    Expect UCONN and Lousiville to the ACC.

    I thought the ACC teams just agreed that to leave the conference then they have to pay a
    50 million dollar exit fee.

    I also thought they'd put in a prohibitive exit fee. Rutgers to the B1G? I think the facade is slipping...

    So they didn't want Missouri but would take Rutgers or Maryland? Doesn't make any sense.

    Markets. Rutgers = NYC, Maryland = D.C.

    Subscription fees for the Big Ten Network in those big media areas are what the Big Ten is seeking with this move, IMO. Competitively though, it makes a rapidly slipping conference even more mediocre.

    Not all agreed, including FSU.

    We are headed to 16 team super conferences, whether we like it or not. I think geographic balance and expanding our TV market footprint would almost have to mean that we take two schools from the states of North Carolina and/or Virginia eventually.

    Two huge TV markets and two Sunbelt quality teams. The BIG gets richer and weaker.

    I'm sick of expansion. This last expansion has done us no good.
