That would end the Big XII as a threat.

Then bring in UConn in the Atlantic, Louisville and Cincinnati in the Coastal. That would result in 16 all sports plus Notre Dame and Texas. Basketball would see everyone play everyone once and their "rival" twice.

The SEC and Pac fight over Oklahoma and Oklahoma State. The rest of the Big XII adds the best of what's left of the BE or maybe some MWC schools.

A valid option in 13 years.

Why is it assumed that GOR are one way deals?

I see people claim a lot that GOR are giving away rights for x number of years.

I'm sure there is a payment. The rights are given for x amount of money for x years I think. So changing conferences wouldn't net them any less money. They just gave broadcasting rights up...not payment for those rights.

So, the ACC wouldn't see any benefit to our TV contract for adding Texas for 13 years. Might as well wait.

That is pretty much what we are doing w/ ND. We get nothing on their side of the football agreement.

Maybe Notre Dame may actually play us in football? A game at PBS would sell out easily (unfortunately may be 35-40% Irish fans).

WhyTF would Texas leave for the ACC? Ridiculously stupid imo.
