Better strap on. Realignment could be getting very sensual very quickly.

    If this doesn’t end up with Oregon and Miami as division rivals I’m going to be disappointed.

    This will definitely be the biggest test of ND’s “fuck the B1G forever” stance, but I guess that started to soften with hockey.

    Pretty easy to see where this all leads.

    The SEC/B1G will become the only two major power conferences, they’ll eventually unify into a combined league, and CFB will officially be a minor league version of the NFL.

    This was my reaction too. Was always told the CA schools were a package deal. If only two were going to stick together I would have thought it would be UCLA and Cal, since they are part of the same university system, as far as I’m aware.

    on the bright side, Looking forward to UCLA v RU games in LA with you bruv

    the only school that would move the needle for the sec that isn’t in the B1G is notre dame

    I know they’re name schools but every school you add has to pay for itself

    Miami has no fans and is broke, Florida state adds nothing when you have Florida, and the sec already has South Carolina and that will cover both Carolina states

    I don’t see the sec expanding based off this move

    the LA schools are tied at the hip. It helps that we are good in our respective sports so it’s not like one is carrying the other in both. UCLA sighing with Jordan imo also helps to show we bring something to the table.

    Charlotte (24), Raleigh-Durham (27), Greenville-Spartanburg-Asheville-Anderson (36), and Greensboro-High Point- Winston-Salem (46) would all be considered in the conference footprint and therefore would be able to charge at a higher rate
