CSU AD Jack Graham - “If you get outside our borders, no one knows who we are. I was in Phoenix (last week) for the Mountain West meetings and there was a reception with all of the athletic directors. The bartender said to me, ‘Colorado State, where are you guys, Boulder?’ I’ve gotten that all my career. No one knows us outside our own boundaries."

no big surprise there. thought they might go Big 12 though.

Simply put the BE is the old grey mare

now that ND is off the table the Big 12 can decide and move forward with or without Louisville and team X

This wasn't completely unexpected. ND had a similar deal with the BE and never honored it (on the FB side). Wonder if they'll actually schedule ACC teams as they are suggesting. Can't really see it happening with their regular lineup.

Shouldn't affect the FB side of the media negotiations. Will have a small bump on the BB side.

Real betrayal of the NE BB schools though. They have to be pretty pissed right now.

Don't they already play 3-4 ACC teams a year anyways?

Wow. Huge. Hopefully this means Catholics vs. Convicts happens every year now. Missed that rivalry.

No doubt. I wonder if this will finally bring the full on split from the basketball schools?

Assuming the article is correct we will find out the tv value of Big East basketball without N.D. That's got to be a bit of a body blow right when the tv contract is up for renewal. Plus who knows the tv value if the ACC decided to take UCONN and the Big 12 Louisville?

I never really follow their schedule much so I don't know how many they played in years past. Looks like they have 4 this year if you count Pitt.

Anyone thinking this forces the big 12's hand?

Why would they leave the Big Least if the money was purported to be good?

I don't see how this effects the B12 at all.

I don't think so. The Big East is now the second best basketball conference in the country. Temple, Memphis, Louisville, UCONN, and Cincinatti are 5 of the top teams, the Catholic schools need them. A split would surprise me.

Maybe you haven't been keeping up on current events but we just got our azzes kicked.

I doubt this will start another round of shuffling on the FB side. ND FB will remain indy. They don't want to join anybody or they would have already. Doubt ACC will invite UConn either.

Does the BE take a hit? Sure. And the timing is a real slap in the face. But there you have it. Some of you will no doubt be elated.

Bevo was waiting to see what the domers were going to do. Not saying that the big 12 makes a move, but all the comments coming out of the big 12 stated that they would expand for ND.

Meh, I was actually hoping all this was over for a while so we could focus on sports.
