Looks like this will bump up the per school payout to $20MM for first and second tier. Last year the SEC paid out $19.5MM per school and is renegotiating its deal after adding A&M and Mizzou.

A little underwhelming after hearing some of the lofty numbers that have been floated around, but still better than the ACC's deal (around $15MM). I wonder if this is enough to get FSU and Clemson to jump.
ummmm, you're not considering third tier. This is what the Big 12 lives on. Making the earning potential pretty much unlimited.

One might not agree with it but it sure is American!
