I was talking about Tallahassee and spending the weekends on the gulf shore. LOL.
“We need to keep this (expletive) together,” Mauti and Zordich to Hill
I will 100% agree with that. FSU girls are...fun...we'll say
BS….”If we Leave”…we pay a fee to get our TV rights back. B1G doesn’t own them forever. Nor would anyone with half a clue espouse that tenet. PSU elected to defer our TV rights to the B1G network. But if we choose to leave the B1G they don’t own our rights forever as you presume. There will definitely be a penalty to pay according to the contract, but B1G doesn’t own any members TV rights “forever”.
October 12, 2013. PSU 43 - UM 40 (4 OT). Unfortunately this fan wasn't around long enough to see it!
" it is by far the best D1A academic conference."
This statement is simply not true.
Google US News undergraduate rankings.
ACC has more in the top 50 than does B1G.
This is why I wanted to put forever in quotes. That's my bad guys. But the exit fee alone doesn't get back our rights.
B1G "Exit Fee" includes the TV rights buy-back clause and it is heavily onorus on the exiting member.
Was always under the impression that it was two-tiered. That's my bad. That said, point still stands about the difficulty and financial encumbrance. Thanks kc.
Can you put a number behind "heavily onorus?"
Dominate The State
Is the contract public record or at least in the media anywhere (not a smartass response, but a serious question)? Otherwise, I think you would have to build from WVU's exit last year, and multiply by minimum 250%, and that was before they settled their reduced price. That would just be a guess though. Money's at a higher stake here and the B1G is commissioned much much better than the Big East ever was.
Keep in mind we are paying 60 million in penalties, plus whatever the civil suits bring guys.
Big Ten median Rank using US World Rankings is something like 53, while the ACC is I believe 51.
"Whoever’s trying to kill me isn’t getting the job done. But one day, I’m going to punch that f___r in the face."
Found this article from Forbes (love), pretty interesting. Here's a fun quote:
"The Big Ten and Pac-12 don’t have a base exit fee, but they also have grants of rights in place that could prove incredibly costly if a school were foolish enough to leave anytime soon."
Judging by numbers thrown around there, if the Big 12 is throwing around $50m+ in grants plus an exit fee, you bet your ass the B1G has something at least comparable.
Edit: Stupid me, didn't see page two (or read the article before I could let kc swoop in on me ). They would own our media rights until 2027 (Good Lord) unless we negotiate out of that, with no base exit fee (so def no two tiered agreement). $50m may definitely be on the low side in that whole equation, like the way low side.
The new fee is a huge increase for the ACC, up roughly 250% from a year ago. But is the conference's exit fee really the worst deal in college athletics? Maybe, but a close look at exit fees from around the country shows that there is a lot more to leaving a conference than just paying the bill.

It also has more academic standards to get in. The bottom is higher, so to speak. Nebraska had its AAU membership taken away right before or after it joined. That caused quite a stir, though I believe it was revealed that it was something to do with their medical facilities. That's off hand though.
I don't think we're leaving the Big Ten. We should go for 4 schools in the East / Mid Atlantic.
Would not hurt to have the 4-5 strongest state universities surrounding Washington DC and New York.
Own MD/VA/PA/NJ - think about how well we'd be able to lobby ......big government, defense, pharma, education, media, and banking.
My choice - UVA, VT, UMD, Rutgers. I choose taking 2 VA schools (my bet is they're a package) over UConn.
On the other hand, playing conference games in Storrs & NYC may get people's attention in Bristol.
Well, the Va Tech fans seem to want to work out a trade with you guys...you go to ACC and they want in the BIG...maybe you guys can get the ball rolling....
So you're now going on multiple ACC team boards and telling them to take PSU and our terrible fans. Can you please just admit you're a troll?
Look...Not Happening. PSU is committed to B1G for better or worse. Maybe OSU is looking to join the ACC. Fool!
