Anyway you cut it I like the odds of the SEC and ACC acquiring key properties if Disney opens the war chest to boost original inventory.


If Disney "opens the war chest" then Fox is done.

But what direction does ESPN go in? Split the B12 between the SEC & ACC or merge the brands with the PAC & own 3 power conferences?

I think they'd have to wait a few years before they could own the PAC. Theoretically, they could buy the PACN at any time, but FOX still owns about half of the T1 and T2 content.

All that will be available at the next negotiation, but that won't be until about 2025.

FOX and ESPN merely lease the rights to the PAC. I think the distinction between leasing and purchasing the rights has to do with the authority to determine game times, and who is on the tube. But anyway it means the PAC retains more control and it is one reason that FOX and ESPN pay less.

Interesting.

The PAC certainly likes to have control.

It's also interesting that the PAC 2025 renegotiation date is in line with the end of the B12 GOR.
