Big 12 Schools Agree To Equal Distribution of Tier I, II TV Revenues

THE REAL BIG EAST: Army, Navy and Air Force are being mentioned as potential candidates to join the Big East as football-only members, and ESPN’s Robert Smith said Air Force joining the conference “doesn’t make as much sense geographically." Smith: "And it’s not like you’re going to capture a huge TV market there.” It is going to be "interesting, though, when you start talking about BCS bowl implications, and the Big 12 future stability is huge to that issue. If Missouri doesn’t leave to the SEC, then you don’t really get that discussion about whether or not they change to a format where you have more than two automatic qualifiers allowed from each conference. If that’s the case, then the Big East may be secure.” Smith: “For the Big East, it’s huge that the Big 12 stays together” (“College Football Live,” ESPN2, 10/3).
