Re: LOL PAC 12
The way I look at it is, if the Pac 12 was able to land that contract, think of the dough the Big 12 should rake in in 2015-2016. If Notre Dame or the rumored ACC targets came on board, we're probably looking at $30 million plus per team, not even counting the third tier. Even if the conference stays pat, we have a great shot to be in the $23-25 million + third tier range. Larry's negotiation is going to get the Big 10 and Big 12 paid in a couple of years.
