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

    I’m just shocked it was the two PNW teams in the middle of nowhere WA/OR who play in 35k seat stadiums that are getting left out and not the Great Plains schools with borderline insane fanbases like everyone thought

    I don't agree with the premise that any school the B1G adds needs to be worth minimum of $70-80M on its own in the next TV deals. Bringing USC and UCLA in and then letting them die in isolation as the only schools west of Nebraska defeats the purpose. If bringing Oregon and Washington (and maybe Colorado?) balances things out and helps the LA schools, that's more important than anything else the league can do outside of adding ND. That's the long term $$ play, and the short term $$ at this point is already stupid enough where it shouldn't matter that much.

    Everyone would be so much happier if we just went back to the alignment prior to 92, with a Big East formed out of all the independent teams(FSU, Penn State, Louisville, South Carolina, Miami, West Virginia, Va Tech, Notre Dame, Cincinnatti, Pittsburgh)

    This is purely about money. I’m not trying to draw ire here, if they’re deciding not to add Oregon because they’d only bring in 60 million and the average school is getting 100… it’s only a matter of time before they decide to drop out the schools bringing in way less than 60 million.

    No one is going to argue that Rutgers gets the type of penetration in their local that PSU, OSU, UM, UW or any of the other premiere programs in the big ten. But the penetration we do get is in the biggest media market in the country. Even when normal bad (admittedly 2015 - 2019 were historically bad) still amounts to as many if not more eye balls than a number of other big ten teams (would def exclude Nebraska as they basically own their entire state and then some thanks to some incredible past success and pretty much nothing else to do there once the corn is harvested).

    I love that all those bashing the big ten’s addition of RU think they're smarter than Jim Delaney. If not for RU’s addition, and the NY carriage fees that came with it, the supposed $60M threshold to get in wouldn’t be as high.

    Pretty sure RU, Maryland and USC/UCLA are the only media markets with net positive population growth.

    They have to justify their inclusion rather than just admitting they got lucky.

    Pretending the B1G wouldn't have landed large piles of cash without them is some incredible fantasy.
