WTF? Your telling me that the ACC is passing up millions of dollars for bullshit raycom? I cant believe that. I guess my real question is when does the contract run out?
Watch how much evil we call the crime picks up...There is nothing else to do Sal!- Ray Lewis
In about 10 years.
Yeah I looked it up 2022-2023 season is when the contract runs out. But if im not mistaken, if we add 2 more teams then ESPN and Raycom have to come back to the table right? They have to try and get this shit right, I mean, it makes too much sense.
Talks are already in progress with ESPN and I've seen nothing about an ACC network. ACC teams will get an extra 1-2M a year once Syracuse/Pitt join the league.
ESPN has to come back to the table, but they continue to hold all rights. So any ACC Network would be through ESPN. If the ACC and ESPN do not agree, the decision goes to mediation and ESPN continues to hold all ACC rights.
Raycom doesn't actually pay the ACC; I believe Raycom pays ESPN to sublicense ACC games. So any additional money on the contract would have to come from ESPN.
I can't even set my DVR to record our game tonight because it hasn't shown up on the GD guide yet.
a small bump per team and another 5 years added to the length.
Have fun fending off the SEC and Big 10 when they come to poach offering twice as much cash. No one can poach a big 12 team for at least 6 years as they have all assigned their tv rights to the big 12 conference.
Many of Pitt's 58 "rushing attempts" were the result qb Tino Sunseri fleeing the pocket like a man whose clothes were on fire.
Yeah, I think Raycom had the contract until last year, but then it flipped and now ESPN has it and carves out some or Raycom.
Temple could join the Big East in all sports as early as the next school year.
Also, FSU has replaced WVU on the schedule with Savannah State. WVU will owe FSU at least $500,000, although CBS's Brett McMurphy indicated that FSU may also pursue additional liquidated damages.
The Big East is said to be in discussions to add Temple, a former member of the league in football, for all sports, but legal issues will have to be cleared.
Schools that have never made the NCAA Tournament — the 2014 edition http://wp.me/plDgR-1WQ
That means the football schedule should be released real soon
"Maryland football: Where everybody gets hurt and the starting left tackle has an existential crisis."
Georgia Tech also has a scheduling issue for Sept. 8th that is delaying the schedule (trying to find a suitable opponent to play five days after opening the season on MNF in Blacksburg).
So this means the SEC can't get West Virginia to join? Total bummer
And we've never seen one of the new Big 12 schools break a contract after committing to that conference.
Enjoy UT, OU and the 8 dwarves
I'm shocked that VU is allowing this.
Plus it brings the football total to 13 teams, once all the other invitees show up. That is a messy schedule. You would think they would have considered the possibility of WVU leaving immediately before they finalized the deals with some of the other schools. Ask Temple before Memphis, or ask Temple before Navy. Does this mean they aren't finished? Another football only invite will bring them to 14 football schools and 18 basketball schools.
They're going to lose Cincy and Louisville when the B12 expands most likley. I'm guessing they go to 14 and that way if further expansion occurs they don't need to add schools again. I also think there was a brushback from the basketball schools on the first wave of expansion.
I think this will happen. There is no rush for the Big East to add another team because Navy won't join until 2015 (I believe). Plenty of time to decide what they're going to do.
Also, there is the slim possibility that Notre Dame will join the ACC and UConn would become the 16th ACC team. But Notre Dame is being a dick about joining our conference and I'm pretty much getting tired of it.
ND is being a richard about joining any conference, so we shouldn't take it personally.
Pitino will get his wish (Temple & Memphis) just in time for Louisville to accept an invite to the Big12.
They only get 1 vote don't they? The Big East is desperate.

When is the timeline for Louisville to go to the Big12. I honestly just want all this crap to be done with so I can know whether or not ND will be in the ACC or not.
DSB has also learned from sources with knowledge of the situation, that while BYU continues to flesh out its schedule as an independent, it is also aggressively pursuing full membership in the Big 12 Conference for all of its athletic programs.
BYU has been involved in continued discussions with the Big 12 and its member schools for sometime now, even after the conference added TCU and West Virginia this past fall to replace Texas A&M and Missouri, both of which defected to the SEC.
In fact, discussions between BYU and the Big 12 go back to 2010, when the conference was reduced to ten teams after losing Nebraska and Colorado to the Big Ten and PAC-12 respectively.
Talks between the two parties have ramped up over the past couple of weeks however, with discussions revolving around the possibility of BYU and Louisville being added in time for the 2013-14 athletics season. Such a move would get the conference back to its original number of 12 member schools, and provide it with the opportunity to hold a championship game for football in December of 2013.

FSU and WVU had a buyout clause with liquidated damages. I know that FSU does not have a great law school, and their lawyers are likely dumb as bricks, but liquidated damages means you agree in advance how much the damages are for a breach of the contract.
And lol @ FSU who claim they are still coming to Morgantown in 2013. I highly doubt they want to play a mac school and be a one and done for WVU.
and they arnt getting the full 500k. they could have scheduled pitt or cuse who was a comparable team, but they chose Helen keller's school for the blind instead.
Plus rutgers is looking for a game. And they are the number 3 team in the land!

Pitrino is on record saying he is not going to the Big 12. Not sure how that will affect Louisville's decision.
