    the ACC media GOR lasts till 2037 and will be nearly impossible to breach

    and if anything is clear over the last several months is that NONE of these media members, bloggers, and pontifcators know a damn thing about what is happening. They are all full of shit

    Instead of worrying about the Blazers ownership, i wish Phil & fellow powerhouse Pacific dudes would figure a way to keep the Pac 12 alive, with a new network. Maybe they are. Being a part of a Stupor Conference, the Big 16 , or whatever they call the damn thing, just sucks.

    Five-star quarterback Michael Van Buren, a top-20 prospect in 2024, committed to Oregon on Saturday.

    Van Buren, from St. Frances Academy (Maryland), is ranked 18th overall in the 2024 class and is the second-best-rated pocket passer in the class behind Georgia commit Dylan Raiola (No. 1 overall).
    "He would be the highest-ranked quarterback to sign with the Ducks since ESPN began ranking players in 2006 and would be the program's highest-ranked overall recruit to commit to Oregon since linebacker Justin Flowe (No. 10 overall) in 2020."

    That was one of two big Saturday commitments for the Ducks. The other was from Oklahoma DT Xadavien Sims. Good size at 6'4 280 and a top recruit on all the sites. Lanning is putting together a tremendous class

    The regulations doesn't change how bad they want certain teams

    Doesnt mean its likely to happen

    but say there was a “big board”

    certain teams and regions are higher than others

    interesting how i was talking about UNC and Virginia in July (when no one else was) and this article comes out nearly 10 months later :cool2:

    True, teams and regions are important. Which is why they are looking west to fill more late-night time slots.

    Lol, the B1G is against late-night games as a conference. So looking “west” doesnt mean jack shit unless they can convince the premiere schools (Ohio State, Michigan, Penn State and maybe a couple others) to start playing late night games when theyre all very opposed to it. Good luck.

    And Notre Dame, as far as I know, isnt on the west coast and they are far and away #1.

    apparently the previous Big-10 commissioner left some booby-traps and unfinished business in those much hyped media deals and the Big-10 is on the hook for the mistakes. So, until they can get all that sorted out, and further expansion is probably off the table. And a couple of reports suggest straightening this all out might be a real challenge and could sink to some litigation

    No one likes late-night games, except the networks who pay the bills. With more games out west the teams in the midwest might not need to play late at night in November. Not at home anyways

    It's the landscape now. NIL money is all over the place for the upper level teams. Ducks have been beaten out because they didn't have enough money at some points. Slowly, it is being modified where it isn't all so much up front like it was at the beginning. WIP all the way around.

    you sound like a beevur

    that counter above started in 2014 (playoffs started in 2014). So, for 8 seasons now, and NIL has only been around for 2 seasons. If you take the 2 NIL years out of the equation:

    Oregon 15
    USC 14
    Stanford 13
    Washington 12
    Oregon State 2

    and of course, NIL is part of the equation now. It's going to give the schools in big markets with big, wealthy, donor bases, significant advantages. Oregon has neither of those. For schools like Oregon (and OSU), their NIL will have to be highly efficient and expertly targeted. Still, the reality is going be kind of like some schools will be operating with a hard salary cap half the size of other schools. And as the gap of these conference media disbursements grows wider and wider, the have will just have a whole lot more than the have nots

    NCAA sports operated for decades in a fool's paradise. It was inevitable that the athletes would finally get a slice of the pie. But that, added to the rather vulgar influence of billions & billions of media money has opened a pandora's box of inequity. The overall direction of college football and basketball is not encouraging
