This invites a snarky response even though the idea is intriguing.
It apparently is Kansas who is in neither league but somehow tossed into the quoteThis invites a snarky response even though the idea is intriguing.
Do the "suits" not know that the Big East already has 11 teams so we don't need to add a team to get to 10?
If not, you should let them know.
Then, since the B1G has 14 members, and the Big East has 11, this amalgamation would have 25 teams so who, pray tell, is the mystery team #26? Or is that the one we'll be adding?
When it comes to sharing realignment rumors, you really ought to read the post out loud to yourself before deciding to share it.
While this rumor is fun, I have a hard time believing some random MSG employee has any insider knowledge on the subject.
sign me up. the catholic schools get 1/4 shares which would still be worth more than they get from the current BE deal. UConn and KU get 1/2 shares which would prob be worth around what the new big12 deal would pay KU. UConn would be the biggest winner in this round of realignment for once. ND still gets a full share as they do from the ACC assuming they also play 5 football games/year.Basketball
Kansas, Nebraska, Creighton, Iowa, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Marquette, DePaul, Northwestern
Illinois, Indiana, Butler, Purdue, Xavier, Ohio State, Michigan, Michigan State, ND
UConn, Nova, Georgetown, St Johns, Providence, Seton Hall, Rutgers, Maryland, Penn State
East - Indiana, Maryland, Michigan, Michigan State, Ohio State, Penn State, Rutgers, and UConn
West - Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota, Nebraska, Northwestern, Purdue, Wisconsin and Kansas.
What about Butler?sign me up. the catholic schools get 1/4 shares which would still be worth more than they get from the current BE deal.

not huge amounts, just a few million more than the current BE pays. that's a drop in the bucket for the big10 but very valuable to the BE. even if each BE team received 1/4 shares as compared to big10 football members, we'd be getting more money than we do now from the fox deal.Needless to say, ALL BE teams would require huge amounts of cash for this to become a reality.
I don't know what's in this for the B1G. They don't make enough money?
How could this be profitable?What’s the end game from this Craziness? 3 divisions of 9 teams, top 5 in each division plus one wildcard makes the tourney at MSG? This would be a really sick tournament.
This requires an addition which it seems could be Kansas. Why would Kansas do this?
If the B1G can keep their football money intact and each team picks up an extra 10M then it’s doable. Add in the additional cable or streaming fees for the B1G network. There may be enough money, but this is too crazy. BTW, the women’s side would be a fun tournament also. I thought the UConn women put up some good numbers on the B1G network?
I cant see Fox paying 260M a year for this though. How could this be profitable?
how much would a football scheduling alliance of 3+ games be worth to Kansas and UConn?
edit: my assumption is this is basketball only.
I’d like you to be right, but no way the BE members or just UConn get more than the B1G Teams.How could this be profitable?
I think the B12 TV deal ends 2025 and B10 ends 2023.
Both conferences have espn/fox split deals.
The B10 negotiates a new 6 year deal with Kansas getting the equivalent of its current B12 deal for the balance of this new deal after joining in 2025 (the new B12 deal will be less).
UConn gets $15m per year.
The 10 non football schools get $10M (in total a $50M per year increase).
The offset is the devaluation of the B12 and AAC contracts. The networks are paying less in total, and aren’t paying to the lower tier AAC and B12 programs.
Someone should post this on a popular big 10 board and see the reactions.
