    Probably will be some sort of NFL-esque playoff system. Can’t see them going back to BCS style. Leaves money on the table. But yeah, this is the beginning of the end of the NCAA as we know it.

    I figure 4 pods in each conference. Winner of those pods play in a 4 game playoff and winner of each playoff plays for the title against the other playoff winner. Basically an 8 team playoff.

    I would be willing to wager that Miami, FSU, Clemson, and Tech have made calls to Birmingham and/or Indy today.

    Pac 12 is done.

    No, a breakaway by the current Power 5 power programs

    I just don’t see how the PAC 12 and Big 12 survive the poaching. You can’t just add Memphis or UAB or Nevada and remain a power 5 conference. I think the ACC is eventually absorbed by the Big Ten and SEC.

    ACC is going to make a run at Notre Dame. It's their only and last move.

    Seems like ND would make more sense with the Big 10/16 if the offer is there. Half their games are played against them anyways.

    I definitely think that is where they belong but if the ACC gives them everything they want plus a weak conference to be apart of they may go for it. Notre Dame is out for Notre Dame, they want money and the easiest path to a championship.

    if ND walks from teh ACC it's a $140 mil breakup fee. any other acc team leaving is going to be even higher. they stupidly signed away their rights for a decade

    I thought that temporary arrangement had ended?

    I think the big 10 would take them with that

    I'm ready for someone to take this to court. Some believe this isn't an actual contract.
