    Like these money-first cocksuckers give a shit about CFB.

    ADs and commissioners are hiring these fuckers to justify their decisions, who will then hire them to seven figure deals.

    Clearly Goose thinks we have terrible lawyers that agreed to a deal where the Big 12 can just kick us to the curb.

    I’m still a bit miffed that Rutgers to the B1G is valued highly for ad reasons by the networks because it carries New York City. Seems someone in this chain is wasting advertising money that isn’t mine.

    I apologize to the Rutgers fans amongst us, but I’d like to see the viewers for Rutgers-Maryland versus the Egg Bowl.

    Sure. This is about advertising. There are far more people in NYC and Maryland, than there are in Mississippi.

    But the Egg Bowl slaps and is a good product.

    I think you're absolutely right and I think Notre Dame is playing their hand well but they may be overplaying it.

    They have a lot to offer for all the reasons listed ad nauseam but I think if they have unreasonable demands as a condition to entry and you called their bluff, they'd fold. I have a very hard time believing they want to end up in the SEC, it's just not really a fit from many angles.

    The ACC paying less than the Big 12 is 100% on ACC incompetence rather than market value. Big 12 post Texas OU leaving has 0 schools worth as much as Clemson, UNC, FSU or Miami.

    Reading it I would assume the delay from ND is figuring out how their basketball tv rights would work. That probably won't be super cheap but worth it. Or is ND doing just football with B1G on the table? Full football money buyout is not going to be under $2-300 million. Insane to me that some of the ACC schools signed it.
