From a purely financial perspective (which, I'm not sure is the right ...

... perspective, to be clear), the answer depends on what that $8 billion payout drops to. If it drops to $7.5b, it will have been brilliant. If it drops to $500 million, it will have been super dumb. I suppose one could get a prelim read on this from Sumner's kids and the cellphone folks (CBS/AT&T).

Plus there's the issue that Toolie identifies below: how much is the NCAA sucking out for itself.

Tbh, I don't really have a great read on either of those issues, but in general, I'm a bit of a small "c" conservative on this particular issue.
