Interesting the Orange is TBD, mabye they'll do some market research and base the payout on potential viewership.:jimlad:
Payout is divided 50/50 between the two participating conferences.
All of the payout money from the Big 12 bowl games (plus at-large) gets pooled together. The Big 12 allocates each participating team a certain amount for expenses from that pool, based on which bowl it is. If the school comes in under budget, it gets to keep the difference.
The school also has an opportunity to collect a portion of the ticket revenue, based on how many it sells from its allotment. (That's why schools insist that fans buy tickets from the school and not from the bowl or a third party.)
After all of that has been settled, the remaining pool money is split evenly among all 10 conference teams.
I believe the game will be broadcast on your local ABC station but it will be a production of ESPN. I think they're actually owned by ABC or Disney or something like that. ABC has been doing that with their Saturday night games this fall.
We really need to get better bowl tie ins. Not exactly sure how the conference goes about that but man that is pathetic.
The BCS championship is worth 44 million? Sweet cheesus. No wonder the SEC has been able to lock down on it for so long. They must be rolling in the cookie dough like nobodies business.
I would love for nothing more than the Big 12 to find its way back in to Florida for a bowl game.
man who is notre dame sharing all that sweet dough with?
For the lazy I calculated each team's contribution to the pot then the cut for each team (rough and it doesn't count the costs taken out for each team)
Baylor - $2.075M
Texas Tech - $1.7M
West Virginia - $1.8M
Texas - $3.175M
TCU - $3.325M
ISU - $1.4375M
Oklahoma State - $1.1M
Oklahoma - $3.625
Kansas State - $18M (Assuming $36M for the payout)
Total cut per team (excluding Kansas): $4,026,388.88
Total cut per team (including Kansas): $3,623,750
If Oklahoma would've made a BCS it would've meant an extra $2M PER TEAM
