    It's still all about Notre Dame, but if they make 15, with Maryland and Rutgers on board I think UNC is the Big Ten's next best realistic target where both parties would win.

    The people who say "Texas" are deluding themselves. The tiny microscopic chance of Texas joining the Big Ten circled the drain when they expanded into New Jersey and Maryland.

    The trend is moving toward major teams in the same state not being in the same major conference. ISU and Iowa have always been that way, but a lot of these ACC/Big East (it's been like one conference for 20 years now basically) teams are headed in that direction.

    shaggybevo has someone saying the goal is not 16 but 20 and that the networks want 3 20 team "leagues" for which there would be 2 from each league in the 6 team playoff. fwiw.

    Basically, your TV money belong to the conference regardless of it you actually in the conference. And if you are not in the conference, you don't get a dime. Do I have that right? Trying to tell someone at the ACC school I attend why it is superior to a large buyout.

    Correct. Conference owns your TV value regardless of conference affiliation.

    That is true for the 1st and 2nd tier rights. Everyone keeps their own 3rd tier. So like if Texas left they would keep the money from their Longhorn Network.

    Right, just trying to get through baby steps right now. The VT message board is funny, lots of doom and gloom. Glad to see ISU will probably not be in that boat this time.

    Anybody know when the ACC $50 million buy-out goes into effect for Pitt? Pitt's not as flashy as FSU, but adding L'ville and Pitt seems like it would help flesh out the Big 12's eastward expansion, bring somewhat driveable games for us ISU fans, bring back the backyard brawl, and pick up some nice TV real estate. Plus Pitt, as a university, is a much better get, academically, than FSU.

    That said, I'd still rather get FSU if the option is available just for recruitment purposes.

    Cool, thanks guys. I knew it had to do with tv money being forfeited, I just couldn't come up with the acronym. Thanks again!
