      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
      That seems like a pretty accurate translation of Mr. George's mumbo jumbo.

              The reality is that there are at most 10 FBS schools where basketball is the tail that wags the dog - Duke, Kentucky, North Carolina, Kansas, Louisville, Indiana, etc. - while football wags the dog at the other 120.

                  This, plus the expansion of the SEC and the Supreme court ruling...Is this the beginning where college football starves itself before eating itself to death?

                    Very true.

                      Alrighty, I yield to the greater wisdom and will concede that the billion dollars a year CBS pays for the NCAA Tournament (basketball) is inconsequential.

I haven’t heard of any others in the Dallas area, or Texas for that matter. Just wonder if there’s others from around the country. Will be interesting to see how this plays out.
                        J.T. Daniels skipped his senior season at Mater Dei HS (Santa Ana CA) to enroll a year early at USC. He actually started at QBfor the Trojans that year, but got injured his soph year and lost his job. He transferred to Georgia, and may have worked his way into the starting job there this year. Mater Dei didn't miss Daniels that much. Bryce Young (probable starter at Alabama this year) replaced him.
                        So you may have two California QBs from the same high school starting for SEC powerhouses this year. Another QB from the same HS league is starting for Clemson.

                          This is correct. There was a story in The Athletic that the reason for the alliance is they want to get more 4 million football games for the three conferences, as in 4 million viewers, which have now been predominately SEC and Big 10 only. Not really sure what the Big 10 gets out of the alliance.

                            Its not inconsequential but the NCAA will soon be the way the Power 5 conferences are going. They will take over because, as jazz said, its football that wags the dog at most schools. No idea what will become of the NCAA basketball tournament when all this shakes out.

                              Football wags the dog to death at many FBS schools. It drives them deeper and deeper into debt and requires more and more support from student fees. A large segment of the FBS world isn't even close to breaking even on football. But you guys know that already.

                                I don't see the NCAA basketball tournament being hurt by this and it may actually be helped by the new NIL rules which may keep some star players in college longer before turning pro. Just think, under these rules Zion Williamson would have been able sign multimillion endorsement deals while he was still playing at Duke.
