Conference Realignment

FSU and Clemson publicly expressed displeasure with the ACC. Saying the conference has to change something cause their being left in the dust by other conferences. I wouldn't expect a move soon, FSU's AD was asked what the cost would be to leave the ACC and school attorneys responded by saying about $120M.

  • Texas: Oklahoma, Texas A&M, Arkansas

Brian Kelly got his chance to respond today. He said he wants the best teams on his schedule yearly. Kelly said he came to the SEC to play the best and he wants the best the SEC has to offer every year. 

Amazing one coach who has won a ton whines while another says bring it on.  Love it coach kelly.

Pac 12 commissioner is visiting SMU tomorrow. Pac 12 is eyeing SMU and San Diego State as targets for expansion. 

I like this. Personally I think SMU would be highly competitive in both football and M basketball year one if they join. That’s a great move it it happens.

Clemson better shut up. Like for real shut up. They’ve played a baby-bottom soft football schedule for most of a decade. They’re really good. But they owe their trips to the playoffs on not getting beat up for 9-10 games a year like Big10, SEC, or Big12 teams have done. Are they more concerned with media futures?

Yes, they're both concerned the revenue the ACC provides isn't enough to keep up with the SEC and Big Ten. Clemson for example got $38M last year. Big Ten and SEC schools got $50M. ND eats up a lot of ACC money because of their part time deal. For its limited participation in football they still got $34M last year.

Notre Dame has always been very media savvy. And they have a fan up above. As much as a don’t cheer for ND I totally respect how they’ve operated with the media. Decades ahead of anyone.

According to a report, Colorado is ready to rejoin the Big 12. The Pac 12 is struggling to lock in a media deal and Colorado is reportedly ready to get out in front of anyone else leaving. They aren't taking off yet but they're reportedly in the early stages of the process.

Colorado should have never left the Big 12. That one never made any sense.

It was the same reason they're trying to go now. Officials at Colorado were certain the Big 12 was going to die when it became clear Nebraska was leaving. So they moved quickly to get in front of the other schools. Back then the rumor was the Pac 12 was the target of Texas and OU so Colorado jumped out of fear.

The part about all this conference realignment that has fascinated me over the last 15 or so years is Boise State had a clear case to be accepted into a legit conference based on their play on the field but they couldn't never get that invite because nobody cares about the Idaho/Montana TV market so they've been left out in the cold through all this. Now their play on the field has declined and now they're pretty suck in the Mountain West conference.

Who were they supposed to be paying 2 to 5 million per year?

UCLA is paying Cal, who will use the money to improve mental support, nutrition and academic support for its own athletes. I think it actually ended up getting an increased ceiling to $10M. So between $2-10M a year of UCLA's Big Ten money will go to Cal.

Why are they being forced to do that?

I don't like it. I want Auburn against Florida every year like the old days.
