    This is such a stupid situation. I'm tired of it.

    Re: College Football Realignment

    I'm glad to see that the Bearcats are making a push to go to the ACC. I think that'd be a great fit

    In making its case to the ACC, Cincinnati used a combination of athletic and academic qualifications, including how well its football and men's basketball teams have done as well as the size of its endowment and place in national rankings of top universities.
    Can anyone tell me what academic qualifications have to do with a conference? How are the libraries or science depts linked in any way after joining a conference? I've never understood that

    The ACC prefers UC to UL?

    So the conference can keep up the charade that they're serving some sort of higher purpose rather than simply trying to maximize revenue? It's a total farce but if it's the card that gets UC out of the Big East so be it.

    I wonder how many of these teams will actually end up in the BE, already rumors that San Diego State, Boise and Navy are rethinking the move.

    I keep waiting for the bball schools to do something and merge with a selection of schools like Dayton, George Mason, etc and go back to what its core has always been big time basketball and just stop sponsering football at the d1 level.

    Word is that UConn and Louisville both don't have the votes in the ACC. The academic bluebloods are balking at Louisville's rankings, the on-field performance schools are holding out for a better program than UConn.

    Twitter just blew up with reports that Louisville is one vote short of an ACC bid. I'm not sure how close uconn is but it will likely get done for Louisville if this is true.

    It's more hot air than anything, but the B1G Ten has tried to build it's brand around similar universities. Everyone(except Northwestern) is a large research university and the various institutions do collaborate on some things. I remember the libraries had a joint borrowing program when I was there.

    As far as I have heard, the "cultural fit" seems to matter most in the B1G Ten, next in the Pac-10, then the ACC and Big East at least pay lip service to it, and the SEC and Big 12 don't seem to care a whole lot.
    When people say that I donít know what Iím talking about when it comes to sports or writing, I think: Man, you should see me in the rest of my life.
