its all about TV money..
SEC wants UNC but they want the B1G (academics)... so the SEC will go after NC st to get the NC TV market
Georgia will block GT to the SEC so there is no chance of that happening... B1G wants the ATL market... however I think that UVA comes with UNC if they do decided to come (GT will be the next round). I think conferences will go to at least 18 and maybe 20
Supporting News is now reporting that UNC has an offer on the table.
No way they go over 16. IMO
If they go to 20, then we'll see 4 pods of 5 teams. Pods rotate and it sets up well for 9 conf games each year. You can play each school in 3 seasons if desired. Fourteen is clunky to work with. Football is driving this so basketball is not considered as much. 20 schools has more influence too.
I miss the Big 8, PAC 10, SWC days.
Just saw this posted from a Purdue friend of mine.
This conference expansion crap needs to be stopped.
Hasn't UNC had a offer for what seems like a year now?
Goal in life is to make the Huskers Illustrated Hall Of Fame
if they do home and home then you would play a team from a different div every 6 years. right?
Yes, that would be true if they followed the Big 12 scheduling model. It was fun playing OU or UT back to back years. Playing back to back years does add some sizzle with the revenge factor, but you could go quite some time without playing a conference opponent.
What I'd like to see is a format where you play everyone in a 3 year cycle and flip home/away the next 3 years so you would play everyone home & home during the 6 years.
Smaller conferences help create rivalries because of the frequency of play. The pods would be the best way to do that IMO and still play conference members on a regular basis. Rotate the pod pairings annually and the ones with best records face off in the CCG. Four pods that don't rotate and selecting two best records would not be the way I determine who my CCG participants are.
These are different times we live in.
dont sound too bad, i like it
