Makes sense, Big XII and Big East, and to a lesser extent the ACC, are all in danger of being plundered by the SEC, Pac 12 and Big 10. It'd be good for them all to be in contact.
This would be a fascinating meeting. I'd pay to watch this thing.
Maybe he is threatening the The big twelve and Acc if they poach teams from his conference the freakin Mob will be on your *****.
is it possible for the big east to get split up between the Big 12 and ACC?
if A&M leaves
big 12 - 9 teams
ACC - 12 teams
Big East - 8 teams
that's 29 teams for football and if the big east got split up, would that force ND to join either the big 12 or ACC because of their other sports? that makes 30 teams, 15 teams for the big 12 and 15 for the ACC.
edit: forgot about TCU joining Bthe Big East. so without ND it's 30, with them it's 31
I think it was a call threating trouble if Fred doesn't stay out of New York.
Seems like a wise decision because depending upon how this goes down it could be one of these conferences meeting its' demise... Either the Big 12 goes down and needs it's members getting into the Big East or the Big East gets poached like crazy and needs a home for its' remaining members...
Not sure what this could be except one exceptional ***** session.
What?! You mean secretly telling a team that that you are interested in having them and then have them petition to leave their conference so they can join yours but all the while publicly stating that you aren't interested in having them isn't the right way?Quote:
Marinatto didn't reveal details about his conversations with his fellow commissioners but said, "I thought it would be important for us to meet face-to-face and take the lead in trying to do things the right way."
All this pro-active stuff is new and scary... I don't trust it.
So maybe they turn 3 conf into 2 Super conf if they add a few teams?
