I was wondering when someone was going to point this out.That was the thought I had. It's mostly illusory. Large populations do not = college football eyeballs. I remember that, in my time in NYC, I had to dig to the back of the sports section in the Times to find any info about college football...
There is a lot we agree with on general and I think we both have a lot of negativity about the direction things are headed. I've been as resistant to some of the changes to college football as anyone here. Sorry for using your post as an excuse to elaborate on a couple of things.I was wondering when someone was going to point this out.
Los Angeles has lost the Raiders, Chargers, and Rams as football teams - and go look at how empty the Coliseum is when USC is a mediocrity.
Well in my previous post I delved into how much state lines matter. Washington DC is a special case though, but I've seen all sorts of claims in terms of what school can reach them. In truth it's Maryland territory, but very tepid support even for Maryland. Really it's just another example of how much state lines matter, because the favorite team in Washington DC only enjoys 15% support and that's just about the lowest you'll see anywhere.I just fail to see how, say, Washington DC is gonna get all excited to see UVA get blown out by UGA.
The real victims (Strangely Enough, in this case) will be those who do not have a seat at either table. (Mad Max Scenario)This is like when the North Side (Bugs Moran) and South Side (Al Capone) Gangs lit up Chicago during Prohibition.
Question is - who will be the victims of the St. Sankey's Day Massacre?
I got new eyes, so to speak, 2 months ago.Well, my old eyes can't read it. What does it say?
I looked on twitter and it is just as illegible...to me.
Well, some of the stuff is just throwing up something to see what sticks. For instance he says: " Miami and Virginia Tech are reasonable SEC candidates. So on and so forth. "
Football drove USC and UCLA to the Big Ten, but could (eventually) mean big changes in college basketball, tooSuper-conferences are on the way, raising the possibility the NCAA Tournament as we know it could be a thing of the pastwww.cbssports.com
How this affects hoops. But some behind the scenes perspective from a well connected fella.
More cred regarding Clemson, FSU, Tech, and Miami being SEC targets.
