Bob Bowlsby announced this year's payout at $304 million. WVU receives a full share for the first time. Last year WVU received a payout of $23 million with an 84% share. I mistakenly originally put $307 million in the title. WVU's actual payout is 'only' $30.4 million. Sorry, President Gee and AD Lyons. You have to give $300k back! My bad.

That amount is on par with other leagues...for now.  The Big 10 renegotiated their television package and look to pay out as much as $45 million annually and the SEC is looking for the same type of package.  

On a positive note, it will be good to see OU and Nebraska playing in the same conference/division again.
