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

    Rumors about USC to the B1G hit Twitter a few months ago, but people thought it got poo-poo’d by contract agreements USC had made with the Pac 12.

    Big questions now are…
    - Will we see two major super conferences going forward? This seems likely

    - How do the rest of those teams shake out?

    - What do the streaming contracts look like for each super conference with big tech conglomerates?

    ND would want the B1G on the East Coast as well- so you'd be looking at UNC not Stanford would be my guess

    Listen here pal, nobody asked for ND’s input. You either take the check and play in the most prestigious conference in all the land, or get cast down with the sodomites.

    If the Pac 12 dies, Is there a bigger loser in conference realignment in the last 15 years than Colorado?

    These tv deals are getting so absurd I am not sure there’s many schools outside that the sec and b1g that could add tv value so I think the sec and b1g may be stuck at 16 and the other schools may just be fucked.

    No. Hence my fuck Texas forever stance. However, the CU admin hasn’t cared about football for a good 20 years, so it’s the outcome we deserve.

    Giving up ACC TV revenues is the sticking point?

    That seems fairly easy to overcome.
