More realignment talk at Mountain West Connection

5

The folks over at MWConnection have some chatter about possible future realignment of the Big 12 - B12 is potentially after Boise State, and depending on how other dominos fall could also be after TCU, WVU and Louisville in an attempt to get back to 10 or 12. If TCU, WVU and UL all got poached by the B12, that would effectively kill the Big East as a football conference unless they want to consume what's left of CUSA. Should get the Orange to the ACC sooner, no idea how it would impact the ACC to 16 teams with UConn and/or Rutgers.

FSU and MD played exit fee whack-a-mole...

Interesting tidbit on the main page. Supposedly the ACC wanted to jack the exit fee to $34 mil and FSU and Maryland got it down to $20 mil. FSU has been a rumored SEC target and Maryland a rumored B1G target.

Uh-oh WVU

MIzzou reportedly has an invite to the SEC. With the news that the ACC has ixnayed the Mountainers it looks like, unfortunately, that they're going to shut out of the race to 14.

And the Big East continues to unravel

So it appears the Ollie Luck isn't wasting any time hitting the eject button. Your move, Texas, Oklahoma and Larry Scott

Oh Rutgers, you so funny. Seriously, reading this On The Banks post I all I could think is "damn presumptuous to assume that you'll have the option to choose" where the reality is you better hope someone wants you. Four years of good football doesn't make you the be all end all. If Rutgers was such hot shit they'd already have a new home and not be wondering about where that home will be.

Latest expansion rumor - Pitt/Syracuse to ACC?

Supposedly Pitt and Syracuse are in talks with the ACC about leaving the Big East. Thamel's source seems like it's solid since it generated a big fact "No Comment" from all sides instead of an outright denials.

Not sure who amongst the fellow Nuneserati pays attentions to the comings and goings at Team Speed Kills, but those fine folks have a fresh article up about the imminent implosion of the Big 12. Seems that OU & OSU are dead set on heading to the Pac 12 and Texas is flirting with the ACC. It's going to get interesting...

I couldn't believe the final score when I first saw it. Took a break from homework, tuned in for the start of the second half and the 'cats were up fifteen or so. I can't believe how the wheels have fallen off the Villanova bus this year. I'm all for the schadenfreude, but c'mon Jay, you're crushing the Big East's rep here.

I don’t understand how one person can be dictator over your son’s future."

So says Tom Savage's father in the CBS CFB blog entry, referring to Greg Schiano's adding Miami, Florida, Florida State and Michigan to the list of schools that Savage won't be allowed to transfer to if Schiano has his way. That ticking sound is the Rutgers football program getting ready to implode. Schadenfreude - it's not just for breakfast anymore!
