He's been posting the same or very similar graphics since things were imploding this summer. He's a rando with a dream.. in August he "reported" that the Pac leftovers had merged with the American.

Well yeah, it could take time. My point was UConn already spends and generates more than any other G5. We are the only one left taking in 100M annually; the other G5s at this level all made the jump recently.

We are already at the level to join the P5 financially with basketball alone
Am I reading that wrong, or does that say $50M or 50% of those revenues are a subsidy?

The website isn't very clear but regardless our "percent allocated" is less than Houston and about the same as UCF, and similar to other candidates USF and Memphis

Since our revenue is larger overall, that amounts to more non-subsidized revenue than the others

Iowa-LSU's average 12.3 million viewers are more than:
• Every women's college basketball game ever
• Every ESPN college basketball game ever
• Every MLB game last season
• Every NHL game last season
• Every MLS game last season
• Every NBA game last season except one
• Every CFB regular season game last season except one

So time for the B12 / ACC to ask what can UConn do for them nationally for women’s basketball in a power conference.

LSU vs Caitlan and Iowa was a hugely hyped grudge map between two stars. That game may draw better than the Final.

UConn - Iowa may get up there too.
Will be a struggle to get to the same level given the abominable time slot- 9:30 (earliest) Friday night. Dumb dumb dumb on the part of the NCAA.

Welp - that still leaves the ACC with:

1) BC
2) Syracuse
3) Pitt or GT
4) Duke
5) Wake
6) Miami
7) SMU
8) Cal
9) Stanford
10) ND ... maybe

So then add:
11) UConn
12) WashState
13) OregonState
14) maybe Memphis or USF.

He posts too much fake stuff to believe. I'm convinced FSU ends up in the B1G and UNC the SEC anyways.

Cliff notes:

- says six leave the ACC

- two to Big Ten, four to SEC

- predicts each pay $200 million each; $1.2 billion total

- money might help the rest stay put; ND doesn't move out

- doesn't know who would join but is positive on UConn

Here are the 6 that he says will move.
SEC: UNC, Clemson, NC State, UVa
B1G: FSU, Miami

Has a caller (LOL) that he seems to think has some validity thinks Kansas or VT could pair with FSU instead of Miami.

Hard to believe we don't land somewhere, B12 or ACC. As one who has been very close to UConn Athletics for many years it was, and still is inconceivable to me that we are still in this position. I know, Rule #1 trumps all, but I still wake up in a cold sweat screaming "WTF, Rutgers and Louisville??" At that point my wife takes all sharp objects away from me, or if we are fighting, hands me a straight razor.

Take UConn, Washington State, Oregon State, San Diego State, USF and 1 more and ACC becomes the All Coasts Conference.
