I hope the tier 3 thing doesn't queer the ND admission.
If they value dollars, it might. Simple math of ACC versus Big 12 (with rumored esculators for 2 more teams and CCG) looks like this...
Think what they could get in 10 years...
If they go ACC they make 170 million in TV money.
If they go Big 12 they make estimated 240 million (20 mil + 2 mil for 12 teams + 2 mil for CCG) + tier 3 money (If Kansas gets 8 mil, ND could reasonably see 10 mil). So for example could be... 240 + 100 = 340 million.
Almost double the money over 10 years, that's huge.
