    Yeah there is no more pac conference. There’s no world or combination of teams that will be able to compete with the sec and big 10 (I hope they still call it that) in terms of money. They’ll gobble up the tabs they want and everyone else Is left behind

    Only way this makes sense if they expand to like 18 teams and do a B1G West of like USC, UCLA, Oregon, UW, Utah, Oklahoma, Nebraska, Minnesota, and Iowa and put the others in the East or something

    No NFL team would sign up for 4 cross country trips in 8 weeks, let alone a college team

    If the B1G keeps a semblance of their research institution requirement, those schools aren't welcome.

    USC to the B1G was rumored a few months back, but was supposedly squashed due to contractual reasons. Sounds like the lawyers figured it out.

    Sedrick Irvin commits to Stanford

    Excited for the thanksgiving 2026 game where he rushes for 175 yards and they have two 6'6 TEs hauling in miracle grabs and we're wondering how this can be happening

    Also a really interesting ticket activation alongside the whole Irish Wear Green thing

    New type of season ticket for $500 each called the Shamrock Pass where you get two side-by-side tickets to every home game but the locations may differ from game to game

    Still so weird to remember scalping tix vs Arizona State during the Davie era and only being able to get in the stadium for $200 or more.

    Now they’re giving away season tickets for $500 a pop. Wild how that market has shifted so drastically.

    If we can keep our TV contract (a big if, right?) and our B1G West conference would be like USC, UCLA, Northwestern, Nebraska, Iowa, a couple more newbies (Oklahoma? Stanford? Cal? Oregon?), and we get to play UM and/or MSU most years ... I think its time to go B1G

    As part of some sort of NIL fund, I’d like to propose that Marcus reads our in-game posting on video and sends it back to us.

    I’ll donate $100 per post. $200 for IHHH specific posts

    honestly BC already feels like a big10 school to me, think they would have to find 1 other school as well for it to make sense though

    I'm glad Dante didn't commit to Oregon on his visit because if this throws the Pac 12 into turmoil, hard to see him committing there any time soon.

    as much as I like to make fun of this situation and Dante moore for being a pussy ass bitch(jk) I would also welcome him with open arms. Moore 23 and carr 24 is the absolute best case scenario and always has been.
