And I agree completely there

And this is my point. This is where additional value is derived for the networks. I don't see that value being significant enough to warrant huge sums of money in the middle of a television contract though.
One of the best case scenarios for the SEC would be if they had arbitration over expansion. That said though one of the issues of arbitration would be precisely this. To CBS what does adding Texas A&M and Missouri do to the 9 or 10 Saturday's we don't have them on? There will be added value there, no doubt. Not a windfall though. That comes when the existing deals expire.
