“We’ve sat down with the folks downtown [in WVU’s finance department],” Luck said. “We’ve looked ahead 12 years, which is the length of the Big 12 grant-of-rights [media contract].

“The Big 12 has laid out for us what we can expect [in regard to income]. Same with IMG [and its third-tier deal with WVU]. The TV and IMG numbers are guaranteed. So the financial folks have said we can have X amount of excess. They’ve said we can bond the amount and get one big chunk now.
