If that's all the Big 10 ends up with, that's a pretty sad haul. I'm fine with Kansas but it's a small state and Iowa St. is pretty meh. They could just stop at 15 for now.B1G
I watched a video posted earlier and I guess the SEC really might be trying to go for some sort of knockout punch, but I can't help but think it might backfire. In a 4 conference world, the SEC still only has 25% of the say. They might have 50% of the football powers, but ask Texas A&M what being outvoted feels like and A&M is the richest SEC program. In truth they could be losing some political power, since the Big 12 did ally with them sometimes and now they probably won't exist.
I guess the play here is just to suffocate the Pac-12 and ACC financially. That was happening already though, the SEC was set to be up on them 20 million or so per year, but I guess the idea is that this is an arms race and the SEC is putting themselves in a position to buy the most weapons. The problem is they're going to be shooting themselves with those weapons.
