Clemson AD: '80 percent' of new ACC media rights contract generated by football - CBSSports.com

Why does this matter? Because if Clemson & F$U were to leave the ACC for the Big 12, that's a huge chunk of revenue lost. You'd think that ESPN would want a new deal, we'd get less money and it would be hard for the ACC to stand on it's feet in terms of football, especially if the next domino to fall would be Georgia Tech and Va. Tech leaving for the SEC, which has been rumored. I'm extremely worried that if Clemson and FSU bolt, the ACC is all but dead and Maryland is going to find it hard finding a home in one of the remaining conferences, especially after reading the next story below. I'll have more on this tonight.

My take - We did this big conference redraft a little while back. I thought Maryland was undervalued then and I think they're a little undervalued here.
