For what it's worth, Jon Steinbrecher has not been silent. He just hasn't been lighting his hair on fire. If you aren't at the table, you are on the menu, etc.



I notice that Steinbrecher isn't endorsing this or opposing this. As I read this, he is encouraged by the prospect of an expansion to 12 schools but thinks more can be done to make this better. Anyone read this differently?

Personally I think this is a weak statement. Appears he is trying not to ruffle any feathers and play neutral

That's exactly the attitude I want to see the Commissioner of the MAC taking. You don't win things at the bargaining table from those who stand to benefit big-time from this by swooning at how great it is.

It's sometimes been observed that the selling price of the house may well be the price it was at when they heard your wife say she likes the kitchen.

Announce a multi-billion dollar media deal before the contracts have been negotiated and signed?

Yeah, no, not likely.

They haven't even sorted out the details of how the Bowls will be involved ... the Big Ten and PAC-12 were not in the organizing group, so obviously the plan was to get momentum for the plan BEFORE bringing it to those three to sort out how the Rose Bowl fits in, which will then allow working out how the Sugar and Orange Bowl fit in, which will then allow working out where the Fiesta, Cotton and Peach bowl fit in.

The announcement was now so they could start the ball rolling ... take the temperature of the reaction in the rest of Division 1 at the summer meeting, organize the negotiations for the contracts, etc.
