    I think that works a lot better for pro baseball than college football. A big crowd makes college football more exciting to watch for most folks , it would seem to me.

    Pennsylvania comes close enough to the Atlantic coast, and West Virginia used to be part of Virginia, so they're close enough if WVA were to join. Louisville is the odd man out (in more ways than one).

    But the GOR still prevents anybody but the Big 12 from getting a Big 12 team's media money, right? Would they forgo that money and leave anyway? Is ESPN not locked into a contract with the Big 12?

    If it's a round-robin schedule, those matchups would occur once every 4 years in a 32-team megacluster.

    The only reason I don't have the bottom package on Uverse is because it doesn't include the ACC Network. So I pay for it to see intriguing matchups in the ACC.

    In the short term, while the contract is in place.

    Uh huh. I'm pretty sure if viewership declines, the contract shrinks as well.

    So if they make the playoffs, that just gives them a guaranteed extra game.

    Well right now they have the ACC wrapped around their little fingers with our 5-game guarantee and don't have to make that choice. They could string us along for the next 15 years and be just fine, since we've put all our marbles on getting them full time. Are we going to dump them?

    Yeah, and people pay for those packages including the SEC network because of the intriguing matchups they get - in the SEC.

    Same teams they've always played. Plenty of schools will want to play them OOC. They have a national following.
