    I read this Dennis Dodd article today: http://www.cbssports.com/collegefoot...onference-no-6

    It has a few interesting tidbits about UC:

    • The intentions of Cincinnati, Connecticut, the ACC and possibly more. So far, the two schools have not been thrown lifelines to BCS leagues, but are on record as being willing to jump. Cincinnati has a surprising amount of juice at this point. It has been to a BCS bowl. It draws surprisingly good TV ratings in basketball. Call it the best player left on the board.

    "Cincinnati is more valuable than what is being let on," an industry source said.

    Per Bret McMurphy, UC will have a press conference tomorrow afternoon to reveal plans and concept drawings for an expanded Nippert Stadium.

    Cool, can't wait to see the renderings.
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    Media deal OK'd to solidify ACC

    PASADENA, Calif. -- The Atlantic Coast Conference presidents approved Monday a grant of media rights for the league through 2026-27, effectively halting the exodus of any schools to other conferences.

    The move solidifies the future of the ACC, which had several teams that had been speculated as targets of the Big Ten.

    The ACC's grant of rights makes it untenable financially for a school to leave, guaranteeing in the 14 years of the deal that a school's media rights, including revenue, for all home games would remain with the ACC regardless of the school's affiliation.



    "This announcement further highlights the continued solidarity and commitment by our member institutions," ACC commissioner John Swofford said in a statement. "The Council of Presidents has shown tremendous leadership in insuring the ACC is extremely well positioned with unlimited potential."

    The scorecard:

    Happy -- John Swofford... ACC presidents... Notre Dame, Louisville, Pittsburgh and Syracuse... basketball-first people... fans of most ACC schools... everyone tired of hearing about conference realignment.

    Disappointed -- Jim Delany (if the B1G really had designs on certain ACC schools as rumored)... UConn and Cincinnati... some NC State and Virginia Tech fans who hoped this whole mess would land them in the SEC... the Florida State fans who have never liked the ACC.
    Not all who wander are lost

    It goes into effect in 2014, which means if the Big 12, B1G, or SEC wants to get a deal done, it has to do so before then.

    It can still happen, but I have my doubts.

    If those schools wanted out or thought they might have a shot elsewhere they would not have signed this deal.

    UC gets screwed now but they can probably win the Big East/whatever every year from now on.

    Re: College Football Realignment

    I largely agree that the GOR is a big barrier to further expansion; however, I sincerely believe that the 5 conferences will not stay at 10/12/14/14/15. Those are just weird numbers for conferences that are on relatively equal footing.

    The money, exposure and bowl-access disparity between the power conferences and the non-power will relegate UC to MAC-level recruits almost immediately.

    They'll lose any dominance over their new conference as soon as the current crop of recruits departs, IMO.

    If they can be aggressive in their OOC scheduling they could pull off what Boise has, kings of a crap conference with a few big games a year.

    I really cannot believe that schools like FSU and Clemson are linking themselves to the fifth best conference when they know what their direct competitors are going to be able to make in B1G, SEC, and to a lesser extent Big 12 and PAC. They have already (arguably) sold everything they've got and are scheduled to make at least 7-8 mil less than Big 12 (and that doesn't even include Big 12 Tier 3, which is an additional revenue stream). They are pretty much locking themselves in to a ship made of deadwood that is barely sea worthy.

    I think this ensures a 3x20 future, as SEC will CRUSH anything an "ACC network" will produce, B1G is pretty much locked in unopposed in the midwest, and PAC is completely unopposed from Colorado west. By the time these GoR (both the Big 12 and ACC) run out those networks will be fully implemented and running at peak effectiveness. ACC and Big 12 will not be able to compete.

    I personally expect (hope):
    Texas, Oklahoma, and little brothers head west (KSU and Baylor also?).
    WVU, TCU, Va Tech, UNC (or State) to SEC.
    UVa, UNC (or Someone like Mizzou), Duke, Kansas, and others to B1G.
    The scraps bind together to try and be a "best of the rest" conference. I don't see Big 12 or ACC being left in tact one or the other name will go on but it will look like the red headed step child with a mix-match of teams that don't really fit any of the big 3.

    Exactly. The notion that UC is somehow going to drop off a cliff in recruiting with guys like TT, Eddie Gran, and Robert Prunty is just looney. The notion that they can't regularly win a conference with the likes of USF, ECU, and Houston is equally as looney.
