the problem is the northeast schools all put themselves under somebody else's frame. They were never going to service the northeast schools. The ACC is a southern conference. The Big12 is a southern midwest conference. The Big10 is a mid-western conference. They will give lip service to everybody else but they will not serve them. Each one of them are outsiders.

This. The classic divide and conquer was applied against our region. The competitive pressures destroyed Northeast college football by splitting us up into different leagues where we are all outsiders. I think the implications of the collapse of Big East football for our region still isn't really understood

The west coast is now about to find out next with the fall of the Pac-12.

The South and the Midwest won. They ate everyone else up

Need a northeastern football conference. Penn State, Rutgers and Maryland won't join but after the ACC falls apart a conference might be cobbled together with UConn, BC, Cuse, Temple, Mass, Pitt, Buffalo, Deleware and maybe Army/Navy.

HCRE 1.0 was able to field strong teams on a consistent level, so why couldn’t Mora? All Mora needs is a decent DC and an OC. Things he does not have right now.

BCS

BIG EAST

You cannot compare what HCRE did in the 2000s to what Mora is dealing with in 2024.

Come on.

Of course should a northeast conference ever form and start to gain traction, the P4 and ESPN would do everything in their power to kill it, or even keep it from forming in the first place.

I realize college sports today are all about football money, and FSU is enraged at being shut out of the playoffs, but do you think thats enough to make the ACC fall apart?

And if that happened, why wouldn’t BC, Pitt, and Syracuse continue hunting for the big bucks, and try to join one of the remaining 2 or 3 FBS conferences?
