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

    Rumors about NBC making a push hit around the same time. If they keep ND on the renewal, then have ND playing USC, MSU, Purdue, Michigan, etc, that’s a lot of value for NBC picking up the B1G.

    Fox leads, but has B1G Noon. CBS at 3:30. NBC prime time.

    If I remember correctly Nebraska was brought in with the understanding they would attain aau but have not, and one of the major sticking points with KU to the B1G was we were tied at the hip to KSU who did not have accreditation as well thanks to the Kansas Board of Regents.

    Nebraska was actually an AAU member when they joined. If I’m remembering correctly, the reason their accreditation was removed was because the research was being done at the campus in Omaha rather than at the main campus in Lincoln. They are currently in the process of regaining it.

    I actually heard it’s because the B1G was only interested in lame as fuck schools which is why they took NU and were interested in KU but unfortunately we were far too cool for the B1G

    I believe you are 100% correct. Not everyone had the luxury of having the Octagon of Doom and Bill Snyder Stadium to bring to the table. They cant have the old guard of the B1G thoroughly embarrassed for having dumb places to play like the Big House and the Horseshoe.

    The long-term prospects of the AAC outlasting the ACC seem to increase hourly so maybe they should rethink that.

    Fox told ND what the money looks like- they are waiting on ND to respond. If ND comes on board the deal is much bigger for the B1G which would allow them to take on more schools

    To be fair to the PAC they are (were?) being run much better now but they waited way too long to dump their idiot commissioner.

    Really have to think it'll be Oregon and Washington. Strong brands and add further western presence. Both are AAU members.
