Better strap up. Realignment could be getting very serious very quickly.

    Oh thank God. As Rutgers fan, I’ve grown too accustomed to the good life to go back to associating with the poors

    Just because they won that game (which I do remember!) doesn’t mean they were a national brand. I specifically remembering as a young thinking where is Alabama and how is this a thing?

    Clearly you’re old money. We as new as new money gets. After scrapping with schools like USF and Connecticut over a dead rat carcass in the defunct big east/AAC, we more than happy to eat the hamburger the B1G serves us and shut up about it. Enjoy your steak tho.

    That was a penalty for the entire conference because it came with a TV ban. Even schools not on probation couldn’t be televised when they played schools who were.

    Hahaha. You must have me confused with the Ags. I am not defending Bama. Your whole post was laughable. Thirty years ago Miami, Nebraska, FSU, Penn St, OU among others were all national brands along with ND. College gameday had been airing for years so there was plenty of national coverage for all these teams.

    There’s not really a move in the next few years that will do anything. That said, as a fan I really don’t care too much if our athletic department’s conference is first or second in per school revenue. Of course, it’s easy to say that when my school is good regardless, so I do sympathize with your plight a bit.

    or when Ron Prince called a WR pass and a half back pass on back to back plays to score a touchdown and ultimately ruin their chances at a title

    or when he beat them again the following year in Austin by scoring two non offensive touchdowns

    R1 doesn’t really mean shit seeing as all 14 SEC schools are R1.

    Hopefully they keep Bama at Texas on the schedule for next year. My wife had already made a list of 3-4 houses that we were looking at renting for that one.

    I think there’s some nuance to how the revenue sharing worked and was implemented, and when/how it was changed. The article linked has more info than the Texas fan tweet, but it’s from the Big12 site.



    sorry if this has already been addressed.
