  1. You don't say, Phil? Or what? You'll stop sponsoring SEC and B1G teams with the Swoosh and Jumpman? Purchase fewer commercials on FOX and ESPN?
  2. That right there is some aggie-level delusion. Too funny
  3. I know WVU fans are hoping ND joins the ACC as full members bc they're convinced they'll be #16. But, who knows?
  4. ND vs Michigan Played a total of 43 times since their first game in 1887 with many gaps in the storied rivalry. That's not to say it wouldn't be marquee as conference mates in a revamped B1G. I won't be surprised if ND stays in the ACC, though.
  5. Yeah, now we find out how committed ND is to Catholicism. But, seriously, Michigan and the B1G have a long, early history of banning ND. It's complicated. ND half-assed "joined" the ACC in the first place bc most of their alumni are on the east coast.
  6. Who's next for B1G expansion? Long story short, IF Notre Dame wants to or can get out of their ACC contract, they're #1 on the list. If not, we may see Cal, Stanford, UW, and UO in the B1G soon. So long, Pac. OSU and Wazzu to the MWC. AZ, ASU, CU, and Utah to the Big 12 (16).
  7. SDSU gives them games in SoCal, but another poster recommended just leasing SoFi in LA for big games. So you're right, neither will grow the Pac's revenue pie. Hopefully, whatever "alliance" the Big 12/Pac form will entail more than a "gentlemen's agreement". We've seen how that turned out.
  8. I'd love to be a fly on the wall for these meetings. I don't know how some teams are valued these days with "TV market size" and "cable subscribers" not being the main drivers any longer. What makes USC + UCLA worth $140MM+ annually to FOX and the B1G? For example, Rutgers never has and doesn't deliver the NYC metro to the B1G. Now they're getting an equal share of the biggest revenue pie? Does not compute.
  9. Pac-12 has nothing to sell if any more of their teams bail for the B1G. UW, UO, Cal, and Stanford are prospects, depending on who you read. Which 5 are the Pac targeting? I don't subscribe to IT. Honestly, I don't care if the Pac grabs 5 Big12 teams bc that means we definitely get out of our GOR and this contract sooner.
  10. Yep, that's why I'm hoping it happens stat. Big 12 needs to be proactive. Helluva first week on the job for the new commish, Brett Yormark. But, what will the new Big 16 pods/permanent rivals look like? Texas: Tech, TCU, BU, UH West: AZ, ASU, Utah, BYU Central: CU, KU, KSU, OSU East: Iowa St, WVU, CIN, UCF Use the same 3+6, 9-game league scheduling format and everybody plays home & homes every 4 years. Not a bad schedule.
  11. Agreed - that sucks We've got no history with the Arizonas. I'd rather play Tennessee, Bama, FL, and UGA twice every two years.
  12. ESPN has the ACC locked in at a discount rate until 2036. They've got no motivation to subsidize SEC expansion with ACC teams. With that said, my hope is the SEC remains at 16 teams for the short-term and we play 0u, aggy, and Arky every year regardless of what happens with more realignment. I don't care as long as we play those 3 annually. I like the idea of a 3+6 schedule where UT plays every SEC team twice in 4 years. Good match-ups.
  13. I don't know what to believe about future pay-outs to the B1G and SEC. $100MM per team sounds far-fetched, but assuming even $70MM per is accurate your assertion is still correct. Plus, now all universities offer online classes, so WTF?
  14. If WVU "is perfect" for the ACC, they would've gotten in along with BC, Pitt, Syracuse, and Louisville. But, they didn't.
