The issue is once you go down this path it usually means the conference isn’t for long. The big 12 did this with Texas and Oklahoma. See where that landed. The big ten and the SEC don’t pay teams more. Vanderbilt makes same as Alabama. Northwestern same as Ohio st. Etc.Gonzaga worked a deal with the WCC to earn a higher percentage of the conference revenue so it wasn't evenly distributed among all 10 schools. Not sure on the details of that WCC contract, but I'm wondering if the ACC could entice Clemson and Florida State with similar deals, where they get to keep more of the money that they rightfully brought in.
