Again, my question is: Will ESPN and Fox be willing to pony up the money for those three schools? You are asking ESPN and Fox to substantially increase payout to those 3 schools. Also, Big 12 member schools would get less from their bowl game distribution going from 10 to 13. No conference will be willing to take a conference distribution being less from one year to the next. That is why I do not see the Big 12 expanding. There are no schools worth $20+Million per year that are available. You are asking ESPN and Fox to pony up for two directional schools and a city school. Doubt that would happen.
Hey one is a "locational" school, lol. Those schools would take less than the 20 million annually. You are presuming they would want a pro rata share coming in the front door. I know at least UCF understands the business side of realignment.
