Also the gross amount withheld between Mizzou and A&M is $25MM, but the net amount is about $3MM less due to A&M getting a portion of the contract signed with Fox last year.
This is accurate. It's amazing how little some of you know and yet you post with complete certainty. Neither Mizzou nor A&M paid a penny to the Big 12, nor will they ever.
The Big 12 isn't a conference...it's a loose configuration of non-equal parties that is still waiting for the next implosion moment.
And don't you love their VERBAL agreement to forfeit TV revenue if one of them leaves!???
What a bunch of morons.
