sign off on this deal unless the bolded part is true. Adding teams like Clemson, FSU, etc would dramatically increase the value of the conference, and we'd be fools to not demand more $$$ because of it.

    Yeah so? The Fox deal gives everyone a nice bump in the short term and then rob the bank in 2016.

    No doubt that adding particular teams add value, but at some point, you will get diminishing returns, and I think some conferences are starting to understand that. It is for these reasons, that I don't ever expect to see these super conferences - not of the five big (football conferences) that everyone fantasizes about.

    We could add Team 11 and 12, but if they only add - let's say, another 8 million dollars, each conference member's share could actually shrink. So, if maximizing shares is the only criteria, the conference will need to be very selective.

    ...like taking Clemson and FSU. Or Notre Dame.

    West coast advertising. Can't remember where I was reading it but it was an article about how the PAC12 can have such a good TV deal if their ratings aren't as good as Big 12 or SEC. The reasoning was a great commissioner who was able to get a better deal.

    But a key factor was that people in California and along the West coast were better people to advertise too because they spend more money and have more money on average than SEC states.

    List of U.S. states by income - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    PAC 12 states include Arizona(23), California(9), Colorado(13), Utah(14), Oregon(24), and Washington(11).

    SEC states include Louisiana(41), Alabama(46), Kentucky(47), Arkansas(48), Mississippi(50), Tennessee(44), South Carolina(42), and Florida (38).

    Looking at that list, you can totally understand why having PAC 12 games on your network would be great because people watching those games are more likely to buy something from a commercial.

    Re: New TV Deal

    I really hope that the Big12 at least contacted NBC/Comcast to gauge their interest for the contract in 2016. With the expiration of the ND contract and our ESPN contract, it was looking like a perfect fit. It really seems like they also want to get their NBCSports channel going. Getting the Big12 second tier rights would go along way in getting that to the mainstream.

    On the other hand, this is a guaranteed increase. The contract bubble may pop in the next few years and we may be left holding the bag. Considering where we were just 4 years ago, this is still a huge increase and allows us to be fully self sufficient and be competitive in coaching salaries.

    Tier 2 is locked in long-term with Fox.

    NBC does have enough other channels (w/ national NBC) to support a Tier 1 contract.
