Big East asked for what?



Dennis Dodd over at CBS Sports posted an article 2 days ago about the Big East's TV Negotiations. Now, I know we are leaving, but the absurdity of it was worth posting here so all of us Nunesers can have a good ol' laugh. When the Big East began it's negotiations over the conference's new TV deal with ESPN, the conference initially asked for ... .wait for it ..... 300 MILLION DOLLARS per year! Yes, 300 million dollars for a conference that had already lost a whole bunch of members like Syracuse and Pitt and was replacing them with schools such as Central Florida and Houston.

It would have been the largest deal in the nation, surpassing the Pac 12's contract with ESPN and Fox, which is believed to be around $250 million per year. In December, CBS reported that the rights were only worth 60 - 80 million dollars a year. Needless to say, this rediculous offer posed by the Big East was laughed at by ESPN, and the exclusive window closed leaving the Big East with no TV deal as of this writing.
