Revenue sharing may not happen for several months

The big news in the world of college athletics has been the proposed settlement for House vs NCAA.

Part of this settlement will introduce revenue sharing moving forward. Schools will be able to share as much as $20 million in television revenue per academic year.

Many of the details remain to be hashed out, and as such the timetable for the implementation of revenue sharing has been a mystery.

Ross Dellinger from Yahoo! Sports has been one of the people following this development closely, and he posted on X that the completion of the settlement is still several months away.

This means a final plan likely wouldn’t be ready until after the beginning of the 2024-25 sports calendar.

TNT will carry College Football Playoff games

ESPN owns the broadcast rights to the College Football Playoff, but it appears they don’t intend to host all of the games on their channels.

Front Office Sports has posted on X that ESPN will be subleasing rights to CFP games to TNT for broadcast in the next two seasons.

This surprises me because ESPN usually hordes all the postseason football it possibly can. We don’t know the financial terms or which timeslots they are subleasing to TNT.

Clemson Baseball begins its ACC Tournament today in Charlotte, North Carolina against the Miami Hurricanes. The Canes defeated Louisville, so due to the unique system the ACCT uses, this essentially makes today an elimination game for the Tigers. The winner will advance to the knockout stage regardless of the outcome of Clemson’s game against the Cardinals on Friday.
