3rd Quarter: aTm 44, UCLA 10

!?!?!?

You were busy with another game, but with a minute to play in the 2nd quarter and the ball on UCLA's side of the field and holding a 38-10 lead Sumlin ran the clock out instead of trying to pick up 15 yards and kick a field goal.

In the 3rd quarter following a break and a good drive that took the Aggies to the 10 yard line of UCLA they attempted 3 passes instead of sticking to the ground game and kicked for 3. Another time they were stopped with a 4th and a little less than two yards and a chance to put the game away and instead kicked for 3. They never scored again.

All through the 3rd and 4th quarters the Aggies who had rushed the ball well for most of the night continued to toss incomplete passes instead of running clock. I started calculating this in the third quarter and just in that quarter alone the failed to shave 5 minutes off the clock. The 4th quarter was even worse. BTW the UCLA scored the winning points with 47 seconds left on the clock. Just saying!

I see that UCLA score 2 TDs in the last 3:10, so if aTm just runs 5 mins off the clock w/o scoring they win by 13... that's some boneheaded clock management!

Auburn gets 11 million a year for under armor. Louisville is just catching up to what SEC schools already do.

There's no reason for Missouri to leave, none.

But they will.

Mizzou administration might want to leave but I doubt the fans and athletics department share the same POV. The SEC isn't forcing them out either. So unless ESPN guarantees no money loss for the SEC and pays the B1G enough to ensure Mizzou gets full payments upon entry there just isn't enough justification to move

If Arkansas can't beat 'em this year, Bert is just cursed.

Kansas and Notre Dame head to the Big 10. Why? If we are moving to a P4 and N.D. has to join all in somewhere, they will go for the cash. That's what church schools do. That gives Delany his football brand, control over his city markets in the Northwest and Northeast and make the Yankees very damned happy!

Oklahoma and Oklahoma State join the SEC. Texas, Texas Tech, and T.C.U. join the ACC out right and everybody is happy. The ACC and ESPN let the Irish out of their contract and voila. ESPN owns Texas and Oklahoma outright the same way they own the rest of the SEC and ACC. There's your happy ending. BTW: Texas all in is far more valuable to the ACC (and your regional rights money from Tech & T.C.U. giving you triple dip into Texas) than any darned arrangement for 5 games with a has been private.

Your idea leaves the ACC at 17, assuming ND leaves, which I don't think happens. Unless you take out 1 you'd have to add one to even it out. I'm intrigued by the idea of a Texas pod for the ACC. However, I think if we go with a 4th Texas school I would look to SMU instead of Baylor or Houston. UH gives them another market but they wouldn't penetrate it as much as the SEC with TAMU. Why not just grab as much of the DFW market as possible and bring the Iron Skillet to the ACC?

Or

UT, SMU, WVU and TCU

Houston is a better option but I like the idea of where you're going with this. I believe the TCU/Houston combo will be a great pair somewhere.

SMU's budget is so small though. That and their fan base is minuscule. You'd basically be recruiting another Wake Forest.

Texas may be down, but they are still the top draw in a state with a population of about 28 million people. Yes, I would say there is still a desire for the ACC, SEC, B1G or the PAC to add Texas.

The interesting thing about S.M.U. is that the athletic department has an endowment of over $1 Billion.

Yes. And any of those conferences would take a buddy to get them all in.
