Re: College Football Realignment
I don't see how NCAA keeps this from eventually going to court under the Sherman Anti-Trust Act. The Big 10, ESPN, etc IMO have been trying to setup a monopoly where they control A) all the money, B) all the competition, C) where everyone plays, etc. I've found myself having fun speculating who ends up where because I have no real control over any of it but when you look at the big picture...
A) Universities are butchering themselves
B) Student athletes are being thrown under the bus for the greed of a select few. Especially those that play multiple games a week (basketball, soccer, etc).
C) Congress hasn't gotten involved yet because the same "class" is in charge of both. They wine and dine each other talking about how much their endowments are.
D) NCAA's been nuetered a long time ago.
One of three things will seriously end up with this either someone will find a way to take this to court and win reducing the power of individual conferences, b) congressional oversight, c) people will stop caring as every major rivalry will eventually be shredded up and thrown away for the chase of dollars.
