If I'm the B1G, I avoid UT, as tempting and lucrative as that addition would be. UT has a reputation of not playing nice with others, and arriving at the sandbox and immediately declaring it's their sandbox. They'll look at scUM, Wisconsin, or Nebraska and say, "You're in my spot."

The conferences are not for profit entities. Does this jeopardize that status?
It shouldn't in theory, the PE cut of the money would just be taxed at that level.

My confusion is what the PE firm is actually buying here. These deals have been increasing in European soccer, buying up future TV rights and other income streams, but those clubs and leagues can't just scatter to the wind the way the Pac 12 did.

How does the firm enforce this against a bunch of government entity schools in a diverse pileup of states?

The harder it is to answer that question, the less these rights are worth today.

Honestly this sport is committing suicide so fast it's all going to be moot anyway before long.

the universe of college revenue sports in 3-4 years time from now will not resemble anything remotely like college revenue sports from just 3-4 years ago

7-8 years of time , 2020 to 2028 will be even greater differences than 70-80 years of time from 1950-2020

it’s not good .

I've read Gritty's posts with interest and usually don't 100% subscribe to his ominous, sky-is-falling predictions.

Anyone go outside and notice the sky getting lower? I sure do.

This is fun because there's entitlement sponsors in motorsports, like the NTT IndyCar Series and the Monster NASCAR Cup Series ... and typically those companies only see value for the first contract term, then dip out (Verizon as a recent IndyCar named series sponsor, and Monster + Sprint on the NASCAR side).

Don't know how that will play in college sports ... just makes people buy more merch with the new logo on it, I guess.

If you are going to sell out and change the name, why be stupid about it and call it the Allstate 12 when there are 14 teams? Just call it the Allstate Conference if you are going that route.
Yeah, that's wild to not take the easy opportunity to un-link your conference branding from an incorrect team count.

Maybe they expect to lose 2 more teams?

I'm all for capitalism and whatnot, but I'm really tired of the endless increase of advertising and money grabbing. Allstate 12? Lmao. What's next, the State Farm Ten? University of Illinois-ExxonMobil? I really don't wanna watch the battle of insurance companies. I wonder if they realize that they're killing the sport or if they simply don't care and just can't resist squeezing out every last possible cent.

I guess the Big 12 didn't read the story about Red Lobster.
Catch, kill, pick it to the bones, then sell off what's left.
Make billions in profits.

Nothing good will come from this

They’re like leaches, sucking blood from their hosts before detaching and moving on. There’s no benefit to the host.
