This provides MUCH MORE support for the ditching of that carolina team from the 2013 schedule and to clear the way in the schedule for when ever that carolina team would have made an appearance at TCF BANK STADIUM. OBVIOUSLY, the B1G Conference considers that carolina team to be capable of playing B1G level football IF the Conference really IS considering bringing them into the Conference. Right now: The Gopher Football Team needs WINS in the ooc portion of the schedule. The LAST THING Gopher Football needs for NEXT season and heading into the Conference EXPANDED Schedule is to possibly LOSE an ooc game in 2013. That might put the Gopher's rebuilding process in reverse IF they fail to win a bowl invitation at the end of the 2013 season. THAT could really mess things up for this program in the future. ONLY wins can help strengthen and rebuild a football program on the college level. ONLY wins...AND expanding the schedule/season by being invited to play a major confrence team at a neutral site at the end of December or thefist part of January... IF the B1G issues an invittion for North Carolina to join he conference...that's fine. However, the ditching of carolina by our new Norwood and his friends was nothing short of BRILLIANT strategy for the current situation with the U of M Football Program... BEAT MSU, Gophers...In 2012...the Gophers BOWL! ; 0 )

The sweet-heart deal between ND and the ACC revealed that the ACC is economically nonviable and desperate. The BEAST is disintegrating rapidly. So, realignment will continue for a few years. Ultimately, the B1G and the SEC will suck up all the viable athletic programs between the Mississippi valley and the Atlantic Coast. Each conference will end with 20 or 24 members.

The ONLY ACC school that ever made sense for the B1G is Boston College (with its hockey program and large urban market) so, with Maryland on its way, you cannot use "sense" to figure out what is going to happen next. What startles me is that this is all about football. The ACC is such a rich basketball conference I'm surprised, and disappointed, that its members are looking to abandon it.

THIS is about CONTENT. Football, basketball...men's and women's. Hockey...men's and womens. Baseball and softball and volleyball...these sports are all finding their way to cable programming on the B1G Network. CONTENT and FILLER programming of live sporting events will most certainly compete with 24/7 news station, relity show re-runs and infomercials. In some areas soccer...Lacrosse. The B1G is a FULL-SERVICE Network. And, younever know what the futur will bring. LOOK at the demographics of EACH region. As has been proven in the mot recent election results...women WILL become a much more highly targeted demographic as consumers or all products, inluding the packaging of cable sports options. There will be a LOT of money to be made from an athletic conference that has the full-range of Men's AND Women's sports. Just ask the Republican Party IF they would like to find ways to attract MORE women voters.... ; 0 )
