There may actually be short term benefits for us. It’s not unrealistic that teams like Navy and Temple end up independent and help our potential independent scheduling challenges.
Agree, but if consolidation is happening among the power conferences, being on the outside looking in is not a good thing.

I want to see the old BE teams that deserted get hung out to dry...BC, Cuse and Pitt specifically.
World love to see B1G and SEC pick apart the ACC.

These 3 teams certainly deserve this. I remember the Big East raid very well. BCU did nothing all these years. BCU's biggest accomplishment to date is keeping Uconn out of the ACC. Cuse also voted for glorified community college over Uconn while working together with Pitt to stab old BE partners in the back. Pitt was one of the worst in that they were negotiating for the new Big East media deal while talking to the ACC at the same time. The fact Pitt hasn't been sued is still a mystery to this date.

These 3 teams deserve to be left out in the cold. It really would be karma.

I’m told that Lyons and Gee spent the last two days contacting Presidents and ADs from around the ACC to get a feel for what a vote would be for WVU to join and it appears there would be at least 10 yes votes

Don’t sleep on the effort by TX legislature to block the move to SEC. word from the other Texas schools is that it’s a race to see who can get ink on paper first. Legislation could really become a thorn for the Longhorns. Hearing OU is going with or without TX.

WVU is not one of the schools pushing for unequal revenue shares to keep TX and OU. That is coming from TT, KSU, TCU, and Baylor.

Texas is apparently agreeing to stay if they can receive the 1.5 revenue share (appx $56 million per year). Vote would have to be unanimous. OU I’m not sure about. TX afraid their move to SEC may get politically blocked. Also don’t want to have to forfeit LHN

Fox network getting involved now. Possibly opening up the pocketbook. I don’t know for sure-only that there have been a lot of talks to today with television execs between many of the presidents.

This is so much crap. 1.5 shares still doesn't get close to matching SEC revenue.

USC and UCLA have been vocal about lack of revenue in the PAC12 vs other P5 conferences like B1G and the SEC. There were rumors USC exploring indy option vs. staying in the PAC-12.

Frankly, I just don't see media companies ponying up huge money to play teams like Oregon State and Washington State. USC and UCLA leaving together to B1G would definitely solve their revenue concerns although I can't imagine both being in the B1G without Cal and Stanford. If I am B1G, I go get USC, UCLA, Stanford, Washington, Colorado, and Oregon. The remaining PAC-12 6 teams can merge with 8x B12 leftovers while adding 2 more to form an almost P5 conference.

This all needs to happen before the next P12 and B1G media contract.
