Full commercialization of college sports is here. Pretty soon the Quik Trip Cowboys will be playing the Casey Cyclones at Kicker Speaker Field in Boone Pickens Stadium.

If Brett Yormark changes the name of the conference to the Big Allstate Conference for only $2-3M per school per year, he should get a one way ticket to Guantanamo. Just abhorrent

I read that the were dropping the “Big” from the name and keeping “12”. Since we have 16 teams, this makes it all the more hilarious to me. I’m all in on the “12 Good Hands w/ Allstate Conference”.

I’m kind of dumb but here’s my take

It would be a decent chunk of change for each school (about 3x what gets distributed annually) but that’s a one time payment or set of payments and you’re foregoing 20% of revenue forever so CVC needs to increase annual revenue by >20% or it’s a long run loss. Also, schools are only getting a portion of that money and I’m not really sure why the Big 12 needs to keep much of it at all unless it’s to invest right back into CVC.

I also see it as another puppet master along with ESPN and FOX. They would have some pull teams to add and kick from the conference and other decisions like renaming the conference. It would also likely require its own grant of rights type deal locking teams in which I would rather do after the ACC folds and really just rather not do at all in case OSU has the opportunity to leave.

Seems like the juice is not worth the squeeze to me.

Must admit that “Allstate” is a good part of the name for our conference if we have to go down this path. Better than most other corporate names.

I hope they are dumb enough to lock him into a long-term deal, he drags the program to the bottom and they don’t recover in my lifetime. They are Big 10 Nebraska. It’s coming. Just gotta be patient.
