What is Most Likely to Happen
This topic has been beaten to death - but, given what we all know and all the various scenarios, which of the following is most likely to happen:

1) Tigers Remain in New AAC

2) Tigers Join 12

3) Tigers Join ACC

4) Tigers Join MWC

5) Tigers Become a Part of a Eastern Wing of the MWC.

6) Part of the MWC Becomes a Part of a Western Wing of the AAC.

7) Something Else Not Thunk Up Yet.

What's the time frame? The ACC is heading towards their Armageddon in 10 years or so. Or sooner if it makes sense to get out despite the grant of rights.

Number 1 you have to be CHOSEN to go somewhere else. The conference would have to be dissolved for us to move and I don’t think that would be good either. This is what happens when one sport dominates the landscape.

7. A new football division will be formed with about 32-40 of the top CF brands. The other half of the current P5 will reorganize with the top of the G5 and the Tigers will be in that group.

I wish I had your faith Ike.

For what its worth - I think our immediate fate depends entirely on what happens between the PAC and the 12. Not to doubt your sources but it seems that anything ACC related is a lifetime away.

I think this is most likely final scenario; I am hoping for 24.

I think some sort of league with B12 castoffs like Kansas, Iowa State, Baylor and then most of the better teams in the AAC...so option 7 for me

The FTC is asked to explore the possibility of regulating college sports as interstate commerce.

I second that. Once the cream of the current P5 is skimmed off, we are a much more attractive conference partner to the schools left over.

Well, if they are getting paid to play, which between the value of a scholarship, training table meals, housing, stipend, and now NIL - is exactly what it amounts to - then the players need to receive either 1099s or w-2s and pay taxes like the rest of the world's employees.

This multi-billion dollar industry should lose amateur status and be regulated like any other business would be.

University schollies are non-taxable - whether athletic or academic or whatever. This is how it should be unless you are proposing removing tax deductions and credits for college expenses.

And I'm pretty sure they are getting 1099's on the NIL stuff. I read an article about that and the resulting financial/tax advisors that are being brought in by universities.

Now unionization with benefits is a whole 'nother animal - which is likely next for the "super conference".

Add me to that thought. Forced shotgun wedding with folks who think they are to good for us or a Best of the Rest conglomeration.
