Interestingly, ESPN feels the need to post a statement on the ACC broadcast rights agreement. I don’t recall any similar explanation appearing in the midst of last year’s conference shuffling, so what makes this go around different?

To what is this ESPN post responding? What sentiment are they addressing?
Translation: “Hey FSU. This is what you’re worth. Deal with it. Or actually win a game that matters.”
The composition clause takes over when new members are added. They automatically renegotiate the two new team’s worth as they see fit. That’s a problem when signing a long contract. You don’t get to renegotiate each team’s status, only the new teams.
Our SEC contract will soon end so our renegotiation is palpable for each team in the SEC. Not so in the ACC. The SEC composition clause will soon end so ESPN has to deal with the SEC differently. That, and the recent stats showing FSU and Clemson not getting fair compensation for the audience money they are responsible for, will probably end in a jailbreak for the two. This is going to be fun to watch!
