    Throughout the pandemic the South has proved that the stereotypes about it are well deserved, though I think you may have posted this in the wrong thread.

        My alma mater should have fired Rolovich.

          Good for the Washington Governor to mandate it.

                From CU AD Rick George:

                I’m excited about today’s announcement regarding the Pac-12’s alliance with the ACC and Big Ten. This alliance is a collaboration on the future evolution of college athletics and inter-conference scheduling. All 41 world class institutions across these three conferences share similar student-athlete focused values, are grounded in their support of broad-based athletic programs and provide similar opportunities for student-athletes as part of the educational mission of each institution.

                This alliance will directly benefit our student-athletes in many ways. The collaboration among the 41 institutions will allow for further research in the areas of mental and physical health, student-athlete safety, and student-athlete wellness. Partnering with some of our peer institutions in this alliance on these projects is exciting and will further our excellence that we have established in the Pac-12.

                This alliance is also exciting for our alumni and fans. The inter-conference scheduling will provide us the opportunity to schedule games coast to coast. We’ll be able to set marquee matchups in all of our sports, all over the country. This will allow our fans even more opportunities to watch our student-athletes compete.

                This alliance is committed to leading the nation in our support for student-athletes academically, athletically and through our programs that support our student-athletes in the areas of health, safety and wellness. Student-athletes have always been our number one priority at the University of Colorado and this alliance strengthens that priority and sets us up well as we enter into the future of college athletics.

                Respectfully,
                Rick

                  Isn't this Big 10/ACC/PAC 12 alliance just a handshake agreement, meaning the SEC can still poach teams from these conferences in the future without repercussions to the teams leaving?

                    Looks like it. "Hey, we kinda like each other but mostly are worried about the SEC and maybe we can play a few games against each other." So FSU can fly to Seattle and USC to Boston College. Would be fun to see my Heels play my son's Buffaloes.

                    Seems like the Big 12 days (or years) are numbered, once OU and UT leave. WVU to the ACC? KU and K-State to the Big Ten, or Pac-12? Where would all the Texas teams go?

                        Big Ten should welcome Kansas -- AAU member with great basketball tradition

                          Yes, KU would fit in well in the Big Ten basketball-wise.

                            What he said is above. What he really meant is:

                            This alliance is all about money and football. We don't care about basketball, women's basketball, and we especially could care less about so-called Olympic sports. Anything that brings in more money for football is what we wanna do, so we can hire more football coaches, pay them more, and feed the tiger.

                            Respectfully and honestly,
                            Every AD in the ACC, Pac-12 and Big 10

                              This alliance has nothing to do with basketball.
