UNC AD Bubba Cunningham Taking Measured Approach for UNC as National Landscape Shifts

Except ESPN is only in for 2/3 of the Big 12 media payout. For the added schools to get a full share, Fox too would have to agree. And the contract with Fox does not have a clause where Fox had to pay for any P5 schools added.

It’s not written in the contract (which is never a good thing in terms of contract certainty), but FOX essentially agreed via handshake that they would pay full shares

Oh I didn’t know that. I guess Fox wanted to leave a way out for themselves. I suppose if the Big 12 adds schools Fox approves of then Fox will pay, otherwise no.
