if the nbe does get these type of #'s rumored. then espn will work with fox and cbs to do more damage. they will get the sec to add 2 more quick and the b12 to add to atleast 12 which will make the acc add more and kill off more of the nbe. they are just waiting to see what the nbe gets. espn will make a power 5 out of it in the end, there doing things slowly on purpose and baiting nbc into thinking its got something and investing into it before they pull the plug on its dreams. just imagine the nbe gets 14mil or w/e the number is. the b12 gets between 20 and 22. then espn and fox(b12 tv) get a couple acc schools for 12. then the sec adds 2(espn and cbs) for 16. now the b10 is looking and the b12 knows it has to get to 16 before the pac starts sniffing. the acc to survive has to add also to keeps its new contract which already is the worst of the power 5. uconn, rutgers, temple, byu, usf will all get swept up in that by someone. possibly even more. they will make it a power 5 in the end and espn will f with nbc. the final result is a power 5 confs with a mwc and a cusa fighting for 6th, but very far behind. when the playoff goes to 8, you can have 5 auto bids basically and 3 opens for a 2nd sec, a nd possible and others who are top 10 teams etc...i just can't wait for it all to happen and for uconn in 10 years to go from nothing to in the convo.
