There is an interesting article on Mr.SEC which posted HIGHLIGHTS from an internal Mizzouri Tigers study. In that document, they compared their current B12 payout to the current SEC payout. Of particular interest is what Missouri believes the new SEC TV contract would be worth. According to this internal Missouri document:

* The school believes those renegotiated TV deals could earn Missouri up to $12 million more per year than it currently makes with the Big 12. (If those numbers are correct: $17 million plus $12 million would equal $29 million per SEC school under a new contract. That’s the equivalent of about $406 million per year for what would be the league’s 14 schools. Currently the league makes a little more than $200 million per year from its deals with CBS and ESPN. If MU — and the SEC — believe doubling the intake is possible, they must also be factoring in the possibility that a network like ESPN will have more money to spend now that the Big East is considerably less valuable. We believe that number seems awfully high, but we’re going from the numbers reported by the AP and not the numbers from the actual 45-page document the AP examined. In other words, something could be getting lost in the translation.)

If Missouri believes the renegotiated SEC contract could net them $29m per year, where do you put the renegotiated ACC contract?
 
The ACC contract allows for renegotiation, but no competition (bidsding) from other networks. I'll make an assumption that the SEC contract has similar language.

That being said, would ESPN/CBS really double their rights fees when there is no one to bid against?

Unless these networks are now run by NBA owners, I'd be really suprised if that happened.
