Not after we feed Penn State to the sharks, no.
Well, [Mark May]. Why didn't you say so? Just add Virginia, NC AND Ga.Tech and be done with it.
So I guess that now makes it:
+ No one who matters
- Everyone of consequence
- Those schools that don't matter
Watching the announcement of the Pres. of the U of M that they were joining the bigf 10 and no one applauded...not one person lol.
Kind of hurt my feelings. snif
So the 'G' was a '6' all along, not a '0'. I see what they did there...
By the time Delaney, Slive and the Longhorns are done picking over the carcass of the ACC, those five ACC games that the domers agreed to might very well be a full conference slate.
I'm convinced that NitFan1974 is a long game troll. He appeared around Tug Speedwell's blaze of eternal interweb glory, kept his head down and has been doing some really solid work over there.
It's the untapped oil field mentality. Create a product (BTN) that they're interested in and they'll watch. Maybe that product isn't Terp football - maybe it's Buckeye football or Husker football, since so many Ohio and Nebraska expats live on the East Coast. Maybe it is Terp football, and they're a sleeping giant. Doesn't matter what that hook is, the fact is, there are fish there waiting for that hook.
Or, think about it this way - if 16-team conferences are inevitable, where is expansion going to happen that has a better, untapped, competition-free market than the Upper East with its tens of millions of TVs? Is the Big Ten realistically going to expand into SEC country? Of course not. Same with the West Coast, the lower East Coast and Texas. If we're competing for those eyeballs, that's the place to compete. And being the first there with a promising product like the BTN is a good thing in that competition.
Finally, the Big Ten is showing, clearly, that they are the ones doing the choosing here. They're not taking SEC leftovers after they've taken their pick from the litter. They're being proactive, and that's very encouraging.
In that case, I'll ask him to carry on. Can't blame a guy for assuming the worst on that board. :tongue2:
This....I've contacted my MD and UNC friends and they are unified in their hatred for Duke. They call him Hitler. They say Duke BB runs the conference.....including UNC
So basically...they're the Texas of the ACC.
It's funny listening to two Maryland alums that work for ESPN have opposite views on the move.
Len Elmore hates it and Scott Van Pelt accepts it (and the money).
I still remember seeing Van Pelt in Maui when he followed the Terps to the Maui Invitational (on his vacation). He's a real die-hard Terp.
