It looks like the remaining 8 members will still get around $7 million. New

members will get around $2.5 million. If true, then Aresco did a great job, plus he just kicked the MWC right in the nuts.

No AAC/CUSA/Sunbelt merger would have kept our $7 million for the next 10 years.

"Conference USA schools currently receive less than a million dollars annually in television revenue. The amount they will receive is still being finalized, but the television revenue will be more than $2 million at the start of the deal and rise significantly from there. Incumbent AAC members are still expected to average about $7 million annually over the course of the current ESPN television deal, which runs through 2031-32.

This move would limit the ability of the Mountain West to enter Texas, as it gives the AAC four schools in the state and no obvious options for the Mountain West to add."
