  • Pac 12 looking to Private Equity to close the $$$ gap

    Link to story

    If it wasn't blatantly obvious before (and it was really), here is proof positive of what's it's all about.
    Who was the first person to look at a cow and say, "I think I'll squeeze these dangly things here, and drink whatever comes out?"

    This is bound to work..... The comments with the story are fun to read.

    Here comes another conference realignment sooner rather than later.

      There's the B1G, the SEC, and everyone else.

      The B1G will go after Texas and OU, and parlay that into a $75 million-per-school split. The Big 12 will be left with inviting UNM and North Texas, possibly SMU and Houston, and have a payout of around $15-20 million per school. There will be no heavy hitters remaining in the Big 12.

      The B1G and SEC will then form an alliance, withdraw from the NCAA, and have their own championships and rules. Everyone else will do their own deal.

        Wouldn’t they be better off making a deal with Direct TV than selling a portion of the conference

          I don't think the state will let UT abandon all the other schools, and I don't think Oklahoma will let OU abandon OSU.

          I think the Big 12 has to find a way to get better or continue drifting into irrelevance.

            Except Direct TV is losing subscribers just like the traditional cable companies. And their streaming services is having a hard time gaining traction against the established players. And the it looks like from The Oregonian article, the Direct TV deal is not a done deal, so if you throw in what is noted in the below article, a significant portion of their future revenue stream might be in question.

              This isn't the 90's when a Baylor alum Governor or Lt Governor (also a Tech Alum) were in office. They pulled a lot of strings back then to help formulate the Big 12 when A&M and UT didn't want Baylor. Since A&M is out of the equation and shouldn't have any say what so ever about which direction UT goes, UT can pretty much call it's own shots without fear of legislative repercussions. Unless they decide to stick their noses in it and mark my words, A&M will rue the day if they do so. Especially when the man who has the pen to veto or approve legislation is a UT alum.

                To do what? DirecTV is a transmittor of content, not a producer.

                  Maybe the state of Texas will then start subsidizing the Big 12 members’ athletic budgets to make up for the ever-widening disparity? I don’t think state legislatures are going to be getting involved in picking winners and losers in the conference realignment game.

                      I hope this happens, is super successful and other conferences emulate it. I’ve been called a homer already, but just wait if I can ever own part of the conference.

                          Alas, sigh tu is forever stuck in the BigXII by their own doing. Hello!!! Longhorn Network boys!!! No other conference in the country would put up with the $h!t they regularly serve up to other members.

                          But, who knows what back room back door deals can be pulled off! Never say Never.

                            The LHN is a short-term deal. It has been a colossal failure and there is no way ESPN will renew it.

                              The LHN is a symptom of a bigger issue. UT has historically not played well with conference mates in terms of revenue distribution and decision making power. Techster is spot on. No other conference will agree to the Horns demands. But all things change....as you point out, the LHN will go away and the AD who bullied the rest of the B12 is long gone, so there’s hope for the future.
