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.
The contract has automatic escalators if quality schools are added in an expansion. If the FSU/Clemson rumors pan out, we're at about 24. Then the conference championship game is worth at least another 2 million per, putting it at 26. Finally, everyone owns their tier 3 rights, and most schools worth a damn can get at least 4. So, basically if the Big 12 picks off 2 good schools from the ACC, they are all in the $30 million club.
