    WVU gave <1 year notice, i believe, while 'Cuse ultimately gave ~20 months notice. wVU left the BEFC in a scheduling pinch, 'Cuse is leaving the same year most new memebrs are joining, so there is no void left behind. honestly, i think 'Cuse could have done MUCH better in negotiations since the BE didn't want to include them in rev sharing after the new members come in anyway...but it is what it is.

    Who needs a TV contract? The BE is doing great collecting exit fees. They just took in 8 more schools who will eventually pay to get out so the future is bright.
