Interesting reading now that we have the benefit of 20-20 hindsight.

This move is about TV revenue. I think the master plan is to eventually get to 16 once the SEC makes that move.

Is there a tracker that shows the 2013 conferences? Would love to eventually see an 8 team playoff with the winners of mega conferences then a few at large teams that are indies or from smaller conferences. That would take 3-4 weeks to pull off.

How do the Big 10 divisions / rivalry games shake down with the additions of Maryland and Rutgers?

The divisions are not currently geographically aligned, so unless a game vs PSU every season is part of both deals (former annual games from when PSU was independent) I bet they will put each one in a division, make them each other's annual rivalry game and forget it.

That would make sense for now, but I anticipate 2 more schools being added before this all settles.

ESPN is reporting that both Rutgers and Maryland will join the leaders division with Penn State and Illinois will be moving to the Legends.

So basically OSU or Wisconsin will be one half of the conference championship every season. Those are extremely unbalanced divisions.

Each division currently has 6 teams. Moving Penn State and Illinois to the other division would mean it would be 8 and 6 after adding Rutgers and Maryland. Penn State is staying and will play Rutgers/Maryland every season.

How quickly does the ACC go after UConn?

The ACC is leaning heavily toward adding a 14th team to replace Maryland and has two favorites for the spot -- UConn and Louisville -- according to a source with knowledge of the situation.

The ACC is also in talks with South Florida and Cincinnati, according to the source, and could add "pretty quickly." Factors on the decision include geography and television market viability, on-field performance and academic success.

If I were the ACC, I'd go after Louisville before UConn. But if you're a BBall guy/girl it reverses.

to be completely honest, UMD sucked at football and basketball, so go for whoever is gonna bring in more cash. I'd assume that's UCONN. But I'd rather see L'Ville for the sake of better football, and arguably hoops as well.

If you want to call yourself "The Atlantic Coast Conference", you go for UConn.

I'd go for whoever FSU/Clemson and the other FB schools want. To me, that would be Louisville. Much stronger overall athletics.

So that means Uconn will be the new member. ANd it will piss off some schools and cause even more unrest.

Yes, and the Big 10 has 14 teams, the Big XII has 10 teams and the Pac 12 has teams in the moutain time zone, and the Big East no longer has any eastern school besides Temple.

What do you get out of this? To me, FSU is happy that the conference is growing, but want to keep their options open. They and two others schools also did not like the initial exit fees presented by the ACC and talked them down to $20MM. And that other school, Maryland, the one I keep saying may end up in the Big 10.

He says he does not see the SEC expanding and taking FSU, but they are willing to listen if they decide too.

This guy, sounds very much that he is happy the ACC is being proactive, but w/o any huge FB powers coming aboard, he'd like FSU to look elsewhere if the opportunity came up.

lol, of course that is what you get out of this.

Nice read here in Nov
