    It's not all an arm's race. We need they money more and 88 helps us more than 101 helps the SEC

    Looks like the ACC needs to redo their contracts as they are the toughest conference. The quick difference is 27 mil for the orange bowl vs 40 mil for the sugar and rose. That's 101 mil for the ACC.

    ...and this is why we should root for ACC football.

    Already hearing the narrative of the ACC is the top football conference in the country and challenging the SEC's supremacy all over the radio this morning. That narrative = $$$ for Syracuse.

    The ACC has hands down the top basketball conference every year and a football conference that rivals the SEC. These payouts will begin to change.

    The bowl payout arrangement happened when ACC football was really weak. Looks like the BCS contract extends to 2025. The disparity in payoffs between the conferences probably won't be addressed until then.

    If the ACC wants more money for bowls, for now anyway, they need to work on getting 2 teams into the playoff. It could have happened this year if Louisville didn't melt down.

    The playoff will go to 6 or 8 before then, I'd bet.

    Play on the field matters not. Bowls covet eyeballs (fannies in seats, TVs on games). Unfortunately, the ACC lags in these areas and Syracuse is a contributor.

    I thought that in the years in which the Orange Bowl hosts the NC - that the ACC's pot was significantly better. Thought it had to do with the nature of the ACC - Orange Bowl relationship.

    All those B1G state schools = more eyeballs for TV, that's just the way it is.
    The ACC has a lot of private schools that are secondary to the big land grant institutions in those states.

    That's really the difference. ACC didn't get as much as Big 12 in the new arrangement. Texas/Oklahoma were viewed more favorably than Clemson/FSU. I have no clue what, if any, door could be open for renegotiation, but if there was ever a time...

    But in reality, once that money is split up, there's really not a material difference in what we receive versus the SEC teams. More material for the other 3 because of either much higher $ (B1G) or less teams to split it with (Big 12, Pac 12).

    The real cliff is to the Group of 5, yet they still compete in several cases. The jump is so much from what it used to be, would love to know what we spend it all on (is it just getting out of Gross debt?).

    yes! which is why we don't need to worry so much if we get money to spend on things we don't need to make up. we're relatively better off even if the gap in money increases.

    And don't forget that the contracted bowls are mostly "owned" by the hosting visitor's bureau and chamber of commerce. They want fans that travel to fill their hotels and eat in their restaurants.

    If they expand, I hope it goes to 8. Having a bye is a terrible idea.

    Exactly. At the time those conference NY6 bowl deals were being negotiated, the ACC was the fifth wheel conference with the Rose already having the long-time connection between the B1G and PAC and the SEC choosing to partner with the B12 for the Championship Bowl which everyone knew would wind up being the Sugar Bowl.

    Orange Bowl was in danger of being like the Fiesta, Cotton and Peach today without some compromising on the ACC's part.

    Cheers,
    Neil

    Through the first three years of the new system the contracted bowls have each had two rounds not being part of the CFP.

    Here is where each rank in terms of number of viewers:

    2016 Rose - USC/PSU - 15.740 million viewers
    2015 Rose - Stanford/Iowas - 13.522 million viewers
    2016 Orange - FSU/Michigan - 11.441 million viewers
    2016 Sugar - Oklahoma/Auburn - 9.515 million viewers
    2015 Sugar - Ole Miss/Okla State - 8.940 million viewers
    2014 Orange - Georgia Tech/Miss. State - 8.940 million viewers

    As we can see, nothing outside of a CFP semi or final, beats the Rose Bowl in terms of tradition and viewership.

    Cheers,
    Neil
