    He's wrong on a lot of points.

    Without getting into detail, the very fact that the move from 8 to 10 to 12 team conference (and the new talk of 16) has been completely driven by revenue considerations proves him wrong. Volume matters and he doesn't seem to remember that Oklahoma and Texas have only been in the same conference for about 15 years.

    Umm. He's very wrong on a number of key points regarding money, but ok.

    It's amazing the man who built broadcast.com into the behemoth it remains today could be so wrong. CU's experience disproves most of his points. His main point it money will be higher but as Larry Scott has said, college football is undervalued and the dollars are there for conferences with more teams.

    Mark's a smart guy. But he likes to comment on businesses he doesn't fully understand. In his NBA business, they over-expanded and ended up with more volume than the public wanted or the entertaining talent could support. College football is a different animal with different dynamics.
