    "Notre Dame is in the midst of a 10-year television contract with NBA signed in 2016 that runs through 2025"

    The best overall NCAA athletic program in the country for the past 20-30 years is Stanford. Looks like the B10 is only concerned about football with this realignment. Oh well….it is what it is (whatever that means). Go Dawgs!!!

    Can’t wait for that Rutgers USC game

    The Pac-10 is looking forward to pioneering the future of college athletics...😆

    Notre Dame's future is as interesting as it gets now. And the rest of the Pac-10. Will the Pac 10 and Big 12 teams do something? WTH is going on with all of this? I mean USC and UCLA joining a league across the country? This may backfire and not work out down the road. I do not like what USC and UCLA did. And they both **** on the field. Cant win their own conferences and they are the largest markets by far. They will water the Big 10 down even further.

    Notre Dame what you gonna do?!! Stand pat? Join the Big 10 now that they just scored your rival USC and added bucks to the deal? Join the ACC so that you and Clemson can dominate it?

    Yeah the Big 10 got the largest TV markets but the main thing is, is how many people are actually watching the games in those markets...let's just say, its not the same as in the South baby! NFL is king up north in Big 10 country, as we all know.

    May I suggest Big 16? How about Big 10 +6?

    First, they killed NASCAR.

    Then they got ahold of MLB.

    Now, they're doing they're level-best to sour the top tier of college football.

    I hate it.

    With USC joining the Ohio St conference, you can count on a 12-team playoff sooner than later.

    To borrow from a recent national holiday, maybe we should now call the Big 10 the June 10th.

    I smell a lot more pay to see games in the future.

    The B1G now has the first and second largest TV markets. There is very little interest in college football in either. My guess is there’s more interest per capita in Alabama and Louisiana than New York an Los Angeles by a factor of at least 10. I doubt the Neilson ratings will blow up with USC vs. Ohio State or UCLA vs. Michigan much less the left coast schools vs. the likes of Rutgers and Minnesota. Television execs are right there with the NCAA brain trust when it come to intelligence!

    And, what’s going to happen to Rutgers budget for example when they have to fly their women’s gymnastics team to Los Angeles for a meet?

    Once again, the B1G is trying to play catch up vs. the SEC and once again they lose!

    LOL...Which one of those Teams or games would you or anybody else be willing to pay-to-see? That's what the television contracts are for.

    To a comment made by @dogs_n_braves..let's define "THEY".

    "THEY"==="TV $$$$". That's who's driving this bus.

    The "B10/P12/ACC Alliance" was declared DOA yesterday. LOL. The ACC and PAC12 Commissioners realize now, that they've been played, by voting down the 12 team playoff with a guaranteed participant. Good luck getting that, now. The B10 Commissioner was just buying time to put together his own deal.

    The ACC & PAC12 (-2) are currently playing a game of table tennis with what's left of their brains, at a neutral location. LMAO

    What's sad is that USC and UCLA will now have to fly their Women's Softball teams all the way to NJ for a weekend tournament, and vice versa. So much for the health and welfare of our student-athletes. SMH

    Where the hell are our Legislators....oh yeah, running a Jan 6 scam hearing. BS. Why do we pay these people to represent us. Their only interested in Preserving their Power and increasing their bank accounts...kinda like these Football Conferences. It's demented and depraved.
