Something you've pointed out before and I think is true...

The ACC in total has a bunch of fans, but they are spread out in more schools and those fans are not necessarily fans of ACC football. For me personally, I'm interested in VT and the top tier teams. I'm not watching Wake play BC.

As a comparison, I would say that the ACC diehard basketball fan is really no different to a network than the SEC diehard football fan...they are fans not only of their school, but of the conference as well. Unfortunately for the ACC, football pays more.

I think that the conference payouts are at least roughly proportional to the TV ratings. Where the ACC is behind in terms of proportion is the lag time in the supplemental income from the conf network. When that all kicks in (and I know you are still skeptical), there may continue to be differences in revenue but I think it will, on the whole, be proportional to fan interest (i.e., ratings) and perhaps buffered a little, though not fully offset, by the disproportionate interest in ACC basketball and ND sports as a whole.

Again, jmo.
