FSU Board of Trustee is not happy with the new ACC media deal. It sounds good at first...nearly $17M a year but it is locked in through 26-27. That is too long at that revenue, but the most shocking part is that the schools retained their third tier rights in Basketball, but NOT in football. FSU fans and Board of Trustees are right to blast a deal that so clearly favors the basketball schools at the expense of the football schools. Per the CBS link it sounds like Jimbo Fisher likes the idea too.

So, the rumor of FSU to the Big XII is sure to pick up steam and may actually happen. FSU even said they don't care about Duke and UNC's acadmics...it does nothing for them. I suspect BIg XII's new commisioner is already on the phone making arrangements for a visit. Would love to see Nole fans in Austin.
