Ya, what way is that. Buyout 5 games a year for 3-4 years all while FBall is only making about $5mm max from the AAC TV contract? Oh, ESPN will handle it cause they care enough.
U are talking about multiple P5 buyouts, some mid season. That should be easy. If u look around OOC scheduling is taking place way into the future, asking people to change is going to cost, a ton. Lets just look at 2021:
P5’s: UTAH, Az State, Baylor, WSU, Virginia, USC, that’s six for those counting.
i am sure two of those schools would need $1mm to cancel. Then u have Boise St. Never-mind the rest of ur schedule that has to see contracts torn up and at what cost?
I know, if there is a will there is a way. Then there is reality. Oh so 2022 has 5 P5’s and multiple return dates for G5’s. The 2023 has 6 P5’s. Sure they can make it work as they have the massive $5mm payout from the AAC vs maintaining their independence and paying nothing as far as buyouts and burning bridges.
Sure there is a will for all these schools to help BYU/AAC scramble to fill their voids. Should work out fine, cause there is will.
