June/July announcement of FSU/Clemson joining the Big-12 and leaving the ACC.
This comes from Brian Ethridge who is Baylor's mod on the 247 network, he also says adding those 2+ a conference champ game would net each school 30 million per year.
FSU also just announced today there athletic department is facing a 2.4 million dollar shortfall.
wow that's crazy good if true.
How tied in is this guy? Is he batting above the Chip Brown Mendoza line?
If true, and this is a HUGE if, I am so glad we didn't immediately settle for BYU/Louisville/Cincinnati/etc.
And uh... so, Notre Dame, how do yearly games in Texas and Florida sound?
It seems like i remember him having some pretty good sources before on realignment. But I suffer from CRS so I may be wrong.
Any news on a new Big 12 Commish?
No read what he says about Scott Drew!

Big12 is probably the worst major conference academically. I don't see ND wanting any part of that.
Does that even really matter though? Its not like being in the Big XII will change their studious reputation.
I would like this.
other than the Big Ten's CIC, what does academic prowess or lack thereof of fellow conference members matter? Prestige? I am not being snarky, just curious why it would affect ND's decision.
Maybe currently. But if FSU and Clemson come over, the ACC is seemingly up for grabs. With schools like Georgia Tech, Virginia Tech, and Pittsburgh there for the taking, there are some pretty interesting possibilities for a 16 team conference that make sense academically, geographically, and athletically.
Would be frickin awesome
This would be awesome, but I see no reason why we wouldn't go ahead and go to 14 with Louisville and Miami, or even 16 if possible.
I think the next commish is leading WVU down here to the Big 12 currently.
And as far as i know, the CIC is one of the major reasons nd isnt going big 10
Money is the major reason in all of the conference realignments. ND most of all in that regard.
It is all hot air until WildBill confirms.
Wow, that would be nice. I wonder how they would divide up the divisions IF this is true. Id rather have VT instead of Clemson, but oh well.
There is nothing more dangerous in this world than a man with nothing to lose.
East: FSU, Clemson, West Virginia, Iowa State, Kansas, Kansas State
West: Texas, Oklahoma, Baylor, Oklahoma State, Texas Tech, TCUO

Doubtful the two find that arrangement amenable. Im sure they'd demand texas and/or ou in their division. Either east west with ou osu isu fsu clem wvu in east or n-s with tx schools fsu and clem in south. Perhaps a permanent cross division rival is in order to keep tx ou game?
Looks good, but Im not so sure I like Clemson very much. Good in name, but hasnt been a good team i a long time. Long long time. VT would be much a much better get. Also, in that setup, the Kansas schools would be pissed at the travel cost they would have to shell out every year.

The only thing that would be better than FSU and Clemson joining would be FSU and Notre Dame. That would be a dream conference from a television set point-of-view.
Then maybe we'd be able to get the LHN.
Dont worry papa I am sure a drug company is developing a pill to battle CRS...
Adding those two won't get the Big 12 to $30 million. I hope I'm wrong but $30 million would outpace the new projected SEC contract which I don't think would happen.
9 and 4 at Texas sucks!

There is no "new SEC" contract. They have a 15 year deal with look-in provisons. If the SEC were to negotiate a new contract today, they would command more money than the Big 12. They aren't. Their time will come in 2024.
