...interesting that Mike Slive and his team, did a good job of negotiating their media contracts. Appraently, based on information by Edward Ascholl fo ESPN and quote from Slive, the media contracts will be "looked into" each year to determine whether the conference is getting what is should based on its school and media markets...it is a zero sum game so that no school will receive less than what they originally were promised...unless the conference falls apart but it will most likely not... hey why couldn't the BE/ACC do this:

"The SEC also isn’t worried about financial security with the addition of a new team. Slive said in the TV contracts with the SEC, there are agreements in place that deal with the conference’s makeup, in case the league adds or loses a school. There are also negations in place dealing with “look ins.” Look ins are used in order to help the conference adapt during its 15-year agreements when things change, like the landscape of the league and college football.

Basically, the conference is going to see to it that schools aren’t getting shorted revenue because of a new mouth to feed. "

“So with the provision for a look in, we will sit down and make sure that at the end of the day, given the composition of our league, that we have exactly what we bargained for when we started.
