    • Current rumors:

      Big XII -
      Arizona seems to be mentioned in everywhere, so if there's one more school to add it appears to be them.
      Arizona State is also getting their name thrown around now as well for the Big XII, and the Board of Regents for Arizona (covering both UA and ASU) has been meeting more than once this week, including in executive sessions.
      Last week Utah had apparently cooled on a Big XII move, but now their name is being thrown in the ring again. At this point, given the current proposed media deal appears to be mainly streaming on Apple, they may have reconsidered since the last meeting with the commissioner.

      Big Ten -
      Oregon and Washington rumors to the Big Ten began heating up again today. If the Big Ten is going to add anyone, they appear to be at the front of the line.
      Stanford and Cal are also being thrown in as favorites if the Big Ten decides to go to 20. Apparently the schools want them, but the media partners would rather just keep it to UO and UW.

      And that just leaves the two States. Oregon State doesn't have the branding of Oregon and is missing a billionaire benefactor who founded a major athletic company (funny enough the Big Ten has the other one in Maryland). Washington State is just... well I can't think of a school in a worse position for their conference to be collapsing. No sustained success, small stadium, remote town. If Gonazaga had football, even as an FCS, they'd be in a better position. Heck, even without it they've been rumored in the past for the Big XII.

        In terms of Cal and Stanford, the media partners pales in comparison they bring to the research table. By an order of magnitude. The schools will win that battle.

        • Oregon would be the largest departure from the oldest and most important qualifications for big ten membership maybe in the history of the conference

            I thought that was AAU membership, which they have. What's the other?

              That's the absolute bare minimum. It basically was a question of "What do you bring to the CIC?" Which is why Chicago was still a pseudo-member decades after they dumped sports.

              Essentially if you aren't bringing in a net gain to the Big Ten Academic Alliance, don't even ask.

                    And then two Big Ten members voted them out of it.

                      Because they lost the medical center as part of the rankings.

                        Right, but the vote happened within a year of Nebraska being admitted, and had been a possibility for a decade.

                        Oregon has AAU status, and that seems to be enough. If it was purely dollars based Washington and Stanford would’ve hitched a ride with USC and UCLA.

                        Regardless, this appears to be moving towards turbo speed. Reported that the Arizona regents will vote tonight and the Big XII could accept them as soon as tomorrow.

                        I could easily see UO, UW, and Stanford accepted while the Big Ten tries one more time to get ND to join, since they’d have almost all of their rivals in conference.

                        • Seeing a headline that FSU is considering moving from the ACC due to payment distributions. To the SEC?

                            Jesus Christ, just accept already. I get the whole Above It All, shtick, really I do, but we belong in a conference with USC and Michigan. That is the only thing that would make the appalling greed CFB since the 1980s finally deliver a pony under all the sh-t.

                              Not a huge ND fan, but other than Navy, are there long term rivals that are not among the new B1G?

                                Our rivals ranked are:

                                1. Navy
                                2. USC
                                3. Purdue
                                4. Michigan

                                Then there have been strong period rivalries (Army, Michigan State, Miami, BC, Stanford) but none have persisted across a timeframe that makes any difference to Notre Dame.

                                I have understood our desire to remain Independent, but I'm afraid this is it. And assuming the question becomes not whether to join a conference but which to join, USC going to the Big Ten ended that. The ACC is a joke. We have only one potential conference home.
