So presumably here, at least in the near future, Cal, Stanford, Washington State and Oregon State would go to the Mountain West? Score one for the mid majors I guess.
America has a lovefest with the wrong sport IMO. But then again, I attended a basketball only school and I've never been a college football fan.The Big Ten and SEC payouts are expect to increase to about $100 million per school by 2029.
My daughter is going to work at MSU in the athletic department this fall. Hoping Daddio gets some perks.Their fan bases deliver and their alums invest and frankly, the SEC and Big10 usually put out a high quality product week in and week out.
Meanwhile back on Broad St, we have folks whining about the dollars spent acquiring a parcel of land for the Sports Village valued at $21MM, for $16MM, of which $14.5MM came in a grant from the state.
Different worlds, different mindsets and different outcomes.
Anytime you watch an SEC football game on TV, you are watching a game with many future pros.I know one person won't change much, but I'm going to avoid watching any "Big" games on television. I would also love to see the 300 non "Bigs" refuse to play them (or insist they pay a equitable share of those millions they're getting.)
I'm afraid I have to disagree. Assuming that Fordham, St. Joe's, and LaSalle go elsewhere, combining the conferences can help improve the quality of our schedules. That may be the most important thing when getting an enlarged bid with two super conferences.Big east has zero need for the vast majority of the a10
Assuming we make the Philly schools and Fordham disappear, what on earth would they want mason, Duquesne, GW or UMass for?I'm afraid I have to disagree.

A RI loss would really hurt but Providence probably protects us from that occurring.
11 is the right number though for a basketball only conference, gives a full rank, twenty game schedule—every one plays everyone H&H.Providence is to URI as Georgetown is to VCU...Friars and Hoyas won’t let it happen. Xavier doesn’t want Dayton, but 12 is a nice round number and the obvious top candidate is Dayton
Besides the high quality bball? They have a legit Arena that is packed on the regular AND is a major event locale every year for The Big Dance’s start.
It is what it is...and, IMO, VCU to the Big East will always be a pipe dream.
