Why Syracuse will be in the ACC in 2012

I’m sure we would like to get moving during the 2012 season, but we all know it comes down to the financials. Below I've run the numbers and it just makes sense to follow WVU and leave this year:

New ACC Contract ($/Team): $14 million (could be up to $15 million)

Current BE Contract ($/Team): $3.7 million (Side note: AHAHAHAHHAAH)


There is also a benefit to the existing ACC members because of this new tv contract that would start as soon as Pitt and Syracuse come aboard. This would total $24 million per year (The old contract was ~$12million each). If they put some of that towards Pitt and Syracuse coming in, let’s say $9.7 million each, it just might work.

Expected buy out cost:……………………$20 million
Difference in contract value:……………...$10.3 million
Possible ACC contribution:……………...$9.7 million
-——————————————————————————
Actual cost to Syracuse and Pitt: ………$0
Additional $ to ACC:………………………$4.6million-$18.6million
………………………………………………(Per School: $329k – $1.33million)


Screwing the Big East -………………….Priceless

This doesn't include any reduction in our buyout fee due to WVU leaving the schedule all funked up, but this basically seems like this is the worst case scenario and the ACC/Syracuse/Pitt are still making money.

Let’s get going!
