Oregon has reportedly made its decision if, in fact, an offer comes from the Big Ten.

Oregon is prepared to accept an invitation from the Big Ten, should the conference ultimately choose to expand, according to a report from The Oregonian. The report said the source familiar with Oregon’s thinking “conveyed a quiet confidence that the process of conference realignment will play out with the Ducks ultimately being invited to the Big Ten and accepting the opportunity.”

The Ducks would not hesitate in accepting the invite, as the school understands it would receive less than a full share of Big Ten Conference revenue, at least initially, should it be invited to join the league.

The Big Ten’s potential offer to Oregon and Washington is expected to be $35 million to $40 million each annually, however, longer travel to face foes in the Midwest and East Coast could create some hesitancy, according to Yahoo Sports. Meanwhile, the Associated Press reported that a Big Ten invitation for the Ducks and Huskies would start with an annual payout in the low-to-mid $30 millions.

The schools also could receive an advance on future payments to boost the total to more than $40 million in the first several years of their Big Ten membership, and the advances would be subtracted out of future payouts.

Those initial figures would be about half of the share for other Big Ten schools, but significantly more than the proposed media rights deal from Apple with the Pac-12.
