With Texas and OU departing, the Big 12 will not make more money than the ACC going forward. I can’t find the chart right now, but projected ACC TV revenues are expected to outstrip projected Big 12 revenues in the next year or two (after Texas and OU leave) and will continue to stay ahead of the Big 12.
I don’t disagree that the FSU boosters and fans are out of control lunatics. But they wouldn’t want the Big 12, being that that conference makes less money than the ACC and has no football powers. So it wouldn’t make sense to start a legal battle over GOR to leave for the Big12, where revenue projections are less. The SEC or Big10 maybe, but I don’t think those conferences want any part of a drawn out GOR legal battle that probably won’t end well for FSU.
I wasn't talking pre GOR expiration. At the end of the GOR it will be hard for FSU to sign onto a new ACC GOR given their antics.
I agree with the payouts, but the FSU AD does not. He gave a presentation on how the B12 would pass the ACC. He went full Kook and you should never go full Kook. Now the FSU world is full of Kooks. They have become the WV of conference expansion.
It will be hard to come back from that and sign onto an extended GOR in 2034. It can be done, but the antikookery needs to start now. That probably also means firing the AD.
Then again if the SEC really does want FSU, this is all moot.
