    I saw that last night and sent it to my Hoo friend just for kicks. On the good word of The Dude, we both have our bags packed (tic).

    In fairness to him, he says that the ACC GoR is solid. But he thinks Texas is heading to the B1G in one way or another, which is obviously bad for WVU.

    He could be right about Texas.

    Seems simple to me, get all member schools to agree to an amendment of the Big12 GoR, then you can change it. Else things look to be on the hook until the GoR expires.

    Assuming the Big12 GoR looks like all the other GoRs. Then you just get all the schools covered by related GoRs to agree to change the landscape, and the landscape gets changed.

    Or have I missed something?

    Now if something like this happens, then we'll know that the Big Ten is thinking more like a TV network than an athletic conference. This would only be to get the BTN into the state of New York's cable subscribers.

    I would go back to saying that the ACC would need Temple for the same reason in the Mid-Atlantic regarding an ACC network.

    The Dude: Clemson & FSU to the Big 12, UNC & UVa to the B1G and now Texas and Oklahoma to the B1G. What next?

    PS I know I missed UVa and VT to the B1G too, but I think you get the point.

    So what's next for the ACC?

    Standing pat, adding, ND as full member?

    If they add Buffalo, it shows you what a fraud the whole BTN and cable-satellite matrix is. I can't imagine many people in NY state give a rip about UB (man, I even forgot what their nickname is). But even non-football fans in the Empire State will be forced to pay up. Meanwhile B1G lovers elsewhere have to accept a watered down product. Taking University of Toronto would have more credibility.

    The rumor mill right now is unbelievable. On one end of the B1G expansion target spectrum is Texas...and now Buffalo on the other? I can't keep up!

    Buffalo? Really? I didn't think the cannabis growing in West Virginia was that potent.

    Or maybe the cannabis is growing in the courtyard at the B1G office
