That is the real metal

The Big-12 makes 60 to 75 percent more than the ACC per school depending who does the math and as we have seen from recent ventures in purchasing power of conference material, prices are going up, not down in the future. I am not sure where all of this money is coming from because ESPN had massive lay offs over the last three years and their viewership is down. But, money seems to be plentiful for now.

The Big-12 will discuss expansion, the GOR, media rights all of the smaller issues that matter in the upcoming Spring 2020 meeting. After that meeting concludes, we will know more, but from the limited chatter on the matter, expectations are that the current growth incline will be maintained if not increased pending membership increases. I do not think anyone likes who 11 and 12 might be and most schools are fine with 10. Some of them may settle for 11 - not exactly sure why unless it is Texas chatter and Houston, but that horse died two years ago.

The general mood is money is only going to be better and it is expected that after the next round the Big-12 will double the ACC in payout. If that happens, it will not be the Big-12 having an issue with a GOR, it may very well be the ACC.
