The other side of the ACC TV deal

Well, evidently TV money is a zero-sum game. They giveth and they taketh away. And guess who they taketh away from? The Big East - story here. Well, what do you think - you lose Miami, VaTech and BC and expect to keep the same TV deal? Don't think so. And while hoops will improve their situation, it won't make up for the loss, even bringing in 50 new teams.

Well, if you were an ACC hater before, you will REALLY be an ACC hater now. People already don't like how much TV coverage we get. Now, more and more when you turn on the dial, it will be even more ACC. The article cites that TWICE as many ACC games will be televised by ESPN.
