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

    B1G waiting for those schools to get desperate enough to take a half share in tv rights imo.

    I’m partially joking, but in all seriousness, why give any of the remaining schools a full share? They have zero leverage.

    Yeah maybe....but if PAC is crumbling you do want to take pick of the litter before SEC does. Now that I'm saying that I don't think Stanford with their academic standing would in a million years rather go SEC than B1G so their situation is unique but Oregon....SEC will want them for sure and vice versa.

    lol so after decades of the sanctity of the Rose Bowl holding back efforts at a playoff, the Big Ten knifes the Pac 10, likely ushering in future changes that will end the FBS era

    ***I will delete this post if the Big Ten invites Duke to join***

    It seems certain that negotiations now will extend into August and may be completed after Labor Day. Originally, the Big Ten had been planning to wrap up its rights negotiations at some point in July. The Big Ten was expected to be the first college conference to eclipse $1 billion in media-rights fees annually -- and that was before USC and UCLA said they would join. The Big Ten presidents officially voted to add the two schools tonight.

    Fox Sports already had reached a deal to carry at least half of the conference’s package, and CBS was viewed as a front-runner to take at least a package of Saturday football games in the 3:30pm ET window. That left Amazon, ESPN and NBC competing for a third package. As late as this morning, Apple and Warner Bros. Discovery were not viewed as credible bidders. That could all change.
