    Smaller conferences crafting plan to share playoff revenue

    The “group of five” conferences are working to finalize a three-tier playoff revenue distribution system that rewards the conference with the best team and the conference with the best overall performance, CBSSports.com has learned.

    In this proposed system, more than half the group's roughly $86-million playoff pot would be distributed among the Big East, Mountain West, Mid-American Conference, Conference USA and Sun Belt as guaranteed base shares, according to a source with direct knowledge of the discussions. The source expects those shares to be evenly split, but added discussions are ongoing...

    To be quite honest, I am not sure. I was hoping that someone on the board would have more insight. All I could garner from the article is that the "little guys" were still getting a little piece of pie and were trying to determine how to slice it up among them.

    86 out of 500, I think. That's a very little piece of pie to share with a LOT of schools...
