To be fair, Auburn's head coach probably believes the entire planet is flat.
It’s not a coincidence. Successful sports programs cause increases in applications. We’re playing a lot more in those areas and applications are up.
It's because ohio state has been dominating the national conversation since 2012 along with bama and clemson. It's the CFP appearances and the wins. The fact that rutgers is in the b1g means jack shit. I'd also wager that college applications surging nationally is probably a bigger factor than beating maryland by 50 points a year.
Good point but anyone that’s lived in both knows Utah/Colorado winters are nothing like upper Midwest winters.
As long as we’re in mlb fuck the poors and the plebs. They can eat cake.
fuck Thad Busby
David Hale and Andrea Adelson are doing a live stream on twitter discussing what the ACC will potentially do. They mentioned the possibility of Oregon, Standford, Cal and Washington joining to be a coast-to-coast league, but that is a pipe dream at this point.
Sign me up for FSU visiting Stanford
Most logical move for them, and if they can pull off ND they will go hard for Stanford
and now we test the Duncan Principle
We played baseball out there like 20 years ago and our whole team almost died.
Seriously the bus driver died of a heart attack on the highway.
Right, but in recent years neither program has done much, and they're going to a pretty weak wbb conference. Thus the needle remains dorment. hth
got damn I forgot all about that crazy shit
We'll take care of raising their WBB stature.
it’s about brands now not markets, prestige, or number of teams
only UNC and ND have appeal to the B1G due to them having appeal to the Networks
no one east of the Mountains cares about any of these schools in the PAC but USC/UCLA
I think it’s why Chip has a job for life.
Not until the ACC deal blows up. Cheaper to pick up the San Francisco market and a historical rival for ND, UCLA and USC. It also gives the California schools some closer home games in all sports.
Hope so. ND has needed to go to the B1G for a long time.
No. We haven't needed to until now. But yes, now it's needed. That's where the sport is going.
I want it on the record that I find user Cornfed Buffalo to be a Saint and I will find room for him in the B1G if he murders @buff roughneck first. I won’t let him twist in the wind.
We're gonna make you beg Roy Walley
Got our money invested in Orange Juice futures. We know the money will be flowing like water, so why rush?
While I appreciate the kind words, CU needs to use this opportunity to admit that they have no desire to invest in what it would take to be competitive again.
We are firmly #TEAMMWC but will also take calls from the Big Sky.
You know damned well that's not the approach the league's taking.
Only for the moment. We anticipate an opening in 2036.
What am I missing?
Fucking Texas wouldn't pay the GOR cost to leave even a year early for the SEC but you think a bunch of broke ACC schools are going to pay huge 9 figure sums to leave?
well the choices are
1. get enough people to leave so that the conference disbands and you dont have to pay the GOR
2. find the money
3. leave anyway and force the ACC into a huge court battle over the GOR
4. become permanently relegated to never contending for a title or significant bowl again.
so fsu miami and clemson will be trying literally everything in their power to make 1,2 or 3 a reality.
How many have to remain in the league for it stay a going concern? I'd assume like 4-6 or so?
think 8 is the magic number to trigger dissolution and escape the GOR.
Yep you have it. Acc teams are just gonna let this happen and do nothing.
If we could shorten commercial breaks out of this deal, that’d be cool.
Was probably thumbing through a real estate catalogue or something
I'd imagine Texas would've ponied up or pursued any other avenue they could if they were essentially facing relegation like ACC programs now are, pretty big difference in the sense of urgency between these two situations
You look like the piss boy.
congratulations UNLV and boise
Just another example of cougars and beaver making people do stupid things
It would be interesting to see who they pursue. The door was always closed to BYU (religion) and Boise State/other MWC members (academics). But I'd imagine they will have to lower their standards facing an existential crisis.
I wonder if they call up BYU and how short that conversation is.
Then good luck getting relegated to the second level of football
BYU is joining the Big12
Thank you I definitely did not realize that.
Like realignments have never been hijacked before. It's been a very successful run for TCU, Boise State, and San Diego State as Big East members.
pretty much what they’ve been doing for a decade of realignment
They aren't going anywhere without us!
