Once again I am your focus LOL

That is the 1st I have heard on that revenue split as well but I will use the google and see what I can find. Of course you should be able to do that as well rather than just accepting some false claims by ductman and then automatically taking the opposite position from me. That's called intellectual honesty.

Howard and ibleed

I heard Olsen on the radio citing what he said was a credible source. I tend to agree with both of you. It was interesting to hear, but until someone else with credibility on the topic can back it up, I think we have to take it at face value. Either way, it is a great deal for Utah.

As for mid-majors needing fans....yes Howard, you are correct. What may surprise you is the number of mid-major schools that have a larger fan base than Utah;even with the PAC ties.

Jon Wilner had a good article on College Hotline with some great details of the PAC12 deal. He basically said that there are some expenses that will come out first and it is an escalating contract staring with $180mil the first year and increasing to well over $250mil in the final year. Giving each team about $15mil per and $25mil per in the final year.

That would be great for Utah. Since the deal starts in 2012, by the time Utah starts receiving full share that's when the big money will start coming in. Way to go Utah. Props.

"BYU is dependent on their Name, Brand, Cache, and Legacy"

What Brand, Chache, and Legacy does byu have? Obviously all the BCS Confrences don't see it or they would of invited you.

Notre Dame is the only Independent school that has Brand, Cache, and Legacy because every BCS Conference wants them, especially the BIG 10.

Just admit dude, your jealous of the U's PAC 12 invite!
