So I know posting this will elicit a lot of strong opinions, but it is kind of hard to deny.

FYI, I still follow him on twitter from back in the day (for funzzies) and take everything with a grain of salt. That said, he hardly ever posts anymore so it isn't like he threw a ton of crap against the wall and deleted what didn't happen. This was one of his few posts, and it is damn near prophetic.
twitter embed isnt rendering. what did it say?

Phoenix is growing at an insane rate right now. Get the arizona schools asap. There is a lot of talent already out of AZ. In the future the talent will only get better. The fan bases are good as well. It'd be stupid to not grab them.
Tailgating stinks in Tuscon, different culture. The stadium needs a reno bad as well.

New Big 12 commish should call Phil Knight and look into forming a league around Nike to entice Oregon and to bring their Washington buddies. Can find a way to sunset teams existing deals with adidas/under armor and become a full blown Nike extension. It would be easy to market a “Nike Development League”. Can capitalize on the lifestyle marketing for NIL. All these athletes want to be like Tiger, Lebron, Ronaldo, etc. this could be a pathway to do it. Create exclusivity and access to perks and it will thrive.
Dude, that’s actually a pretty solid plan. Nice job.

Yep, we knew that. Utah would be alright, the others would not help us at all. OTOH, if we got Utah, somehow enticed Oregon and Washington, and maybe add Stanford or Boise St (eyeballs), that could be a pretty formidable league.

stanford they will join the big ten or drop sports u guys best bet is ariz or ariz st utah then unlv or colo st
No offense, but you may want to sit this one out. As previously stated, the AZ’s add no value, and UNLV or CS? The former is one of the worst college football programs of all time, and the latter a middling MWC school with no fan base.

Average football TV viewership per the remaining free agent schools:
1. Notre Dame - (3.61M)
2. Clemson - (2.67M)
3. Florida State - (2.23M)
4. Oklahoma State - (1.64M)
5. Miami - (1.503M)
6. TCU - (1.495M)
7. Stanford - (1.43M)
8. Oregon - (1.34M)
9. Washington - (1.32M)
10. West Virginia - (1.27M)

My best bet is that Notre Dame and a few more Pac 12 schools go to the B1G to get them to 20.

The ACC has a TV deal that locks their schools in until 2036. Any team that left early would have to pay a $52M exit fee and forfeit their TV rights for the next 14 years! The only way that could happen is if enough teams left to dissolve their conference.

If the SEC plans to go to 20 teams anytime soon, we may have a real shot at getting an invite. They don't care about academic prestige, and we bring TV viewers.
Plus a rivalry game that the media loves.
