What can FSU expect to make by participating in a BCS bowl this year? I know the payout per team is 17-18 million, but how much of that goes directly to the ACC vs FSU?
Also, do we get any kind of monetary bonus (as a school) for winning the ACC?
I have tried googling and cannot find a concrete answer. Thanks in advance for anyone that knows this information.
I believe, but am not 100% certain: FSU gets an allotment for expenses (does not even begin to cover the real world costs), and the rest goes into a pool along with the rest of the bowl revenue, and that is divided into 13 slices, one to the ACC lamebrains, and one to each of the 12 member schools.
Pretty sure it will end up being 3-5 mil with the ACC's terrible sharing deal. I mean if your team can't get to a bowl why should we split out bowl money with you? I don't know if the Big12 is different but at least their teams go to bowls.
Less than what they would get if they were sitting at home, like Maryland and Wake (because of expenses).
FSU gets paid their expenses for the trip and the rest is then divided up between the league members and the league office. Why the league offices gets/deserves an equal share of all revenue is one of the baffling things to me. I don't believe the other BCS league offices run in this fashion.
It is pretty infuriating that the likes of Wake with its 4K undergraduate enrollment and lower commitment to the sport gets the same cut we do. The top bowl/tv revenue football oriented teams are getting the shaft in this league (at least for football money).
