Conference realignment "Rumors" "tweets" "etc"

Recommended Posts

Quote

"I can appreciate your pride for the University of Central Florida and in the University of South Florida," Bowlsby's letter says, "not only as an alumnus of both institutions, but also on the heels of tremendously successful football seasons for the Knights and Bulls."

We're doomed. Our only chance at the P5 hinges upon latching on to the national champions' skirt-tails and Bowlsby didn't even acknowledge that spectacular accomplishment.

Hate to say it but it looks like the Big 12 is on a death path as long as Bowlsby with them. Come 2025, I will be shocked if they survive.

B12 refuses to admit winter is coming, they don't believe in the white walkers. Does Bowlsby think UT and OK are gonna take him along for the ride when the conference dies and they move on? Or is it just the bane of capitalism where he only cares about the next quarterly balance sheet and not anything sustainable?

Bowlsby is doing what UT as OU wants. He and they will be fine. Those two will not move on because no other conference will give them the deal they give themselves. When the time works for them, they will add. The Pac-12 and the Big10 got left out this season not the Big 12 so the argument that they need a championship game is flawed.  What exactly is their motivation?

This is marketing. Need to keep our brand fresh in the minds of all P5.

I still won’t be completely surprised if the Big12 stays intact in 7 years...especially if they have one team that makes the playoffs in four of those years. If they do, they won’t expand as they will increase the $ to each team.

I misspoke, they do have a championship game, just not the traditional two division format. However, the point is the same, there is no need to expand as long as their 1 loss or undefeated champion is getting in.

They'll expand if they feel like it expands the brand and increases revenue.  As of now, that probably isn't the case

The lone wolf dies, but the pack survives.

Figured I'd toss this in here as it can go right into the rumors bin.

Had a conversation with a high level USF employee who wrote the following when I asked about any good news they'd been hearing:

"Fund raising campaign with a focus on small donations can have BOTH IPF and OCS paid for, in full, in record time. With very small individual investment. Alumni must be ready to activate. Critical for conference realignment. Shovel in ground once a certain level of fund raising occurs."

 

Now I'm not here to say whether this is going to happen or not and I wasn't about to argue counterpoint with a high level USF employee, but with the projected price tag of an IPF and an OCS you'd think it would cost a lot more than a bunch of small donation, especially when we are only talking what...25k die hards? Maybe more would come forward for an OCS but hey what do I know...just tossing out what I hear.
