Poll to follow.
Way, way, way ****ing less than the Chipper is talking about right now.
If the Big 12 dissolves after this year they would have lost the money to the other teams this year anyway? Somehow I don't imagine they are going to lost more than ten million if Missouri and KU and OU and the rest say goodbye before the end of the season
$12 cool million
In the neighborhood of $17mil. It'll get negotiated down.
ill go 17.5
My source is a sooner fan on a farm near Enid, I think. So this is FACT!
Missouri's Chancellor is the President of the Big 12 and Boren is Secretary. They delivered the exit paperwork that A&M requested yesterday. The Big 12 president's requested a face to face meeting with Loftin on the Saturday call and this occurred.
Both sides have agreed that A&M is leaving and the Big 12 will not stand in the way. The initial number on the exit fee is $12MM. There is a mutual waiver of legal claims as well.
The "rumored" 14th team is Va. Tech.
The information is a condensed version from one of the A&M pay sites sent to me by my Aggie wife.
They will pay less than 10 million in the end. Especially if they find an adequate replacement or Arky goes over.
Take the number that Chip Brown reports, cut it in half, cut it in half again, and then you'll have your answer.
I'll take whatever they stand to earn in 2011-12 year, as that is really all the Big 12 can withhold at this point, right? So $16-$18 million.
Did they re-write the exit fee after the Nubs and us left last season? I would imagine they're going to go for everything they can. Also, is this what the little 9 is going to charge them, or what they're going to end up paying in like 10 years after this goes through the courts.
whatever it takes.
11 Million even
1 Billion Dollars
(actual guess $16.7M)
Wouldn't it be funny if Aggie left the B12-3 and didn't get an invite to the SEC?
They didn't lose the SEC bid, they just ran out of time.
Not that it matters at this point, but I thought after the Buffs and Butthuskers left, the Big Tex Conference tightened up the rules and raised the ante for any team that wanted to leave in the future? If so, I'll say it will cost atm 13m
Freedom costs $1.05
