Conference Realignment

Phil Knight is so desperate to get Oregon a new home, he's reportedly calling around himself to other conferences. The Big 12 wanted Oregon but the reports were that Oregon wasn't keen on the Big 12. Knight wants the Big Ten or SEC.

Oh I know. Just sharing info that’s been put out there. UVA feels more like a Big 10 school honestly

Someone on Twitter posted the entire contract and a couple people read it

Apparently if 8 of the schools want out at the same time they can dissolve the conference and get out without having to pay the exit fee and the conference losing the media rights. If we can go out with 7 others 4 to each of the new conferences we should be fine. Schools like Wake Forest are ****ting their pants right now

I figured the 8 school thing was fan speculation.  The reason you haven't seen any movement from the SEC or Clemson, Florida State, Miami or North Carolina ( the schools that the SEC would want and they would concur) is that the ACC has a $500 million exit fee per school.  No way the dollars add up for a school to finance that no matter how much they make if they jump to the SEC. 

That exit fee explains EVERYTHING about why the ACC was acting smug back when the SEC wanted them to go to a 12 team playoff.  That exit fee explains EVERYTHING on why you haven't heard peep from the ACC since USC and UCLA bounced to the Big10.   The ACC knows they got those schools tied up financially AND lawfully.  I read the first sentence of that contract and I see EXACTLY what that document is about.  The supremes up in D.C. can't get them schools out of that contract. They could dissolve the ACC yesterday and everyone of them schools would owe the ACC $500 million dollars.  They can't even show their games on TV without getting out of that contract.   The ACC got them, lol.   Welcome to the ACC and tier two level college football.

This is not to start a political discussion, but this is something to think about regarding ucla and usc and being in the big 10.. there will be as mentioned 22 states that they can't travel to since those states don't fall in line with how the state government of california thinks.. that isn't a small hurdle btw especially for the nonrevenue sports.

Logistics of all sports are something often forgotten. It's not just flying a football team from LA to New Jersey or wherever a handful of times a year. It's volleyball, baseball, softball and a ton of other sports that generate nothing of significance for you compared to the grand scheme. That's an expensive flight for UCLA baseball to fly to State College, PA plus a hotel.

SMU finds itself a popular target. ACC, Pac 12 and Big 12 have all had preliminary talks with SMU. ACC and Pac 12 no doubt want a Texas footprint. SMU would give either the #5 TV market in the country with Dallas.

Big 12 get its stabilizing TV deal. They extend for 6 years with ESPN/Fox. Deal is worth $2B overall. Each program will bank $50M a year from the deal. Pac 12 is working on a deal itself and that'll be one to watch since the Big 12 is looking to poach some schools out west. The Pac 12 is reportedly wooing Amazon in an attempt to be its Saturday pairing with Thursday NFL.

Getting amazon involved is brilliant.

Oregon and Washington have had formal meetings with the Big Ten in recent days. Big Ten plans to add 4 more Pac 12 schools and ND. 

If true, it'll be Oregon, Washington, Stanford and Cal. This ensures that ND's 3 biggest rivals (UMich, USC, and Stanford) are in the same conference. ND will have to join.
