    Big East BB schools to pay $100 million for name

    Looks like the Big East FB schools are building quite a stockpile of cash...$100 million to give the BB schools the "Big East" name. Plus all the exit fees should be 60-70 million.

    Stinks that they're only going to be making $2 mil/team/yr for the new ESPN TV deal or else they might be able to lure some better schools their way...

    AP: Big East football schools will get approx. $100 mil in naming deal | CollegeFootballTalk

    Does this mean football schools lose BCS connections and become like the MAC?

    Amazing that they had to pay up to keep the name. The basketball league existed first. Big East football didn't start until 1991, and was run as a separate entity the whole time.
