ESPN and Fox are giving boatloads of money to the Pac-12, and the amount will almost double over the next decade. Wilner got his hands on a confidential email from Larry Scott.
The source of the data you’re about to read is a confidential email from commissioner Larry Scott to the league’s presidents and chancellors.
It’s dated May 1, 2011, a few days before the conference announced the $3 billion, 12-year deal with Fox and ESPN.
2013: $185,000,000 million
2014: $194,250,000 million
2015: $204,540,000 million
2016: $215,060,000 million
2017: $226,140,000 million
2018: $237,780,000 million
2019: $250,020,000 million
2020: $262,900,000 million
2021: $276,420,000 million
2022: $290,660,000 million
2023: $305,620,000 million
2024: $321,340,000 million
The ESPN/Fox paychecks get pooled with other revenue (BCS, March Madness, etc) … and the conference retains a portion for expenses … and then it gets distributed.
But five years from now, for example, we can assume that each school will receive $30 million (give or take) from the combination of the ESPN/Fox windfall, the football playoff/bowl money and the March Madness payouts.
Do you think those payouts arrive via those comically oversized checks?
- Faraudo spoke with 2014 recruits Luke Rebenzer and Vic Enwere, both of whom are excited to join the Bears. Tony Franklin and Rebenzer have talked about the strong possibility that Rebenzer will redshirt or grayshirt. Now that he has committed to Cal, Rebenzer has cancelled his plans to check out Air Force and a few Ivy Leagues this summer. Enwere is excited about Cal's academics and plans to continue refining his pass-catching skills.
