Hey, let me in on this one, Schmed.

The conferences all split the same payout (at least initially). Assuming the total revenue from the 2004 BCS games is about $90 million (!shocking, ain't it?!), then ...

the ACC, Big East, Big XII and SEC each get $17,015,555. The Pac 10 and Big Ten each gets $3,128,889, because the Rose Bowl pays the Pac 10 and Big Ten directly for playing in it. If a Big 10 or Pac 10 end up in the title game, then the money goes directly to the conference and it all balances out.

The only way that a conference can gain the upper-hand, is if it has two participants. This year, it could be Texas & Ohio State, so the Big XII and Big 10 would each get an extra 4.5 million.

The really interesting part of the BCS money is what happens to the rest of it.

The BCS will contribute $6 million to other D-I and I-AA conferences to be used in support of the overall health of college football. In addition, the BCS will give $600,000 in other payments, including a $200,000 stipend to the National Football Foundation and College Football Hall of Fame for administering the BCS Standings.

Conference USA, MAC, Mountain West and WAC each gets $1 million. The Sun Belt gets $480,000. D-IAA leagues Atlantic 10, Big Sky, Gateway, Mid-Eastern, Ohio Valley, Southland, Southern, and SWAC each gets $190,000.

There's a lot of money out there and it's a shame (I guess, kinda, maybe) that the SEC might only get paid once. But, you gotta have two teams up near the top to double-dip. This year it just happens that it might be Big XII and the Big 10.

As always - love the site.


Kevin, thanks for the visit, but don't distract me with simple facts when I'm kvetching AND imagining a deep dark conspiracy.
