    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.

    I think the NCAA has been hesitant to get involved in this because they're afraid the moment they do, the 'Big 5' conferences are bolting and creating their own governing body.

    At this point, I wish the big 12, 10, SEC, and PAC would just go to 16 and get this over with. Better to just rip the band aid off at once.

    I guess you may see that depending on the MD case...

    The original tweet that started all this has been removed. Lots of smoke, but I don't know if we can say fire just yet.

    I think it's the same WV know-nothings (just these particular guys, not WV folks in general) that are stirring up the rumors and others and just running with those rumors.

    It'll be UConn. They and Louisville were the two finalists the last time -- UC was an 11th hour push.

    College of Charleston to Join CAA in 2013

    After a month of negotiating with the CAA, College of Charleston has accepted an invitation to join the CAA for the 2013-2014 season. The move gives the CAA a school to replace Georgia St., VCU and ODU, which have already left or leaving next year. Charleston gains more recruiting and exposure in the northeast due to their association with the CAA.

    Virginia.

    If the SEC moves on NC and Virginia Tech then UC can expect an invite, to the new Big East.

    I like this hire.

    Doeren is a defensive-minded coach who also features an exciting offense. He'll do well with ACC caliber talent and, believe it or not, there is a lot of talent in the NC/SC area.

    Thanks for the info. I am a NC State fan. I am hoping he works out well. Hopefully he gets to coach NC State's bowl game.

    Latest news is that Rutgers is sueing the Big East to get out of the 27 month wait period to join Big 10 in 2014.
