It showed us what many suspected. The B1G wasn't biding it's time or ramping up to a big play in the future. They were being out smarted by everyone else, specifically Slive. The SECN will shatter what people thought was possible with conference networks.

Thats the thing. I don't think those concepts are exclusive. Product, product, product. Quality of product trumps all else.

Almost missed this with the 5 pages of BS. Smarty's quote to the rescue.

AP #4 and our SOS (1 top 25 win with a 2nd one coming Saturday) means Bama would still be ahead of us. Our receivers and safeties suck, no LBs and Howard takes plays off and gets beat on double moves like clock work. Luckily, we are extremely young (SO class mostly) everywhere but the dline so this success will continue for the next couple years letting Urban work with our skill players and recruit where it needs it. Obviously anyone would prefer the NC over the Gator bowl if nothing else but from a financial standpoint (which I said was the worst decision of 2011) but it is what it is and going into next year undefeated will be needed with how ****ty our conference is going to do in the bowl games.

Bigger TV market. Also makes it easier for Michigan to keep dodging the good teams in the other division.

Penn State and ACC expansion were a problem. The BIG was expanding West and left PSU, which is a huge market by itself, to the highest bidder unless our commissioner did something to draw in Eastern schools.

Rutgers and Maryland aren't great by any means, but it locks up Jersey, Eastern PA, and parts of NY media markets.

Thats just it. It wasn't an action but a reaction. B1G is trying to cut losses and save face, not pioneer or break ground. Not a good place to be.

Like I said, I'm not crazy about it; those schools suck balls, and add very little value in quality.

It will however draw in millions of viewers, protect PSU, while we continue to look to get to 16 schools, which I think is the end goal.

Notre Dame to B1G would be epic; hopefully it happens in the next 2 years. EVERYONE here wants it to happen.

Those are definitely an improvement from the god awful Ronald McDonald uniforms. I still don't like the red/yellow combo though. **** their state flag.

Do people in NY actually want to watch Rutgers football though? I don't want to watch BC get pasted for the 10th straight week just because they are in my market. I'd much rather watch a competitive game with two good teams.

Isn't Rutgers good this year?? They're competitive and will be a good mid tier school; will be interesting to see how they compete against the BIG.

Maryland however is a dumpster fire.

i guess if there were 2 teams i actually sort of like in the SEC they would be SCAR since one of my best friends went to clemson and i love his tears or bama. UGA too because bulldogs rule.






those maryland jerseys are ****ing awesome. i am suddenly OK with them joining the BIG

yea that is so good. they have a few other ones from this year and the recent past that are amazing but the video game one is the GOAT.



also, those OSU jerseys are way different. they are sort of throw backs with the giant numbers but it is supposed to commemorate the 2002 national championship team. most of the 2002 team will be there including tress and clarett. check the helmets out, they are unique to say the least
