How many times would a Big East fan have to listen to an ESPN commentator’s teardown of a Big East team this year? Well, way too often for my liking.
That coupled with rewarding the ACC in raiding the Big East was an obvious ploy to drive down the market value on what ESPN would never get due to shelf space for its programming. They spent hours talking up their media property and just could not handle the Big East turning down a bad offer the year before. Guess what: the Big East will turn ESPN down again!
I say good riddance to the overhyped sports network! How much more can anyone take listening to the overhyped ACC in football. Tune in to ESPN and you get the full dose due to a horrific TV deal. Thanks NC for that piece of work. I think PENN and Harvard business schools just laughed all the way to contract law 101.
Chris Bevilacqua is the lead negotiator for the Big East. His landmark accomplishments with the PAC 12 and the Rose Bowl were epic. He is an otherworldly media mastermind. Chris is the Crimson Tide of the sports media world. Mike Aresco and Chris Bevilacqua will complete a solid Big East TV deal that will capitalize on Chris’s expertise in the 3rd tier media rights deal.
I’ll say it again because it makes me feel so good in saying it: The Big East turns down ESPN AGAIN!
