It's a little off topic, but this story is one that every fan of a BE team should be paying attention to.
CBS SPORTS AND SOUTHEASTERN CONFERENCE AGREE TO BLOCKBUSTER
15 YEAR CONTRACT EXTENSION
Deal Includes Broadcast, Digital, Internet, Wireless, Video-on-Demand and
Enhanced Highlight Rights Across all CBS Sports Properties
The Big East too chose to partner with ESPN and Comcast over going it alone (technically, with Fox) as the Big Ten did. Of course, our neighbors to the South are likely receiving far more scratch than we could ever dream of.
Pay attention, because the conference may start thinking about expansion next year (as will others). The bowl deals have two years left, and there are plenty of other dominoes out there, just waiting for a butterfly in Malaysia (actually, isn't it Chicago?) to flap its wings and set off a tornado that will knock them all down.
