Article out of Raleigh discussing Big Ten tv deal negotiations and possible future impact on conferences 'like" the ACC at http://www.wralsportsfan.com/big-ten-te ... t/15652491" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

The ACC did not do itself any favors when they allowed Notre Dame special privileges which went against the Big Ten. This is one of the primary reasons the Big Ten supported the Big 12 on having a championship game and work to deny the ACC the ability to have any type of divisions they preferred which could have helped the Notre Dame situation and the ACC. This does not include the raid of Maryland.

While it somewhat surprising the Big 12 has made a decision to not expand right now, there is probably something the Big 12 knows that will benefit this league down the road.

I could not put my figure on it right away when the Big 12 officials stated the windfall of the Big Ten new contract would help the Big 12.

It is becoming very clear the Big Ten will have the opportunity to pick any ACC school it prefers when the ACC GOR expire in 2028.

The Big 12 will be positioned very well with ESPN having a better opportunity to build a solid league for a network without having so many small private schools and can bring Florida State and Clemson into an expanded Big 12 once the ACC GOR expire in 2028.

If the Big 12 is smart and successful in rebranding the LHN into the Big 12 network this summer and can hold off on taking any Group of five schools, they may have their pick of any six ACC schools when their new contract will up for renewal in 2026.

It is quite possible the Big Ten will come back to finish it plan to take UVa and North Carolina and allow the SEC to pick NC State and Virginia Tech.

This will leave the ACC vulnerable to any school wanting to join any power league that is making much more revenue.

Florida State, Miami Fla, Clemson, Georgia Tech, Louisville and Pitt will make up an excellent 16 member league for the future Big 12.

Notre Dame is a wild card and could finally join the Big Ten which would make some additional changes in which schools end up in a new league.

Again it is finally making sense on why the Big 12 has decided to hold up with expansion based on the new Big Ten contract windfall which has placed the ACC on critical alert.

ESPN will be better served building up a ten team Big 12 league and bring in schools that ESPN believe will benefit the rebranded Big 12 formally LHN network.

I hope an ACC Cable Network doesn't kill their syndication deal with Raycom Sports. Since the SEC axed their syndication deal, the ACC has been on free broadcast TV in every major market in the USA every Saturday during the football and basketball seasons. It's crazy good promotion for the league.

It appears that some of the ACC fan bases are starting to get a little worried about potential moves by the Big 12 to strengthen that league with expansion and starting a Big 12 conference network.

The only way a league has made additional money in the past is with expansion and creation of conference networks.

Should the ACC be worried?

It is probably in the best interest of both the ACC and Big 12 that both leagues improve in financial stability to avoid helping the SEC and Big Ten become more stronger that they potentially are by becoming vulnerable to future raids.
