MEAC is shrinking and now they are asking D2 HBCUs to move up to fill in the gaps. It remains to be seen if those HBCUs can make the move up and stay D1.
- this appears to be a recap of old news
- I don't have the subscription to read the full article, but this positions NCSU and VT as expansion possibilities for the SEC. I'm mildly curious as to the full content, while being dubious of McGee's knowledge, but I still think UNC will be the school that the SEC next targets.
- point of debate on the VT realignment forum, which conferences would be most willing to allow Texas to keep the Longhorn Network? Consensus seems to be the ACC and the Pac12, which I think makes sense. I don't see the B1G or SEC being willing to negotiate that.
- note: trigger for this discussion is around potential move of the Pac 12 HQ to LV (Vegas gets more visitors originating from Texas than any other state except California)
Expand to a 14-game regular season, let OU schedule the whorns and cowgirls and let KU schedule Missouri and KSU and everybody is happy.I read something last night that ranked the top ten realistic expansion targets for the Pac-12.
Follow the money. Always.Given the news of the 12 team playoff recommendation and I think it's going to pass. Does this cool down realignment for awhile?
All the good looking girls all have a date to the dance. Maybe Missouri moves to the Big Ten someday. Maybe WV joins the ACC. That slut Texas and her backwater cousin OU bimbo might jump someday. But thats it. Everyone has a date. Unless someone lifts up some of them uglier girls, they aint getting in without some work.Follow the money. Always.
Realignment will happen whenever a conference sees a significant margin for adding a school & the school also sees a big payday. For the school, it's not always about the direct revenue from the conference. CU's calculus, for example, heavily weighted toward connecting with more of its out-of-state alum donors.

Nah. Every conference needs bottom feeders. If you kick some out, others will take over the space vacated. It sucks for some schools who missed the boat, and it’s fortunate for schools who have been floating on a life raft for 60 years.Good analysis
Somebody is going to have to be ready to put out to get invited.
Wouldn't surprise me if some of the conferences aren't trying to figure out how to divorce the ones they have been married to for a long time but who don't do much of the work but still make sure they get a big slice of the pie.
