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

    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.

    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.

    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

    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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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

    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.
