The Big East plays us like chumps
What was the message about conference realignment? It was mostly about money, with the key being an expanded "footprint". Essentially, TV contracts are based on all the markets your conference reaches. The Pac 12 sought Denver and added Colorado, the Big 10 added Nebraska and their historic national draw, while the ACC reached north into Pennsylvania and western New York. The SEC, for their part, added Missouri and a team from Texas.
But alas, these conferences weren't forward thinking enough. The Big East has made their move and added 5 teams, including Boise State and San Diego State as football only members.So the Big Ten covers Pennsylvania to Nebraska? Well the Big East ranges from Connecticut to San Diego. Suck on THAT, bitches.
