Its not a myth at all. Between the two of them, they paid almost $27MM to the big 12. Even if that gets distributed to the schools, you asked if the schools are willing to pay $1MM each, but they really aren't, its still found money. Its basically a big pile of money that gets deposited in everyone's account, earns interest for a few months, then goes out to the ACC.
