    So let me get this straight with Colorado...

    They're leaving for greener pastures in the Pac Ten. Yet, the Pac Ten's average revenue distribution was $10M for the 2009-10 school year, while the Big XII was at $11.6M. And like the Big XII, the Pac Ten has unequal revenue sharing.

    Without a Pac 16, there's now probably no conference network on the table, and they've added another team (possibly two with Utah) to share conference revenue.

    Both CU and Utah won't bring massive revenue earnings to the table, and if CU starts conference play in 2011, they'll owe the Big XII $10M. So exactly how does CU think they're better off in the Pac Ten?

    they, like everyone else, probably figured everyone was bailing on the Big12. I bet they just tried to get out before everyone else did.

    A decent question. I'm not the person best-qualified to answer it.

    But I will anyway.

    Actually, my only guesses are:
    1. CU has wanted to join the Pac-10 for quite some time (from what I have read)
    2. CU may have feared implosion and thought it was safer to jump ... so it may not have been a short-term financial decision.

    If CU could not come up with the money to get rid of Hawkins, how can they afford to to pay the Big 12 exit fee?

    Don't remember what happened only a week ago? The powers-that-be at Colorado thought it would be a race against Baylor to get into the Pac-10. News came out that powerful individuals within the Texas state legislature were going to push to have Baylor included in a Pac-10 expansion over Colorado. This likely caused Colorado decision-makers to panic and up their timetable.

    I suspect this might partially explain why the rest of the Big12 stayed together. These same powers in the Texas legislature likely switched from trying to get Baylor into the Pac-10 to trying to keep the Big12 intact when they realized that all hope was lost on getting Baylor into the Pac-10.

    The amputation of Colorado actually helped save the Big XII.......or is it Big X?

    So they're going to pay a buyout fee and then make less money in the Pac 10 than the new proposed TV deal of the Big 12.

    This. The vote to go to the Big XII was was something like 5-4 by their regents. I think their fans have always been too cool for (B12) school.

    Given the naming algorithm of the Big 10, the new conference name is the Big VIII.

    People, there is no buyout fee. They'll get a portion of their TV revenue in the coming 2 seasons withheld.

    Hindsight is 20/20. CU didn't want Baylor to take their spot in the PAC10, so they jumped to beat out Baylor. They also thought the new PAC10 deal would be a huge $$ windfall. None of this is relevant any longer because the teams stayed. CU gambled and missed.

    Okay fine, the question then is how can they afford their coaches with $4 million less coming in for the next couple of years?

    In 5 years they know they will be in the Pac-whatever. Do we know we'll be in the B12 in 5 years? 10 years?

    The same way we could afford $50,000,000 in stadium improvements? You can always get more money...and you don't know that the Pac 10 won't step in and cover the revenue loss for them.
