Deal is reportedly worth $90M - most valuable in NCAA history.

Haha. This and this.

I cannot understand what all the hype surrounding ND is. They aren't very good at sports, it is located in Indiana, and they are irrelevant in today's day and age to everyone outside of their state.

Huh?

Those 3 cities are some of the largest markets in the US.
For some reason people love them and they have a large following.

They haven't been very good, but the point is, irrelevant teams don't have that big of a following (larger than us) and their own TV channel.

They have a huge following for some reason. Especially in areas where college football is typically not followed (no good local team)

Right... so in the grand scheme of college football they are irrelevant. NYC, Boston, and Chicago don't scream college football. Baton Rouge, Austin, Tallahassee, Tuscaloosa... those names do. CFB is a MUCH bigger thing in the south than anywhere else.

Forbes has them as the 2nd most valuable football program, have their own TV channel, had their own BCS rule, and were now invited to the CFB playoff meeting (meaning they won't get left out of the playoff if worthy).

Irrelevant college football programs don't have that (along with their following).

They're unsuccessful (aside from last year) in recent years. Not irrelevant.

So just to use the 4 cities you talekd about in the south, they add up to just over 1.2 Million people. Let that sink in. Less than half the size of Chicago.

I agree football is King in the south, but the rest of the country loves CFB too.

But thier viewership is only slightly more than ours so why don't we have a deal that is closer to ND's?

Notre Dame 3,906,364 2.5
South Carolina 3,499,875 2.2

The above numbers are avg viewership and avg rating for 2013. SC was the 11th most watched team in the country, ND was the 9th. Bama avged 2.5 milion more veiwers per game than ND.

I bet our avg viewership would be better than NDs if you take out the Costal game which was only shown on ESPN 3.

http://www.goodbullhunting.com/2013/...ason-final-sec

No one deabtes that ND has a large national fan base of bandwagoners but it does not translate into viewership. Their fans must buy a ton of gear to make this deal worth it to UA.
