    Who pays for contracts that are going to be broken

    when different conferences expand like the Pac 10 or Big 10....

    when schools go to other conferences and everything breaks down who pays for contracts for games that are going to be schedules or finds replacements....

    Give the Big 10 and Pac 10 the bill and find replacement teams

    Obviously I'm not an expert and I've never seen a sports-related contract, but I have significant experience working with contracts in my job and most of them have an out for a significant business change or business downturn, some even mention the term "act of God." In short, I assume most contracts have some similar kind of out clause in the event of a radical event such as a conference blow-up or whatever.

    Really, the non-conference games don't necessarily need to be changed. They would be far enough out (2012) that the dates are not set so any conference games should be able to be worked around them. If the new conference goes to 9 games then there may be more of an issue, but I'm sure that the small games would be dropped if the school already has four games scheduled. The conference games aren't officially scheduled yet so other than the conference buyout, there wouldn't need to be any compensation.

    I have a hard time believing those schools could claim "force majeure" (Force Majeure clause) when they are the ones making the decision to force major conference alignments.

    Other than that, who knows what the contracts state.

    SO if we lose 8 or so teams, will the last 4 teams split the buyout money? Could be our last chance at a payday if we get screwed.

    We need a stock broker b/c that's the only way we're going to make money in the future. This Baylor over sCUm could really eff us if aTm goes to SEC.

    I am failing to understand why it matters if Baylor or CU leave? What difference does it make? aTm isn't going where Texas doesn't go. I'll eat crow if that's wrong, but it won't be.

    This whole board has been loaded with "the sky is falling" attitude and quite frankly it isn't logical. We aren't going to the MAC so get that out of your heads first of all. The worst thing that could happen is that the Big Ten takes MU and NU and those othered rumored teams accept invites to the PAC 10. We then would merge/join/whatever with the Mountain West. With the Big 12 dissolved, I think a conference with Utah, BYU, TCU, and BSU along with 4 new BCS programs, one of which recently went to a BCS bowl would have to be AQ. Hell, they would have been shortly anyway. As far as basketball we would have two premiere programs and maybe a third if Baylor is in that mix. Sure the MWC initially would not be ideal, but it certainly wouldn't be the end of the world. IMO it's a better football conference than the Big East. Really, who cares about conference in basketball anyway.

    Or so I have read.
