If the sugar is getting $80 now ($40 SEC - $40 Big XII), they Orange should get at least $80, plus an extra on top for inflation/market dynamics. I could see $90/100 ($60/70-$30).Conservative estimates are $5-7 million the first year and then over time reach $10 million to possibly $15 million a year. I'll believe the $15 million per year when I see it.
But at least the conference has a more viable network than the Pac-12 thanks to its partnership with ESPN. Next the conference needs to fix the Orange Bowl deal. Only getting $27.5 million each year the Orange is not part of the playoff (which is less than $2 million per year per team) has put us slightly behind in comparison with the B12 which gets $4 million per team from their Sugar Bowl contract. This despite the fact that the Orange has been getting slightly better ratings than the Sugar in the comparative years. If that keeps up it should increase the overall value of the Orange to at least $70 million (up from the current $55 million) with the ACC getting $40 million and the B1G or SEC rep getting $30 million or when ND is the representative ACC getting $55 million and ND $15 million.
The Rose and Sugar would also go up to $90-$100, so the SEC/B1G would be $45-$50+$15 ($30/2=$15), putting them in the neighborhood of $60-70. The Big XII and PAC-12 would be $45-50. The Big XII number would equal the ACC/SEC/B1G per team payouts, and the PAC would slightly lag (but would get the prestige of the Rose Bowl). The SEC and B1G would still get the prestige of playing in 1.5 tie-in games. The ACCeoukd get a wind fall in the very unlikely chance that ND was ranked *just* right. And ND would be special, because... ND.
