    More Realignment Info Leaking Out

    Attached is YouTube files to introduce the updated corporate evolution of college football. Fox is spearheading an assault on ABC/ESPN to acquire more strategic footprints in the football world. Generally, I do not introduce long content but I will break with that policy to introduce what I think will be the final end game of the powers that be. Consider the former SEC as the Disney/ESPN Super-conference IE the AFC. Consider the former BIG10 as the Fox group Super-conference IE the NFC while observing the following content. Fox is going to look west for cherished time slot domination to out produce commercial domination of Disney/ESPN. Once the money is exchanged, the former SEC and former BIG10 will be indentured to their monetary overlords.

    SEC Alignment

    SEC West Division
    Texas
    Tex A&M
    Oklahoma
    Missouri
    Arkansas

    SEC North Division
    Tenn
    Vandy
    North Carolina
    Kentucky
    Auburn

    SEC South Division
    Alabama
    LSU
    Miss St
    FSU
    Ole Miss

    SEC East Division
    Miami
    Florida
    Clemson
    Georgia
    South Carolina

    Each team plays 4 Division Games
    Each team maintains its traditional rival game for the 5th game
    Each team plays a round robin schedule so the SEC South will play complete blocks of Divisions to cover games 6 thru 10
    Game 11 will be determined by the SEC standings ie 1st best plays 20th, 2nd plays 19th, 3rd plays 18th etc.
    Game 12 will be in housed schedule against a BIG opponent.
    A second rival team will have to be assigned in case the traditional rival is in the round robin block of 5 games.
    The division winners go into a play-off
    Winner plays the BIG Winner
    Non winners hope to get into the new NIT which will be another 8 team play-off running concurrent with P2 Championship SEC vs BIG
    Expect Vanderbilt and Rutgers to be relegated which will make the SEC North tougher
    Vanderbilt replacements possibilities (1) NC State (2) Louisville (3) OK State (4) TCU (5) Baylor

    BIG Alignment

    BIG West Division
    USC
    UCLA
    Stanford
    Washington
    Oregon

    BIG North Division
    Minnesota
    Wisconsin
    Illinois
    NWestern
    Iowa

    BIG South Division
    Ohio State
    Michigan
    Michigan State
    Maryland
    Nebraska

    BIG East Division
    Rutgers
    Penn State
    Notre Dame
    Indiana
    Purdue

    Each team plays 4 Division Games
    Each team maintains its traditional rival game for the 5th game
    Each team plays a round robin schedule so the BIG South will play complete blocks of Divisions to cover games 6 thru 10
    Game 11 will be determined by the BIG standings ie 1st best plays 20th, 2nd plays 19th, 3rd plays 18th etc.
    Game 12 will be in housed schedule against a SEC opponent.
    A second rival team will have to be assigned in case the traditional rival is in the round robin block of 5 games.
    The division winners go into a play-off
    Winner plays the SEC Winner
    Non Division winners hope to get into the new NIT which will be another 8 team play-off running concurrent with P2 Championship SEC vs BIG
    Expect Vanderbilt and Rutgers to be relegated which will make the BIG East tougher
    Rutgers replacement possibilities (1) Boston College (2) NC State (3) Louisville (4) Iowa St (5) Virginia Tec

    The monetary overlords will lock down the other conferences as non P2 entities as lesser conferences and promote quality teams to the P2 as they relegate lesser performers out of the P2

    I don’t see them putting Florida State in our division and leaving the other Florida schools in the same division.

    Bad info from the jump

    Who is "THEM"? "THEM" is Disney/ESPN after the SEC signs on the dotted line in the contract. Simply a money transaction where the New Yorkers give money down South and the receivers of money do as they are directed. We will be relegated to being monetary indentured servants to the "DOLLAR". BTW I hate this happening!

    I'm waiting on Bert Stare to give us the real info!! They will not break up BAMA and Aubbie. They might move us or OM to the north which I wouldn't mind.

    "THEY" are fu__ing New Yorkers with their transmission campus in Connecticut. Bama and Aubie mean a lot to us but not to them? Bama and Auburn could just be established as rival games outside of their division?

    Don't believe that does us any favors but SEC is going to be tough no matter how they divide it.

    I think it will have to go to 24 and 24 because I don’t see how these teams could be left out of a 16/16 league. Clemson, Oregon, Notre Dame, FSU, Miami, UNC, Virginia, Baylor, Washington, Utah, Stanford, VA Tech for football and then Arizona, Duke, Kansas and Louisville because of hoops. I think these teams all ultimately need to be in a major conference because they bring too much value in either football or basketball

    Move Alabama to the north and Auburn south. Auburn will complain but deep down feel relief. Alabama gets Tennessee. Play four teams in your division then two in the other divisions. Add either ooc games, permanent cross game, or ten games then have playoffs. They need to structure the deal so money goes to bdc or somewhere a school affiliate can pay players with the money to keep the talent level at the top for the league

    Your thread title makes it sound like you're relaying actual info that leaked, but most of your post is just a bunch of ideas and theories.

    Also, the SEC holds the leverage, not the networks. You make it sounds like the SEC has to change a bunch of stuff they wouldn't want to change like Alabama and Auburn playing in the same division. And NC isn't joining the SEC. And what the heck even is that SEC North Division? Looks like an Auburn fan came up with that.

    The future is going to be different and I won't be surprised if FSU and Clemson are in the SEC at some point, but so much of this is so far down the road because of the current ACC contract with ESPN. The SEC is going to be at 16 for a while... Unless Notre Dame decided they wanted to join.

    Looks like you just ran with something.

    That isn’t going to happen.

    Stankey will have final say over everything.

    Don't see Vandy being "relegated". The Have-nots realize if they let this happen to Vandy, it could happen to them.

    While the post puts out an interesting future- I also think the SEC and Big10 has alot more say. Its not going to turn out better for us- we are 2nd tier football. But being in the SEC has its privileges and we will end up ok. We are used to playing a tough schedule.

    The NEW name of the game will be market shares. The networks need the larger metropolitan areas watching their product to profit from their investments. Based on this concept, the SEC cannot loose the Charlotte, NC area to the BIG10 because it will be a cash cow in the future. The SEC cannot loose the Dallas/Ft. Worth area either. Is ESPN going to commit monetary suicide and not lock down Miami?

    The SEC will get ESPN money only, while the BIG is lining up Fox, CBS, and NBC money. Again, once the money is disbursed, there will be an employee / employer relationship like in any business. This is a logical thought process considering this is nothing but business and not sports as we know it now.

    NBC has declared itself in the mix so how is Notre Dame not going in with its partner? NBC is indicating premium viewership in college football just like they are doing with the premium NFL time slots. I posted links that are leading to the narrative in this post that radical change is on the horizon. Yesterday’s thought processes may not apply tomorrow.

    If you’re speaking of TV revenue shares but are leaving out Amazon then I don’t know what to tell you.

    They are starting with the NFL this season and if it goes well, they will be in the picture for College sooner rather than later.

    Got to switch FSU to the east. Put Auburn in the south, and put SCar in the north. Done.

    There has been an employer/employee relationship since they started moving games all over the day for tv and to different nights of the week. TV says jump. The school ask how high. Those ridiculous Thursday night games that make it difficult to attend and hurt the towns.

    As far as the name sec and divisional break downs and alignments. Tv doesn't care about rivalries. Tv cares if Alabama v auburn or Oklahoma or Tennessee or Texas brings the best ratings. They'll make divisions and align teams to create match ups and maximize tv ratings.

    Tv runs college football and will only continue to control college football more so. The schools wont push back, only saying give me more more more money daddy.
