Super conference cluster ****
http://www.leatherhelmetblog.com/2012-ar...d-fsu.html

The Big 12 conference will put its expansion plans on hiatus while Clemson and FSU decide to apply for membership or stay with the ACC.

Talks between the two schools and the Big 12 began late last fall and continued after the completion of the 2011 season. Recently both schools have formed committees to examine the advantages and disadvantages of leaving the ACC for the Big 12 and expect to reach a decision by late summer.

Chief among their concerns are travel costs and the prospect of increased revenues resulting from Big 12 membership. Clemson and FSU officials have told the Big 12 that the projected increase of ACC revenues resulting from the addition of Pittsburgh and Syracuse falls short of what Big 12 teams currently receive.

Reportedly Big 12 members receive just over $17 million per team in annual TV rights while the ACC projects TV revenues will increase to $16 per team after Pittsburgh and Syracuse join the conference.

The Big 12 provided Clemson and FSU financial projections with estimates of each member’s share of annual revenues in excess of $35 million per team – more than double ACC projections -- after the tier 1 TV contract is reworked.

The increase in revenues would allow Clemson and FSU to keep up with the spending by their SEC neighbors and in-state rivals.

Rumored invitations to Louisville and BYU are on hold until Clemson and FSU decide to apply for membership or not.

RE: Super conference cluster ****
cluster **** does describe anything associated with the Big 12 (or Big East for that matter)

Also, I'm pretty sure cluster **** is among the names under consideration for the MWC/CUSA merger if that still happens.

Cluster **** would still be better than leaders & legends.

RE: Super conference cluster ****
Every time the conferences start this up I think of the beginning of BASEketball.

"The Minnesota Lakers moved to LA where there are no lakes, the Jazz moved to Utah where they've outlawed music, the Raiders moved from Oakland to LA and then back to Oakland and no one noticed..."

All in the name of money...

I've gotta think it's just pure stubbornness keeping that crap in place. I haven't heard one single person (with the possible exception of Jim Delany's mom) who thinks those names were a good idea.

They announced last week (I think) that they were keeping the names and provided data saying that people didn't have issues with the names and actually liked them. I call BS, but they're not going to change them, so they are what they are. Doesn't really bother me anymore, I guess. I'm just used to them now, even if they're stupid.

They used the same focus groups that athletics used to determine that NIU fans didn't mind tailgating with opposing fans at Soldier Field.
