Interesting comment from Jon Wilner

For those of you concerned with TV markets. Winner was the one who broke this new story. He did a an expansion mailbag. One question was could Cal or Stanford survive? He said no. Here is part of his answer:

Yes, the Bay Area is a huge media market, and that mattered a decade ago when it was all about how many cable homes were in your footprint. Now, the main driver is brand value: Fox and ESPN will pay for the football programs that generate ratings and are most likely to land in prime TV windows. Neither Bay Area team clears those bars.

This bodes well for Clemson!

Yes, everyone knows it’s just about brand value now. The problem is that we’re going to be put on a shelf in the ACC for the next 15 years making 1/3 (at best) what most other schools are pulling in. By the time this GOR deal is done, we may not be the brand we are today. This is a big, big problem if Phillips doesn’t figure something out.

Probably not. Once schools start jumping ship, the "values" are diminished. While this may play out in court, if some of the teams jump to the SEC and another handful to the Big whatever, the grant of rights packages would likely become moot as the ACC would be a shell of itself and of little value for TV rights. You could probably tie this up in court until the ACC is no more.

Problem is CFB’s complete brand value will start a tailspin this year.

I am making a commitment to only watch Clemson games this year. I am boycotting the rest of CFB.
