The days of the Mountain West not being a player in college football media are about to be done and dusted as reports are saying the league is about to sign a TV rights deal for seven years and $116 million dollars. If you're doing the math along with us that means each of the soon to be twelve members of the conference will earn close o $18 million dollars a piece.
Crazy thought, right? I mean seriously, just 10 years ago this league wasn't on TV on a regular basis if at all depending on where you lived, let along allowing it's schools to rake in money that puts them closer to even footing with the big dogs of the college sports world.
Heck, just a year ago this league was struggling to figure out what it would do post Boise State and San Diego State taking off for the Big East. Now with both back in the fold and twelve teams in the league clearly there is more interest than ever from the media and that shows in what they are paying for the TV rights.
