The Big 12 has announced that a revenue-sharing plan for all Tier I and Tier II television money has been accepted… IF the league’s members all sign over their TV rights to the league office for a minimum of six years.
So there’s still a pretty big “if” hanging out there. Also, this does nothing for the Tier III rights which would include Texas’ Longhorn Network.
In other words, today’s announcement is a PR move — possibly designed to help ease the fears of potential Big 12 expansion targets like BYU. But officially, nothing changes until each school agrees to hand its TV rights over to the league. And that’s not happened yet.
