  1. Is that 1 or 2 penalty kicks that El Tri has been robbed of in the opening 10-15 minutes?
  2. What I heard was that the Big Ten was looking to add USC and Notre Dame to get to 16 members. If this report can be believed, at least USC reciprocates the interest. I don’t think that ND is a viable option due to a clause in its current contract with the ACC, which supposedly stipulates that if ND chooses to join a conference it must join the ACC. Not sure how ironclad that is if it exists. Also, not sure how keen ND would be on moving to the Big Ten over the ACC anyway. Assuming ND stands pat, would the Big Ten be okay with just adding USC and staying at 15 members, or as this video rep
  3. NIL, new Transfer Portal rules, abandoned long-standing traditions for the sake of unabashed financial gain (in the name of “amateurism”), etc., we are entering a New Era of College Football with all new rules. This begs the question, Is the time now to allow for Football-Only Conferences? Discuss. (If y’all want to take the initiative and make this its own thread, feel free.)
  4. In related news, @mugtang is looking into whether or not he can void the sale of the MWCboard. (pic of mugtang during the last Conference Realignment round)
  5. “Crawl back to” as in crawl and beg to join again, as they did the last round of realignment, and got rejected. I’m aware that they were never a member of the AAC but they were conference mates with many of the current members from their old Big East football days.
  6. It’s interesting, and telling, that there seems to be a sense of inevitability that UT and OU are all but out the door. The key part of the quote: “Everything will be on the table. One source indicated it could go as large as 16 schools.”, to me indicates that this is the most extreme option that may be possible but is not very likely. The more likely scenario is that the Big 12 grows back to at least a 10-school membership and probably back to 12 schools. One thing Thames neglects to consider is WVU affiliation. WVU is already on record bitching about the hassle and expense o
  7. Then that leaves, NIU, Rice, North Texas, and UTSA. Over the same 2010-2019 timeframe (wins in parentheses), NIU (91), UTSA (48*), North Texas (53), Rice (47). *UTSA (2012-2020) has only played nine seasons total but I included the 2020 season since it played a full 12-game schedule. Added BYU for comparison purposes. During the same 2010-2019 timeframe, BYU has 77 wins (rounded to 8)…OR…if you prefer, since BYU played a full 12-game schedule in 2020, 81 wins (still rounded to 8) over the 10 year span between 2011-2020. Interestingly enough, if you wanted to use both
  8. If you’re eliminating the AAC and Sun Belt schools listed, then your list of 20 is now a list of NINE. Probably about half of those nine could easily be discounted as well, leaving you with NIU, the three TX schools from CUSA, and maybe Louisiana Tech.
  9. I’ve seen it posted here several times and many/most seem to agree that it’s a priority with the conference but who knows if it actually is. Problem is, there really isn’t anywhere else to go. IF the MWC wanted to add BYU, and IF it wanted to add a 14th team to even things out, the only current FBS teams available in the Mountain and Pacific time zones are New Mexico State and UTEP. Given those options, the conference will almost assuredly go east.
  10. If what’s been posted here multiple times is true, that the MWC wants a presence in the CT zone in order to get coveted early time slots, then (for that reason and many others) that 14th spot wouldn’t go to New Mexico State. Would the 14-team MWC look like this? West Division Boise St. Fresno St. SDSU SJSU Nevada UNLV Hawaii Mountain Division Wyoming Colorado St. Air Force New Mexico Utah St. BYU (CT zone team) “Available/Potential” CT zone teams Houston (AAC) SMU (
  11. Look at current FBS teams in the Central Time Zone. Top 20 Markets in the CT zone: #3 Chicago #4 Dallas #5 Houston #16 Minneapolis #20 St. Louis
