    Big 12 Realignment thread, 2021 version

    Carey Murdoch reported it but there are a LOT of rumors flying around out there so who knows. But remember this is all about football and we are a much bigger football prize than any free agent school other than ND.

    Starting to sound like we might get an ACC invite over WVU and even KU might get one over WVU if ND does not join. ND might stay independent or go to the Big 10.

    No the ACC is somehow locked into a tv deal that goes through 2036.

    Umm that is basically what is happening, the SEC is merging with the remaining members of the Big 12 that they feel worth merging with. I mean they will have Mizzou, ATM, OU and UT and the rest will be left to the wind...

    We cannot do this thanks to their Grant of Rights agreements. Well that and the fact that we have NOTHING to offer those teams as an incentive to join us. If OU and UT go through with this (and all indications are they will) then the Big 12 is either dead as the remaining members scramble for...

    BYU comes with a lot of problems like them not allowing sporting events on Sunday and them already having their own TV network was a big problem.

    But you are forgetting the money part. If we do not get a payout at the level of a power 5 then all those sports would lose a HUGE chunk of their operating money. It would likely end up crippling our athletic department a lot.

    Except that that new PAC 12 commissioner has already chimed in with comments that could be interpreted as meaning he is interested in expansion via Big 12 teams left after OU/UT leave... Don't worry you guys are likely ACC bound...

    If all this happens then I agree as I don't see a realistic better option for us.

    Content is eyeballs, so we are essentially saying the same thing. Previously it was not about eyeballs as it was about the number of cable users in the schools footprint. That is why Rutgers got in the Big 10.

    It is no longer so much about the TV sets you bring in since cable cutting has become such a big issue. Now it is more about the content you bring and in that area at least we have a lot of good content with most of our athletic teams. Not sure it is enough to move the needle though.

    The silver lining is almost all of the top players they are pulling in are only on the offensive side. We at least seem to be pulling a lot of top players on both sides of the ball.
