    TV contracts for big 10 and SEC

    Rivals.com College Football - Big Ten far from conceding TV wars with SEC

    What is sad is you see what these 2 conferences are getting and what the Big 12 settled for and its a joke

    Re: TV contracts for big 10 and SEC

    The Big XII has a good TV deal considering the markets it's teams are in.

    What does sort of stink is the revenue distribution, but that's not going to change anytime soon because there's little motivation for Texas and Oklahoma to share the wealth with the smaller market teams.

    To them, it's like asking the Harlem Globetrotters to pay the same amount of money to the Washington Generals that they pay themselves.

    The Big XII is really a microcosm of D-1 college football as a whole, from the revenue perspective.

    It's understandable, at least with the SEC given the quality of teams found within the conference, as well as the fan bases that each of their schools have.

    But really, all the Big Ten are the fan bases.

    Man, it's fun kicking something when it's down...
