WVU Advised By State AG To Re-Open Tier 3 Media Rights Bidding, But IMG Still Favorite

FALLOUT FROM DELAY: In West Virginia, Chuck McGill writes under the header, "WVU, IMG Marriage Still A Likely Conclusion." However, IMG will "lose time because of the review process." The first year of a restructured deal "could -- and should -- be prorated to reflect those missed opportunities." WVU's media rights are "so coveted because it's rare for an athletics program to hit the open market" (Charleston DAILY MAIL, 4/16). A Clarksburg EXPONENT-TELEGRAM editorial states the manner in which WVU "handled its multimedia rights bidding process can be viewed as nothing less than substandard." The "lengthy process ... should have been handled in a manner above reproach" (Clarksburg EXPONENT-TELEGRAM, 4/16).
