We should. And to be frank, we have to.

Simple solution. Not to be an ass, but don't open it if you're not interested

947+ replies on the other thread. Information has become too mixed, IMO. 

How is having everything about the same topic in 1 place not better? This way fragments the same conversation across various threads. It's redundant *and inefficient.

Why does every headline need a new thread?

 

Sorry. Not keeping up with every post in that mega thread. It's that simple as to why a separate thread title.

Dump it in the mega thread and say what you want.  You don't have to read anything else.  If it was already posted and talked about , let the other dogs fight amongst themselves.  Not your problem and no one will come at ya about where you posted it.

I don't know if its true, but just heard on radio 1310 Sports that the PAC 12 is due $65 million for its share of NCAA basketball money. They also said that you must be a member of the PAC 12 to get a share and that those who left get nothing. That leaves the PAC 2 due $65million, BUT they must be a viable conference to collect otherwise they get nothing. To be a viable conference you need 6 members within the next two years and/or a plan to gain up 6 members in 2 years. The MWC buyout drops back to $17 million in 2025 and I'm not sure what the AAC's is. The PAC 2 could use the $65million to help offset conference buyouts but that would leave them in a small conference with no media contract. Since the MWC buyout is still cost prohibitive at $17 millionin 2025  the PAC 2 could poach 6 AAC schools, kicking in up to $10 million per program to help with the buyout. That gives them 8 programs in a G5 PAC 8 conference with no media contract. Interesting times.

It won't happen.  The P2 needs games for 2024 and can't wait till 2025 to get new members.  Plus the Pac overall has a $50m debt they owe a cable company plus two additional law suits.   It costs lots of $$ to hire conference staff and they have no media contracts beyond 2023.
