        That’s 3x what the PAC-12 distributed. The last 10 years of terrible leadership in the PAC-12 is going to cost the schools hundreds of millions of $ over the next decade. Unwillingness to expand and raid the BIGXII when it was there for the taking. Unwillingness to take $1B of investor money for the PAC-12 network. Unwillingness to accept smaller $ from DirecTV to get more viewership. Unwillingness to expand the playoff to 16 teams. The presidents now get to watch athletics on the west coast slowly die from their high horse. 

        A top tier CFP program has just been redefined. The SEC will demand at least $1.1B annually from ESPN while Notre Dame will get $75M per year from NBC/The C**k. The ACC, PAC-10 and BIG XII will get $20-$30M per year while G5 teams will be stuck in the $5-10M range per year. Unless your school can add at least $62.5M of value to a conference you’re not going to be invited. 

        Hey but look at the bright side; at least we’re not Washington State or Oregon State.

        Gotta love the fact Rutgers, Purdue, Illinois, etc all get to reel in that very deserved cash.

          Until they get kicked to the curb by their current conferences in a few years.

          The problem with being a small fish in a big pond is eventually the big fish get tired of supporting you. If I’m Rutgers, Purdue, Illinois, etc. I’m putting that new money in a high-yield investment because it ain’t gonna be there for long.

            Ohio State, Michigan, Wisconsin, Penn State and Michigan State view the money that goes to schools like Rutgers and Illinois as an investment. Every conference needs to have bottom dwellers for the rest of the conference to rack up wins against. It is very unlikely the B1G is going to kick anyone out.

              I disagree. This is about money, not wins. Does Rutgers bring any eyeballs to televisions? There are plenty of perennial punching bags that have a lot bigger TV markets (UCLA, for example).

                Is the LA market “a lot bigger” than the New York/New Jersey market?

                And you’re half right. This is about money, but it’s also about wins. Boosters, donors, sponsors, and alumni don’t want to watch Ohio State, Michigan, Penn State, Michigan State and Wisconsin all go 8-4 or 7-5 or 6-6 every year while playing a brutally tough schedule. They want to see them winning 9, 10, 11+ games each year while playing a few marquee matchups and that’s where the money is.

          Don’t forget that powerhouse of Vandy when the SEC gets their contract 🙄

        Everyone is blaming the PAC 12 for horrible leadership and not expanding. $C squashed expanding and selling the P12N when everyone else wanted to. It was U$C that made those decisions and everyone went along with them to make them happy. Now they’re leaving because their horrible leadership sunk the PAC 12. The BIG is getting everything they deserve. It won’t be long until $C starts demanding unequal revenue.

        Largely out of the current conference members control.Especially when two of the former members never wanted to be a part of it fully anyways. 

        Larry Scott was a dork back when $C faced penalties. It should have been a polite middle finger to the NCAA especially with disgusting schools like Pedo St and Miami getting levied with nothing in way of punishment. So many other missteps along the way. Retaining Larry Scott being the main issue and never trying to expand the footprint of the conference.
