    I gave up on football when ND aligned with the ACC instead of the more natural Big10.
    ...he went up late, and I was already up there.

    Now there is a tweet out about Kansas looking at moving to the Big East. Isn't all of this fun!

    But wait, that would "hurt" the University of Cincinnati! Oh, never mind.

    That has to be fake. Unless Kansas decides to play 11 homecoming football games as visitors.

    There have been lots of rumors and smoke over the last several years of Kansas looking to get out of the big 12...I wouldn't be surprised by this at all.

    Kansas leaving the Big 12 would make no sense unless the Big 12 starts to collapse. Even though their football team sucks they make way more money than they would in the BE.

    If I'm the Pac-12, I'd have to take a hard look at BYU and practically beg Gonzaga to start up a football program.

    I'll have to ask my Pac-12 friends if they would be amenable to firing Larry Scott again.

    If this actually does happen, I could see the PAC and the the Big 12 merging sometime in the future, with Gonzaga joining in everything but football. I could also see a scenario where the ACC is split up between the Big 10 and the SEC…….leaving us with 3 Mega conferences.

    I've got to believe you mean the ACC...not the AAC.

    well.....maybe Kansas leaving the B12 will be the thing that actually STARTS the collapse of the Big 12. And the money for Kansas under the former B12 was largely based on the giant football revenue associated with UT and Oklahoma being involved. That money will be reduced considerably under the new B12 arrangement. So, what would they really be walking away from?

    If they want to focus on BBall then the Big East is their best option. They bring ALOT of cache which would translate DIRECTLY to more TV Dollars for the BE TV deal. I would bet that the BE would actually be willing to pay the exit fee to the B12 on behalf of Kansas to get them to join. this would be a HUUUUUGE uptick for the BE, and if it happens, I would expect the Zags to follow
