    I joined this site due to realignment. It was the only good thing to come out of realignment.

    The Pac really needs Urb to resurrect USC. The conference is a huge afterthought.

    Let's hope for ISU's sake this pay to play doesn't create an NFL type of league with the best 25-30 teams, because we certainly wouldn't make that cut. We all love what CMC and JP have done with the football program the last few years, but we still have a big hill to climb to truly compete with the haves of CFB.

    No way. I love this 10 team league. (Granted, I'd rather have Baylor replaced by Louisville)

    "The schools with keen interest (Boise State and San Diego State, UNLV and Brigham Young) miss the sweet spot:

    None are secular research institutions that would enhance the Pac-12 brand and bring enough value to the conference’s media rights package to increase revenue for current members."

    Anyone else laugh at this quote? I love it when academics or research comes up in a conference realignment conversation.

    Alex, I'll take "Who are Nebraska and Missouri for $700".

    The Pac 12 isn't interested in expanding right now. (Not because they don't want to, but because they don't have a choice. Their league is a dumpster fire compared to other P5s.)

    All I gathered from that claptrap is that the "NFL gets it." If the NFL knows what it is doing and that is the model to follow, then the P5 schools will negotiate a deal with all networks in order to make the most money.

    Imagine the NFC North competing against the AFC West for a separate TV deal? Absurd...

    It seems to me that a 32 team NFL lite college football league is absolutely coming. Every playoff / realignment move in the last 10-15 years is on that course.

    It's not necessarily a bad thing...those of us that remain can still be the top tier CFB league. There will just be a semi-pro (or pro) league above us.

    The schools in that league would lose their non profit status which is why it likely never happens.

    I wish the NFL would do something like this. Living in Iowa I am tired of only watching NFC North games. I wish channels like CBS and FOX were for the Game of the week games and channels like CBS Sports, FS1, ESPN etc would show the remaining games. Would be interesting to see if they would make more money that way vs sunday ticket.
