Big 12 (-2) Announces TV Deal

So Fox Sports and the Big XII have announced their 13-year deal worth reportedly $90M.

This, along with the current TV deal with ESPN will bring the conference's "total TV rights revenue" to $130M (through 2016).  By comparison, the SEC got $205M last year, and our new home The B1G generated $220M.

Now, assuming that the revenue is distributed equally (which I don't believe it will be), that's $13M per Big XII member.  That's the big announcement?  That's the carrot that Beebe dangled in front of several remaining members to keep them together?

...Oklahoma athletic director Joe Castiglione said the contract validates why the league’s media partners encouraged the remaining schools to stay together.

"Through this agreement, the Big 12 institutions will generate per-member revenue at the highest levels of college athletics," he said.

You think so Joe?  When the SEC is distributing about $17M per team, and The B1G would (if revenue stayed flat and Nebraska was a full member) distribute a bit over $18M per team?

What say you, fellow Husker fans?  Is this a dud?  Did I miss something in the story that makes it a good deal?  Did we miss out on something good, or did we get out while the gettin's good?
