    Where did you find the VT report? I tried a google search for it recently and couldn't find anything.
    it's linked on the TSL homepage (http://www.techsideline.com/subscrip...ancial-report/).

    If we are in the $6MM range, that is likely the apples to apples of the $10MM Florida calls their "Tier 3".

    The B1G isn't really in the production business, are they? If I remember correctly, they partnered with a Fox network to do the B1G Network. Fox gets X% of the profits. Fox is doing all the heavy lifting. Right?

    And as an aside - I have no envy of the BTN. The ACC has no business in being in TV production - stick to what you are good at (relatively speaking, of course). But i just hope that Swofford has put a lot of thought into how much those Tier 3 rights are actually worth and used that as a bargaining tool. From face value it seems that barely keeping up with the other major conferences while throwing Tier 3 in the bag doesnt exactly look promising...

    partially right. a lot of the on site production is the responsibility of the league and the member institutions. i recall the B1G actually claiming this was a major benefit to their various media related programs. Fox provided the distribution network and the industry expertise, but i think the B1G schools are heavily involved in production. it was painfully obvious the first few years, too...

    I think you may be correct on that.

    UVA has something like 8,000 fewer students and collects $5.7 million MORE in student activity fees!

    I just wish we would STOP with the zone blocking read option crap and line up in the I, put a hat on a hat and run the tailback behind the fullback through a designated gosh-danged hole. There is NO REASON why this program shouldn't be able to find 5 fat guys who can move some people out of the way and clear a lane for a back to get through!

    Maybe that is why the SEC went they way they did. Didn't want to go into sports production.

    I bet Syracuse would drool at the opportunity presented by a B1G style network.

    That's what happens when no one shows up for your football games
