    Perhaps to the Big 10 as the Rutgers replacement?

    I can hear Delany talking with the presidents...

    Dove's Prayer

    Oh, Dear God.
    Thank you. You are such a Good God.
    Just a kind, gentle and accommodating God.
    And we thank you oh sweet Lord of Hosts
    for the smorgasbord that you have aptly lain at our table
    this day and each day by day...day by day...by day
    Oh Lord, pretty things we pray to love thee more dearly
    to see thee more clearly...to follow thee more nearly
    day by day by day. Amen.

    NOW GET US INTO THE *****ING BIG 12 BITCH!!!

    @Dove if we don't get an invite, that post will be Exhibit 1 in the Boneyard's first preseason hanging.

    I don't think the math works for ESPN/Fox to pay the networks not to expand, but I still think no expansion is the result. I just don't think they will get paid.

    If ESPN was going to pay someone not to expand, they would get a Tier III deal with 3 schools in order to get "no" votes out of them. They don't need to pay all 10 schools not to expand.

    There's definitely a number that works for them. $20 million pro rata - $3 million AAC money for Houston/UConn/Cincy = $17 million difference. If true value to the media of those schools is say $8 million, you can pay B12 say $5 million for one school. B12 mandates you pay for two schools, so you're out $10 million additional per year, but that's leverage for you, and you're saving $24 million without "overpaying" for anything. Many in B12 don't want to expand, so you don't have to pay the full amount to get them to not dilute the conference and remove the pro rata. $10 million over the 8 or so years is $80 million, $8 million for each school B12 school for free.

    Prediction on words and phrases we'll hear in today's B12 League press conference:
    .. " had very productive meetings ".. " we have several fine schools that want admittance, we are honored that, blah, blah blah".. " we have not ruled out expansion ".. " we have agreed unanimously to continue our discussions with ourselves, our TV partners, these many fine applicant Universities"..." we have strengthened our B12 bonds this weekend"..... yada, yada, yada..... ( did I say) " very productive meetings this weekend " ?

    Which means then that every school's fanbase will know the B12 decision(s) even before the B12 microphones have a test run by engineers before their presser at 6:30 EST.

    Aren't the AAC exit fees down to about $1.7 mn, which would make the departure of 4 schools split among the remaining 8 a windfall for UConn of $850,000, or about the ticket gate from 3 women's basketball games.

    I thought they are $10MM with a 27 month notice. Any school(s) looking to get out before 27 months will end up paying more like the Lville, Rutgers, Syracuse & Pitt did

    My mistake. It wasn't posted in this thread so I thought maybe it was disregarded.

    Big 12 meeting had ended. Texas prez has left. ISU's Steven Leath just left, said "I've got to run a university."

    In other words, "I can't believe I wasted my time coming to Dallas for this BS"

    RE: Chip Brown saying multiple sources say no expansion.

    No expansion is the second-best result for us behind 4-team expansion with us. Don't think we make cut with two. So no news is actually okay news.

    I like how he somehow got multiple sources on record so quickly when UT's prez just left. Must be voodoo or magic.

    They have tier 3 deals with Texas and Kansas. I think IMG has WVU while Fox has the other seven.
