    What their asking for and what they end up with are two different things. I'm thinking they may have to settle for somewhere between 175 - 190m. The bigger question will be for how many years. Curious as to who in the P12 is best at negotiating this kind of contract?

    I´d guess this is exactly why the Conference hired Larry Scott.

    I'm all for this, I think the Pac 12 is highly undervalued. The new Big 12(10) deal definitely raises some eyebrows and Pac 12 territory has a vastly larger number of TV sets than the Big 12(10) footprint.

    Jon Wilner (college sportswriter for San Jose Mercury News who is a Stanford homer but knows what he's talking about when it comes to the business of the Pac-12) seems to think it's not so ridiculous now that the Comcast/Universal merger is complete. They are the best partner, especially since a key part of this deal will be a potential Pac-12 Network, since they control both the channels and the pipes that those channels are carried to a whole lot of homes.

    If that deal goes through, that will be 205 million dollars per year. Not sure if that will also include basketball. Is it all sports or just football.

    When Fox is offering the Texas 10 $90m per year for football and the SEC gets $205m for all media rights from CBS/ESPN I am fairly certain that´s for everything.

    if we can get this deal $17 million a pop would be great, getting close to double what we had in the Big 12.

    Anybody know how old the SEC deal is? I think a lot of people are overlooking inflation factors in these TV contracts. Some of the current deals are really old, and if you account for the explosion of college TV interest and general inflation, I don't see why our conference couldn't get a better deal than the current SEC deal.

    Oooo, shudder. How much could the rest of the T10 sports possibly be worth? Football is the cash cow. Their deal is going to be lackluster.

    How does the new Texas Channel fit into that deal?

    I hate Comcast so it is easy for me to say Comcast will end up buying the Pac 12 TV rights. Then they will get in a fight with DirecTV over costs in the middle of the season and I will miss half the games.

    If they offer over $205 million a year, then...

    I, for one, welcome our new Comcast overlords.

    True but we've had Dish, Direct, and now Comcast and Comcast is by far the best.
