another Izzo assistant in the conference
I'm not saying the B10 does not want ND, but they are less incrementally valuable to us now that we are at 14 than they were when we were at 11. ND would have brought much of the same Northeastern markets RU and MD are expected to bring and would have allowed us to add a CCG game the way Nebraska did. But now that we have added those three schools, ND's incremental value to the B10 is less. And if ND waits until we go to 16 by adding UVA and UNC (or whichever remaining ACC teams you assume), ND's incremental value to the B10 will drop further. At this point, they probably are more valuable to the B12 or P12 than they are to the B10 or SEC. In fact, my guess is that ND ends up in the P12 when all the dust finally settles.

I doubt it goes over 16 teams, and ADs will never vote on 9 game conference schedules.
It's an issue, but at some point the TV money makes up for the extra home game you have to give up every two years. And they might be pushed to nine conference games just being at 16. I don't think they want to go to nine, but it's getting harder and harder to stay at eight.

ND beats Bama or Georgia, they won't need anybody. I frankly am shocked at the ND lids and hoodies I'm seeing in the D and southeast Michigan on kids and adults. That happened fast.
ND doesn't need anyone now. They have fallen behind a handful of top programs in revenues, but that ebbs and flows and they should jump back up into the top group with their next TV contract. IMO that is why Delany has decided to move on without them. Delany is expanding the B10 footprint based on the assumption the B10 will never get ND. The SEC is doing the same. Only the ACC and B12 are sitting around right now thinking it's only a matter of time before the land the Irish. Amateurs.
Go Kent State!!
Would be funny to watch Kent State open up a can on FSU in the Orange Bowl.
Go Kent State. Woohoo!!
Serious question: do you think MSU would have won the MAC this year?
I have my doubts.
UM VS ATM sounding like a lock in the Cap One now. This will be my first time ever rooting for UM. Any tips?

Would be funny to see florida, oregon, or oklahoma told to stay home because a bowl has to take Kent State instead
i'm maybe 80% sure that they would win the MAC, but it's very sad that i'm not 100% sure.
Hold your nose. Btw, I bet when the game starts you can't do it. Just watch. I've only been semi-able to do it when they play ND. If they had to win to help us maybe. Then I just wouldn't watch the game.
If wisconsin wins, UM can't be in the Cap One bowl. TAMU is pretty much locked in though
Syracuse at Arkansas tonight at 7:30 on ESPN. Sold out Bud Walton Arena (20,000). Michigan fans remember that place. I bet Syracuse and Michigan demolish the Hogs. Oh well... still gonna watch the game in 15 minutes.

I really hate ATM.
Nice Pig rooting for you, but this is an eastern time zone thread.
That kind of year.
Huh? Michigan is CST... right?
Didn't know that

Furthest western state in the eastern time zone. On lake Michigan in late June the western sky is often still blew at 10:30 pm.
When max bullough's grandpa Hank started coaching in Buffalo years ago it was a lot darker at 8pm there in august then it usually is in Michigan at 8 pm. The buffalo reporters quoted him as saying "man it gets late early out here."
Georgetown defeats Tennessee 37-36. Wisconsin thinks they ran to much.
Edit: didn't mean to quote.

Haha. A co worker who doesn't like sports has his dad coming into town tonight. Dad likes sports. He asked me what to watch. I told him for the love of god don't watch the Georgetown Tennessee game. Pac-12 champ game would probably be his best bet. So far, I'm right.
Prepare to be disappointed.
