    Why Big12 is at 10 teams

    Forbes: Big Ten tops revenue list but Big 12 richest league per school - KansasCity.com

    Greatest revenue of all conferences per school. Speaks for itself.

    Having 90% of your teams in a bowl game really helps.

    I was always under the impression that most schools spend almost their entire bowl payout on travel, etc. With the exception of BCS games there is very little bowl money that goes back to the conference. Anyone have insight on this?

    Re: Why Big12 is at 10 teams

    At first glance, $26.2M for B12 vs. $25.8M for B10 does look that big. Then you read this part of the article...

    The Big 12 figure also doesn’t include third-tier television rights, which are controlled by the schools. Texas’ ESPN-based Longhorn Network is worth $300 million over 20 years. The Jayhawk Network added some $6.5 million to Kansas’ coffers in 2012, according to federal papers filed by the university.
    It really makes the difference stand out. When KU is making almost $7M more than any team in B10, things are good.

    Pretty accurate I think but all bowl money is put into a pool and divided out. Any way you put it, the Big 12 is rich, *****.

    Another place that hurts the pocketbook for bowls is the ticket allotment. If the school doesn't sell all of their allotment, they have to eat that cost. Not a problem for us this year!

    That's one advantage the Big 12 has. We may never have a conference network because our most valuable team has their own but we can each have our own also and you can't do that in the Big 10. KU made 6.5 million on their network and from what I've heard that's about to go up quite a bit. They are breaking ground this year for the new track, softball and soccer facilities and the next big announcement is the football stadium renovations. It's good to be in the Big 12 right now.

    Any idea how much we bank off of our 3rd tier network?

    I thought this was going to be a thread where I got to say "Karma for making fun of the Big 10 not being able to count for the last two decades."

    After things looking pretty bleak recently for us in the Big 12, we certainly landed on our feet!

    Re: Why Big12 is at 10 teams

    Before you pay yourself on your back, remember that the big 12 tv deal is new, the other conferences are closer or in the midst of renegotiations...so hence, this is but temporary and ultimately meaningless.

    Meaningless . . . like our new jumbotron and training facility?

    Otherwise, good point about the contracts of the other conferences.
