Notre Dame's part time presence increases even the valuations of the ACC schools without being considered fully. Otherwise the average valuation of $182,383,929 would be a tad lower.

So adding either W.V.U. or Connecticut would only detract from the average valuation of the ACC. Louisville increased it.

That's why Louisville was added, and why they aren't likely to be booted.

It's also partly why the Big 12 is still alive. Only Texas and Oklahoma add to the value of the SEC and Big 10. They still add even if O.S.U. and T.T.U. are taken. But O.S.U. and T.T.U. don't add to either the SEC's or B1G's bottom line (academics not being considered to their detriment). So if OU and UT don't go to the Big 10 or SEC where they would earn the most by quite a bit, then they have an Officer and a Gentlemen's moment, "I got nowhere else to go!" Hence the survival of the Big 12.

Excellent analysis. It kind of confirms what we all kind of figured - regarding the Big 12, it exists at the pleasure of Texas and Oklahoma. They are the 900 and 800 pound gorillas surrounded by a bunch of 100 pound monkeys. Anyone who says schools like Kansas or Oklahoma State are valuable to anyone else are kidding themselves. They aren't even valuable to Texas and Oklahoma, save in the sense that those two need at least 8 other warm bodies to make a conference, and they are the warmest stiffs available.

It also tells us that why the ACC has done some very un-ACC like things the last few years, like admit an athletic mercenary like Louisville and permit a partial affiliation in Notre Dame: Their value is inherently low, so they were desperate.

And I know, ACC fans will say "well, this is our value before the ACCN kicks in", and that's true. But wake me up when the ACCN kicking in results in a substantial boosts to those values.

The “900 pound gorillas” need to start beating the “100 pound monkeys”. Iowa St beating OU in Norman is a bit embarrassing considering it’s only the 2nd time since 1960 that ISU has beaten Oklahoma. Texas has been a steamy pile of feces for awhile...both were hot, wet, stinky pieces of shart in basketball last season. Losing records....

I thought Iowa State was more like a tree sloth than a hundred pound monkey, but your point still stands.
