At the risk of sounding like a broken record, if the info in this post is fairly accurate, holy mother of crap.
… After talking to someone familiar with the SEC’s former television contracts and the current 15-year deal reached with CBS, by the time the SEC strikes an agreement with ESPN, the nation’s most powerful conference figures to make about $100 million per year with its new television deals.
That would be an astonishing $1.5 billion over the next 15 years.
That’s $60-70 million per year from CBS – with an inflation rider over the course of the 15-year contract. Plus another $40 million per year from ESPN/Raycom. Wow.
