I didn't think we'd ever need this one.  Kudos, Maryland.

Conference realignment is getting bat guano crazy. It was crazy before because of the kooks running wild. Now it is crazy because the college presidents don't know what they want in the end.

Here is the Berry Tramel blog from the previous thread.  I think he gives a nice overall summary.

The two guys I really like to read are him and David Teel (Hampton paper and connections to UVA and VT).

Seems to me the majority of presidents just want more money for their schools, makes me wonder why it took so long to get a playoff to begin with.

And just a quick off topic question for you guys:

When I read articles and hear discussion, everyone calls us Pittsburgh.   To me, that doesn't register as to me, it is Pitt.  I know Pederson in the late 90s/early 00s went on the "Pittsburgh" campaign and it didn't sit well with the fanbase at all.

The question is, do you view us as "Pitt" or "Pittsburgh".

I won the closeout!

It surprises me that president's over billion dollar enterprises are worried over rounding errors in their budgets. Sports are one of the biggest front faces for the universities. I'm wondering how these changes for tv dollars affect ticket sales and donations (a majority of the money in the past!)

BTW in on the new thread!

In like Our Man Flynn.

This is my favorite thread title thus far. So elegant in its simplicity yet powerful in (predictive???) message.

I'll have the turtle soup!

Hail to PITT!
