RE: Report: B1G could add Maryland, Rutgers
I want to wait before going on gloom and doom. UC is good enough to make it through this mess but a stable Big East would help. The only conference that would work for Cincinnati outside the Big East is the ACC but I doubt that is on the agenda because UConn would be the logical pick to replace Maryland. If Clemson or Florida State pack up and leave then when who knows what happens.

We are about to see a massive conference scramble, there is almost NO WAY this ends with just Marlyand and Rutgers moving around...

It sounds like the ACC is going to lose at least two teams, and so may the Big East...

The only question is: who does the ACC want to replace Maryland/Florida State and whoever...

If the ACC wants UC, I will be very happy.

The ACC does not want UC. They will take UConn first and then USF and UofL.

TV just hates UC for whatever reason. UC is just ugly. Someone in marketing needs to get their head out of the sand. It could end up being the total downfall of the athletic department. No on court or on field performance matters anymore.

Probably, but let a man hope.

If this conference scramble gets as intense as I think it's going to be (i.e. the whole "Super Conferences" thing happens), I don't think the ACC will care too much about the region anymore. UC may not be on the East Coast, but it's fairly close. It's not like traveling to the other ACC schools is a long haul from Cincy.

It may not be very likely, but it's not completely out of the question.

We need to pray hard for UT and OU to go to the Pac12 or FSU, Clemson to bolt to the SEC Otherwise we are SCREWED.

I have to think it is due to ratings. ESPN/ABC/FOX can hate UC all they want for whatever arbitrary reasons, but the fact is if our ratings were decent they would give us more coverage. There's a reason why our games our on ESPN3 all the time and not on ESPN/ESPN2.

IF this happens, and I figure it is a big if, then do the ACC, PAC-12 and Big 12 feel the need to also be at 14 teams to be one of the Big Five conferences?

The article mentioned Connecticut to the ACC. Does that make Louisville/Cincinnati suddenly attractive to the Big 12? Especially if the PAC-12 grabs two more teams, which would have to be Boise State and BYU, or two Big 12 schools (Texas/Oklahoma?).

I'll be upset if we ever joined the Big 12. Playing in another time zone sucks. Ask WVU how their season is looking right now.

WVU is struggling right now because the competition is much tougher, not because they have to fly a few hours west for some road games.

Dude the Big12 has much better teams and outside of RU and Ville the rest are bums. Also the pac12 would never add BSU because they are not an AAU school and was a JUCO college 15 years ago.

The best chance Cincinnati has is if the ACC decides to go to 16.

The best chance UC has is UT/TT/OU/OSU going to the P12. Other than that we are basically f'd. We are too far down the list for the ACC to even hope of getting in. It sucks, but it is the truth.

It's absolutely sickening that a $50 Million exit fee would not deter a team from leaving a conference. Just shows you how much money all these blood suckers are dealing with. Meanwhile an average middle class Parent can't afford to send their kid to school. And they gasp at the prospect of giving athletes a few extra dollars spending money. FUBAR.

RE: Report: B1G could add Maryland, Rutgers
UC to the ACC? A longshot but whoever imagined Pitt joining that well established group of southeast coastal schools. As stated earlier, it will take a seismic shift in conferences to open enough space in the ACC for UC. We have a stronger academic reputation, larger TV market and slightly closer proximity than Louisville which could help.
Does the B12 want to grow? They don't care so much about academics and UL and UC would create new TV markets for them and travel partners/geographic rivals for WVU. While we know it's all about football, UC/UL would put the B12 in the discussion as a top 1 or 2 basketball league which they would like. I'd think they would only do that if the TV revenue enhancement exceeded the loss by having to share $ with two more schools. I can't speculate on the economics of that but the B12 is saddled with a number of small TV markets (West Virginia, parts of Iowa, Kansas and Oklahoma).
Losing Rutgers (and I speculated upon UCONN) leaves the Big East without enough schools to split into divisions and I can't get excited about taking ECU, UAB or Tulane in a "panic buying" mode if this goes down.

If the Big East disappears would we not be better off going to a regional conference like the MAC? I can't imagine the dollars generated between the MAC and CUSA are much different and I think we save on all sports costs by being part of an Ohio-centric conference. It's not what I'd want, but from a $$$ and interest standpoint what's the difference?
