We got paid less for years than legacy Big East members

Just the way it works but still a great deal for 6 CUSA members if they do in fact get paid $2.5 million range until the end of the current tv contract. We also have at least $30 million in exit fees if not more depending on when UCF, Cincinnati and Houston leave for Big12. I almost hope Texas and Oklahoma get into SEC next year so those 3 can leave earlier and pay more of a UCONN type exit.

This whole thing could blow up in the next 5 years and G5 schools end up shaking up into more regional thing that our fans seem to want so desperately. AAC while the best set up we have ever had was basically our CUSA days and the original CUSA we joined with Louisville and all the Basketball schools was also pretty damn awesome but no matter what our fans seem to never embrace it. Not sure if it is ACC little brother mind set but nothing seems to make our fans happy except being unhappy.
