NBR: More Conference Re-Alignment?
Just got an update on my phone from ESPN that Rutgers and Maryland are looking to join the Big 10...

This is getting ridiculous because this will start a whole new frenzy.

The BE simply is not going to be as strong as folks think.

Rutgers, Louisville, Cincinnati are all hoping for invites to get out of the BE.

I will be very surprised if the BE gets a good TV deal because that league is in such an unsteady state right now.

Rutgers! What the heck have they done lately, or ever?

The Big East - the league nobody wants to be in.

At this point, it is sounding pretty likely that both Maryland and Rutgers will in fact go to the Big Ten. It is likely that in that scenario, the ACC will make a play for UConn or potentially even Louisville to replace Maryland.

Some are concerned this recent development with Maryland and Rutgers could even trigger the Big XII to take another strong look at Louisville.

They're decent in basketball and football, but more importantly, folks want a piece of the NY/NJ TV market.

"What Saturday's news told me is that the Big East is done, kaput. If Rutgers leaves, then UConn will head to the ACC. That's right in the middle of Big East TV negotiations that will decide how close the league to Conference USA in terms of TV worth. The football? It better hope Boise keeps winning because the Broncos are the lynchpin of the reconstituted league.

And if this is truly the age of the superconference, then the Big East won't be the only conference eaten alive. If Delany pulls this off, then the repercussions are potentially huge. Notre Dame suddenly has an ACC scheduling agreement that is diminished. Does the Big 12 have to think of going beyond 10?"

Really? Dude you'd give up your left one if UAB were to get an invite. SMDH.
