  • Aggies to sec?

    http://ncaafootball.fanhouse.com/201...atter-of-time/

    this is from espn insider UPDATE: Clay Travis of FanHouse.com also says that the new Longhorn Network ultimately will drive Texas A&M to the SEC for a number of reasons, not least of which is that A&M fans will not be able to stomach paying rights fees so their local cable company can carry Texas' network. (Of course, even if the Aggies make the move, that would still happen.) Travis also says he was told that the SEC would be willing to stay at 13 teams if need be, that A&M wouldn't have to bring along a partner (Oklahoma?). If true, that might make a difference, because the conference could establish a foothold in Texas without having to divvy up the pie a 14th way.

    LOL.

    Texas State Legislature would never let it happen.

      It won't happen-- it's just a bunch of Aggie fans venting their spleens.

          There has been a lot of chatter about the rest of the Big 12 forming a Big 12 network in reaction to the Texas network. It'd be all of the other 3rd tier rights wrapped up on one network: 9 nothing football games, 40 ooc b-ball games and non-revenue programming (sans Texas). It may just be a bunch of smoke and mirrors.

            wouldn't Texas still receive money from that since they are a part of the conference? Or would they write in stipulations that you have to have games on that channel to receive money?

              Third tier rights belong to the Universities. They wouldn't be conference games. They'd be games against Sister Mary's School for the Blind. It's basically the crap that wouldn't get picked up by FSN or CBS College Sports. It's the same stuff that Texas is getting paid $15mm a year for.

                  Texans, probably. ESPN is apparently losing a LOT of money on this deal. Most speculate that ESPN is paying Texas $15mm a year to not leave the Big 12. The idea being that if Texas joins a conference with a conference network (Pac 16, Big 10, etc.), ESPN gets cut out of the tv rights completely. Worse still, FOX has been buying equity into these conference channels and making hand over fist. It's cheaper play mercenary to Texas, than mercenary to a conference.

                    Aggies to SEC would mean ESPN redo their SEC contract for more money.

                    Not going to happen anytime soon
