Default Realignment....winners and losers....

http://msn.foxsports.com/college-foo...ignment-070114

How much money did it take for Maryland to turn its back on the ACC? If projections are correct about twenty million a year. We're headed for a new television world order where the SEC and the Big Ten dwarf every other conference in TV money. It's not going to be close. That's why I believe the ACC will eventually lose four more members to the Big Ten and the SEC. The SEC will take teams in Virginia and North Carolina



Honest question, if Syracuse doesn't leave for the ACC aren't they added to the Big Ten instead of Rutgers? The brand is much better, you still get New York state, and it's a better geographic fit for the Big Ten.
Wouldn't every Syracuse fan prefer to be in the Big Ten too?
Instead you jumped to the ACC from the Big East, from one unstable conference to another unstable conference.



The teams in the SEC, Big Ten, and Pac 12 can rest assured that whatever comes in the future, their conference is secure. The teams in the ACC and the Big 12? You're ground zero for the next conference realignment earthquakes.

The ACC isn't unstable.

The guy is talking a decade from now....10 years....the grant of rights will be running out and the difference in money will make most schools think twice before signing on for any additional years. I think he is dead on if status quo is where we are headed. The acc and Big 12 money vs B1G and SEC money......huge difference and second thoughts by all.

Yep, its the end of these deals that will make the difference. No ACC network means someone will want to jump ship. The taters wish the SEC wanted them, but no thanks.

The acc made the right move for themselves....They knew they were way out of line on the football side of things but way up on the basketball side....They will own basketball TV money for a long time just like the SEC and The Big ???...does in football...

Basketball vs football = not close.....football pays the way in college athletics. The basketball TV money they may or may not own is mediocre at best....

It would be if the NCAA did not keep the majority of the NCAA Tourney money which basically funds the whole NCAA. The TV contract is currently at $771 million a year.

I think they will pick the Big 10. However, the SEC would take them in a heartbeat. Duke or UVA as well.
