Aztecs expect $6.4 million from Big East deal

So here it is, the SD State Aztecs expect to get $6.4 million from their football only membership in the Mountain West. The report also states that San Diego State receives a measly $1.2 million from its Mountain West affiliation. Reports of the Mountain West payout had ranged from $1.4 million to $1.6 over the previous year, making this figure the lowest so far. The total payout for the Mountain West last year was $2.6 million (See Jack Graham's presentation for the proposed stadium at CSU for this figure), which is less than half of SD St.'s expected Big East payout. As the Aztecs will have, other than for football, a relatively cheap traveling schedule due to the olympic sport affiliation with the Big West (a California bussing league), this number is quite advantageous for them. However, this is only expected payouts, which could change drastically between now and when the actual contracts are signed. Additionally, how will the Mountain West fare in its new media deals after killing "the Mtn." and coming into renegotiation next year? By stating the MW payout as only $1.2 million and pushing the upper edge of the Big East potential payout, is this a fact to be shared or posturing to reassure panicky fans? After speculation that BSU was possibly hedging its bet on joining the Big East, this type of response is to be expected. We'll know for sure in the fall.
