  • If you are seeing a McAfee pop up about malware, switch to the AO style.

    To do so, go to the bottom left of any screen, click the style currently selected (boneyard or dark), then click AO. If you still have the problem after switching, send me a screen capture.

    If you are not a registered user, you may have to switch style each time you visit until the issue is resolved, or register a free account. Edit: I'm told this Chrome Extention in helps to prevent pop ups:

True. The optics don’t look great, but ESPN has done nothing wrong unless it can be proven. I find it hard to believe they were not disciplined enough to stay within their right to commence negotiations about matters outside the term of the contract in effect. Their lawyers are too good to let that happen.

The legal team of the Walt Disney Company, UT and OU is on one side.

The legal team of TCU and Kansas State is on the other.

I know which one I think has better lawyers.

Also, shoutout to John Swofford for that absolute joke of a TV deal he walked out the door into retirement signing, an amazing albatross around the ACC's neck. Much obliged!

This is the problem with the ACC. It’s a great deal for schools like Wake Forest, Pitt, Syracuse, BC, Duke, Louisville,… and a terrible deal for Clemson, FSU, UNC, UVA,… That is the underlying problem with the conference.

Thanks for the refresher. Conjecture is not proof.
Also, any definition that includes the word to be defined as a part of it (see item 5) is problematic…

Lol, he had a front row seat to see what happens to conferences that turn down an ESPN deal. Nobody wants to be “Big Easted”.

I don’t know, Disney’s lawyers seem a bit goofy to me.

What Swofford did was that he left the lights on when he left, unlike the BE and maybe the Big 12....it is a crappy deal...but the SEC and B1G won't be poaching. It may well be the ACC that adds..maybe some combo of WVU, Cincinnati, UCF...etx

They are all going to be top shelf lawyers. They are going to be burning some serious dollars.
