    He's a big red hack. If you're such a sucker that you believe this ambiguous "looking in" he mentions means that the B1G is going to invite KU during the GoR period, well then enjoy his columns/posts.

    But please don't confuse his rumor mongering with journalism.

    I'm curious if Jim Delany is counted among the "most powerful people in college athletics"?

    Because if he was, wouldn't Notre Dame be in the B1G right now?

    Of note, the NCAA is a big part of the problem here. Some how long ago they decided to be out of the major college football game. Why the hell haven't they done with major college football that they did with every other sport, control the post season. If the NCAA had controlled the post season and the money coming from that, I don't think we are in as big of a mess as it currently is.
    The power conferences will never break away from the NCAA as many numbskulls have suggested. What they may do is to create a new division under the NCAA umbrella for those schools who have the financial resources to fund full Cost of Attendence for all of their student-athletes. The NCAA BB tourneys would remain as-is but they would conduct a separate FB playoff.

    gor is not going if the B1G adds anyone its vandy and mizzou no GOR.. SEC is stronger and richer and B1G is richer I. Those schools fit the B1G model better and they can profit even if they stink. Doubt they would go for it though. If they can't get acc schools they can't get anyone. We will renew our gor in 5 years long before it's done only thing will stop it is if our model becomes un profitable or we become so weak we can't get in the playoffs. I see neither happening. They need to move on. This speculation will kill us.

    No...because ND doesn't want to be in the Big Ten right now. That quote means if the most powerful people in sports agree upon something...say like Texas wanting to join the Big Ten and the Big Ten wanting to add Texas (just an example, not suggesting that it would happen)...regardless of the contractual agreements already existing...it will happen.

    This does not affect us in any way, but the Davidson Wildcats are moving to the A-10.

    Certainly KC cannot continue to be a Big 12 town after this move. Time to move the MBB tourney...

    The only question now is whether the rumors that the Big 12 will need a title game are true. If so who would you all favor adding?

    Slip a horse head in Pres Kaler's and Pres Easter's beds with a note that reads,

    It might be time to move on.
    Sincerely,
    Your buddy, Jimmy D.


    ???

    It might be worth a try...
