Maybe it has already been mentioned here, but didn't the deal with FOX increase in value if the Big East added a team?  Does anyone remember what it increased to?

The original deal from 2013 was $500M for 12 years. If we added 2 teams (Dayton and SLU were rumored at the time) it would increase to $600M.

So the question becomes if they just increase the yearly amount and prorate the difference (halfway through the deal, so change the $250M owed to $275M) or if they will renegotiate terms on the basis that a state school like UConn brings more attention and the shift to a 20-game schedule provides more inventory.

Maybe this is another reason UConn is $40M in debt in athletics.  New lockers......cannot wait to hear how often and costly these are to be replaced after a year or two of heavy use.

almost guaranteed this was paid through donations exclusively. One guy alone gave $1 million for it.

My buddy was in a Power 5 football locker room that was also entirely donor-funded and noticed every locker was named after a donor ($50K to do that).  He was amused to see his daughter's father in law's name on one and he said to me "damn, should have made them kick in more for the wedding."
What, you still throwing up bricks? What is this, a Masons convention? Clank, clank! I need, like, a welding torch to play in this league! I got an idea, let's just stop right now and gather up all these bricks and let's build a shelter for the homeless so maybe your mother will have a place to stay

Maybe they should have asked for those donations to cover the nearly $1200 a year each student is paying to support the athletics program.

Chico's believe it or not, that was actually a different Bob's Store!
They sold t-shirts for a $1 with their logo on it, so I would buy a bunch when I was home on break and everyone wore for our intramural teams.

Bob's Store is actually still in existence and is now owned by the TJ Maxx Company.

I had no idea, thanks for the correction.  I just remember having the shirt and like everyone on the floor seemed to, or maybe it was one of the intramural teams we played on.  Memory getting fuzzier by the year.

They are like the urban wear brand of TJMaxx and it's only New England.

Bobs Discount Furniture has the annoying TV commercials with Bob saying " I doubt it."

Top 5 teams get buys. Bottom 6 play each other.  The three winners of those games play the top 3 seeds. 4 and 5 play each other.

FWIW, Calhoun is just as bad.

This just in:

Many extremely successful, highly paid coaches are arrogant.

Who'da thunk it?

my guess it that it will be identical to the old 11 team Big Ten Tournament:
