    Conference Realignment

    When Ohio State is in the playoffs, the B1G gets the payout (minus some expenses), not OSU. Same for every other conference. So sharing between the conference members is already happening. What I don't think will ever happen is that the P4/5 negotiate a huge payday for a playoff and they...

    Conference Realignment

    Then again, a scheduling alliance could be an easy first step for target schools to 1. Figure out the travel aspect and realize it isn't a deal breaker hurdle 2. Allow their fan base to get used to playing some of the more distant teams so that it is not as large of a culture shock if a more...

    Conference Realignment

    If you think football money will be spread around the NCAA, I believe you fundamentally misunderstand the interests of the parties involved in P5 conferences.

    Conference Realignment

    If these three conferences (with 40+ votes) want, they can exert control over a larger playoff by setting the rules for selection.

    The Illinois Coaching Search

    Yes I can definitely see Brey. Everything I see on his salary show it is below $1m but he's gotten $700k bonuses the last two years. Before that he was making $800k range which is criminally low for what he has done at Notre Dame. Sent from my Nexus 9 using Tapatalk

    Huggins would be a shocker given that he's an alumni. I was typing my Brey guess as your post went up. Sent from my Nexus 9 using Tapatalk

    The Illinois Coaching Search

    Mike Brey? Is his salary really under $1m? He has been at ND for 15-16 seasons ND has been top 5 in the ACC the last 3 years and was upper division most of the final years of the Big East. Before Brey ND had missed the NCAA for a dozen years straight but he's got them into the tournament 11...
