"I agree, Mr. President. In fact, they might even try an immediate sneak attack so they could take over our mineshaft space."
Yeah. I think it would be extremely naive of us, Mr. President, to imagine that these new developments are going to cause any change in Soviet expansionist policy. DeSadeski kneels, unseen, and begins photographing the big board with a secret camera within a pocket watch. I mean, we must be... increasingly on the alert to prevent them from taking over other mineshaft space, in order to breed more prodigiously than we do, thus, knocking us out in superior numbers when we emerge! Mr. President, we must not allow... a mine shaft gap!
I remember a while back the Pac 12 was thinking about marketing to the Far East. That means they'll probably expand there in a couple decades.
I say we beat them to the punch. To get from 32 to 36 we go for South America. I'm sure they'll be interested. We just say the word football and throw some TV money in front of them and they'll sign anything.
I really like the idea of 3 - 10 team conferences although I don't think it's feasible. The lack of a championship game hinders the conferences financially, and realignment also raises huge question marks - I don't think Boston College is too keen on returning to the Big East. I also don't think it's possible to form two conferences out of this - why would one conference commissioner agree to losing their job? Now, if the discussion between the 3 conferences were about how to raise viewership among the area between the conferences - now THAT would be something that would turn around the Big 12. Perhaps each Big 12 school hosts 1-Big East team and travels to 1-ACC team and vice-versa every season. That would increase the footprint of all 3 conferences from Texas to Florida, and Iowa to New York.
If we can go out to UCONN and win this fall, I think that would help put us on the map with the Big East. Maybe help them recognize us if **** hits the fan.
