Latest BE TV Contract Value 


"No pot of gold at the end of Big East rainbow"

If this holds up, going to the new conference may cripple former CUSA programs.

"Now, here's the crux of the matter.

NBC Sports Network's verbal offer would yield the six C-USA defectors along with the University of Cincinnati, UConn, South Florida, Temple and, perhaps, Navy, about $2 million in revenue annually.

Only $2 million."

"So much for all the pie-in-the-sky promises of much more lucrative annual revenues than C-USA could offer its members.

Even more ludicrous is the fact the six defectors each have to ante up $7 million in exit fees to C-USA along with a reported $1.5 million in entrance fees to join the Big East.

It's going to take a while to make up that $8.5 million at the rate of only $830,000 per year."

It is amazing when and what you choose to nitpick.  You ignore the point of the story to try to "lol" at me. 

 

I didn't say "this is definitely going to cripple them" I said it may - which you haven't done anything to refute. 

 

If this holds up, what do you think that sort of math will do to the budgets of these programs?  Coaches salaries, recruiting budgets, facility upgrades, other sports' budgets...there is a whole lot that could be crippled.  If a was a promising assistant coach at one of those schools, I would be brushing off my resume.

Some of these programs might already have been budgeting for a windfall, and now they have to face a significant debt.  There could also be psychological impacts.  I saw a story last week that said a recruit decided against a Big East school specifically because of the instability of that conference.  

Lol all you want, but unless Aresco improves these numbers in a hurry, you will get a first hand look at just how bad this gets for these teams.  I'll bet you a case of beer that the five year win average for those six schools gets worse, compared to the previous five years.

It's crash and burn for schools like SMU.

Somehow, commenting on the only point you made is nitpicking? Wednesday on the Air Force board.

It's more money than they're making in CUSA now. And the Big East has more than enough money from their own exit fees that they've received-- and more on the way from the basketball schools-- to help offset whatever CUSA fees these schools have to pay.

Seriously, "psychological impacts?" Good lord.

Why didn't you just start with this comment? That would have made more sense and have actually added substance to the conversation.

I agree with you. I see it as a letdown for those schools, but probably not too much more than that.

What else do you call it when you lose a recruit because of the percieved weakness of your conference?  That is a direct on-field impact.

If these numbers pan out, these schools will have opened up a huge recruiting weakness.

"Hey Dad, did you see this school just incurred $8M in debt?  Not the wisest decision makers over there... Are those the kind of people you want teaching your son?"

RE: Latest BE TV Contract Value 


there is no way you seriously think a recruit is paying attention to the balance sheet of a school

it's clear that the nuBigEast isn't on the level of the tier 1 conferences: SEC, B1G, Big XII, or PAC-12 (or the tier 1A ACC).  but who else is?  the nuWAC?  I mean most of the teams in the nuBigEast would have been competing with the nuWAC for recruits before this, right?  and level of competition?  I'd put the nuBigEast over the nuWAC when you're comparing the teams top to bottom.

just for giggles, what do you expect to make in the MWC under the crushing financial deal made to make boise your supreme overlord? >= $2M?
