Television Contract Breakdown

 

This is an awesome article that brings all of the major conferences together and compares their first and second tier rights with the contracts they are currently under. 

What really surpises me is the fact that the SEC is in a really, really, really long contract that is already paying less than the BIG 10/12 and the new PAC 12 contracts. I do not seem to understand the length of some of these contracts, for example the BIG10/12's 25 year contract and even the SEC's 15 year contract signed last year. 

I really like that the current BIG 12 contract is eight years and really hope that they are able to negotiate the next one for the same amount of time. Yes a long contract will guarantee the money but as we have seen the exponential increase of interest in college sports why not take the chance on the conference's popularity and thus earning an even bigger contract.

I know the article is not very long, but as a business student, not only do I enjoy a big play by our Red Raiders while sitting in the "student pit" (trust me it turns into a crazy pit on the south side of the stadium), but also enjoy the business side of sports that most fans do not get to see.
