Big 12 & Fox to sign long-term cable rights deal

Saw this as I as about to step away for the day, so I can't even do a quick analysis, but I wanted to get this up before doing so. Key takeaway from the article, which is in line with my post-realignment madness belief that the long-term future of the Big 12 sans Nebraska is much brighter than I would have believed a year ago: What does that deal bring beside a lot of zeroes? Think stability. Texas A&M will be guaranteed the $20 million annually from the conference that it negotiated last season to stay put and not bolt to the SEC. Everybody else will be at or near that figure. In short, the remaining 10 members in the conference will be flush with cash, rewarded not jumping ship when it looked like the Big 12 might become an afterthought. There will be no need to look elsewhere for a better deal. Does this mean that the Aggies will stop bitching about the benjamins now?
