Big 12 deal with ESPN
Just saw it
https://www.sportsbusinessdaily.com/Dail...ig-12.aspx

covers
2019,2021,2023 conference championship football games
from all schools but Texas and Oklahoma- games that aren't on linear TV will be on ESPN+- to include spring game, and at least 1 football game.

Big 12 is screwed, they agreed to put stuff on ESPN+

ESPN+ becomes the de facto Big 12 network.

"...Eight of the 10 schools will provide more than 50 exclusive events per year, including at least one football game, any spring football game and any basketball game that is not on an ESPN linear network. Texas, which has Longhorn Network, and Oklahoma, which has its own local rights deal, will not provide content to ESPN+.

Starting in '19, Baylor, Kansas, Kansas State and Oklahoma State will provide games for ESPN+. The following year, Iowa State, TCU, West Virginia and Texas Tech will participate...."

RE: Big 12 deal with ESPN
It sounds like a $2 million raise for the Big 12. But it could also be a misleading $22 million as the ACC did when they announced their deals by only counting forward years. May not be much of any raise.

RE: Big 12 deal with ESPN
How does Oklahoma and Texas continuously get away with screwing the rest of the Big 12? Get the hell out of that conference it’s the least level playing field I’ve ever seen.

This contract makes it clear every non UT/OU school is basically a AAC school and I now fully expect ESPN has the ability to influence these 2 leagues futures.

2024/25 is coming.

You’re not a power league if your “defacto network” is ESPN+ LMAO you’re the AAC.

Goodnight Big 12

RE: Big 12 deal with ESPN
I'd look at the deal- 40 million over 6 years- it'd be basically about 10 million for the 3 title games and then 10 million for the ESPN+ stuff.

People that hate ESPN+ must have had a really hard time when the Milk man stopped deliveries.

Because where can *any* of them go, except the AAC or MWC? It's not like the SEC and B1G are fighting over Texas Tech, TCU, and Kansas, eh?

The Big 12, even with the favoritism that OU and TX get, is way better for any of them than anywhere else that wants them.

The AAC is G5 because officially, they ARE in the G5, and because unofficially, their money is far, far closer to G5 than P5.

This Big 12 deal changes none of that.

Remember, the Big 12 is only screwed if Texas and Oklahoma are screwed, and this quote says they aren't:

"Texas, which has Longhorn Network, and Oklahoma, which has its own local rights deal, will not provide content to ESPN+."

This is a very good Big 12 deal. It basically pays them very nice money for three CCG games, and dumps a bunch of low-rent Big 12 content (meaning not TX or OU) on to ESPN+.

Obviously.

All I heard on here from Big 12 posters was if the AAC is on the same platform as the Sunbelt then what does that say about the AAC as a conference.

It was nonstop “only an irrelevant league would put any point blank period....content behind a pay wall”.

So takebacksies?

Meh...

Bottom line ESPN is setting it up so that every college football fan is going to have to get ESPN+. Doesn't matter if you are a G5 go or not.

Agreed. That’s what I believed from the beginning. It’s just hilarious to see those trashing the concept get a reality check so soon.

When ESPN+ was launched, they claimed that it would consist of almost entirely *new* content, with very little shifting of content from existing formats that cable TV subscribers already get. Most crucially, ESPN3, which has been a bonanza for college football fans.

I immediately smelled a rat and expressed doubts about that, and my fears are being entirely born out. ESPN3 in particular is being stripped for PLUS.

Heck, even this past season, there was a *noticeable* decline in games on ESPN3 from 2017.

The numbers just aren't there to make it a home for G5 schools or only for P5 buy games with FCS schools. ESPN has to get millions of subscribers, and this means they'll be eventually touching most, if not every conference, P5 and G5 alike. It will also mean there will be games of importance occasionally as well.

And now with a shifting landscape in TV distribution and consumption ESPN+ is a bonanza for football fans. My cable internet subscription (don't have cable TV) did not provide me with ESPN3. Now I can pay my $60 a year and get all the App State Sports I can manage to watch. ESPN+ has way more content than ESPN3 had for the Sun Belt.

Yeah I would think for a fan of a G5 program, ESPN + is probably a net positive. You get everything and can rewatch too.
