Among the other reasons Kliavkoff cited that for it being a bad deal financially is that the Bruins' travel costs could nearly triple -- to $27 million -- if the school chartered flights to Big Ten schools for all teams, not just football and men's and women's basketball.
The regents, as expected, did not take any action but the chair said if they blocked UCLA's move, “it would be a big deal. There would be a lot of people happy and a lot of people upset.” No matter what the regents do, he said, there could be legal action.
Yeah... first off, his numbers for charters are way off.. football team charters aren't the same as a soccer/baseball/tennis team etc.. AND there is no reason to think every one of those teams would get chartered for every game. Is Lincoln that much further than Boulder ??
Because he probably took the biggest possible estimation that has no chance of being used by ucla to balloon the number to make a half decent argument. An argument that still fails because ucla stands to make 60m+ per year more, so even at 25m+ they come out ahead.
