So far everything Ive commented on in the realm of conference expansion has been make believe. Just day dreams. I did a little reading tho & wanted to go thru what is reality & most importantly, why? Ill be going thru all remaining P5 confs to shed light on their situation. #CFB
First, lets take a look at the #ACC. You can ignore anything you read regarding #NotreDame or any of the the #ACC schools leaving. Just keep right on scrolling, bc it isn’t happening. Why not? The #ACC has a grant of rights agreement which extends until 2036. (continued)
No school is going to be putting their TV revenue on the line for the next 15 yrs. Just wont happen. By the end of this grant of rights agreement tho, the #ACC will be making nearly half of what the #BigTen & #SEC will be in TV revenue (only $34 Million per team in ’19). (cont)

My thoughts on #Big12, #IowaState, and the other institutions. The most likely scenario for the remaining schools is a merger with #AAC or #MWC or a combination of the two. Which isn’t ideal for the remaining schools because tv revenue would be way down… your annual payout would
be maybe $15MM? Compare that to the $34MM the #Big12 paid out last year. And if you’re confident that #IowaState goes to the #BigTen, I wouldn’t be. Not to say they won’t but if the Big10 is in a race against the #SEC you can’t counter by adding Iowa State or Kansas. You have to
ensure your premier schools #OhioState and #Michigan are happy and they only shot you have at that is striking a deal with the #Pac12 or some of the #Pac12 schools. And if I was #Fox I would PUSH for this. Why? Because #EPSN is the biggest benefactor here, right now.

Oh did you want a long early morning rant #thread? Yes? No? Too late, here it is. Let’s talk about how the insistence on returning to college football not only a reflection of racism & capitalism, but also the deep failures of patriarchal culture. Ready? Let’s go.
Ok so yesterday I talked a bit about racism & capitalism in the organized sport industry particularly football. Here’s that thread. Note: I’m sure there are scholars who have written about this, this is just my Black feminist quick take.
So football relies heavily on the athletic performance of Black men for the entertainment & profit of predominantly white men. In the NFL when players protest, they’re told to shut up & play or that they make enough money so they shouldn’t care (racist capitalist perspective).
