There was discussion around here about what advance notice was required. According to this article it is 2 seasons notice plus 2.5 mil.

Last year, the MAC added Massachusetts as a football-only member, beginning in the 2012 season. At the same time, the MAC put in place new exit provisions which state that any football-only member wishing to leave the conference would need to provide notice two football seasons before departure and pay a fee of $2.5 million.


Let's hope our commissioner takes them to the cleaners!

Wonder what the MAC office will do with the financial windfall?
Yeah, everyone seems to think we're all going to be rich, especially after that gets cut so many ways.

I believe the money will be used to guarantee ticket sales for bowl bids.

The reason we can AFFORD to do as many as 5 bowl games is that someone can afford to guarantee ticket sales to some bowl game 2,000 miles from one of our team's campus.

I don't see the MAC sending checks to member institutions.

(I'd assume the MAC office uses BCS monies now to guarantee ticket monies to the bowls).
So what's the payout if it's less than 2 seasons?
The reports I have read say Temple might have to pay $5 million to pull out immediately, That is a big hunk of change.

It's chump change in the world of D-I football.

Not in our part of the world

Depends on what part of that world it's happening. WVU needed a $10M loan from the Big12 to complete the $20M exit fee, which at that level of AQ was doable. Boise needed a $10M loan from the nBE, and they couldn't pull it off. $5M for Temple plus their A-10 penaly collected from various sources is easier but certainly not chump change.
That's only 380K per remaining school. Certainly useful, but not exactly a windfall.
