Crow might have an about face when he wakes up to realize that his only options are the Big-12, the rotting corpse of the Pac-XX or the MWC.

It's crazy that schools like Illinois, Northwestern, Indiana, Rutgers, and Maryland will be making close to $100M a year while the Pac 12 and Big 12 schools will be lucky to get over $30M.

How long before the Big 10 and SEC force out their Vanderbilts or force an unequal revenue share in their conferences?

You don’t force out teams that represent “easy” wins because the time is coming where FCS teams will no longer play the teams in the super conferences. I’m not saying it can’t happen I just don’t believe it will happen

It’s possible they could go to unequal revenue sharing but my guess is it would still be financially advantageous for the Vanderbilts of the world to take it

Vandy has the best baseball program in the SEC and is arguably the best academic institution in the conference. I cant see a situation in which Vandy is purged.

Plus it is in Nashville, the heart of SEC Country, major hub and destination.

This is all about football. A university's baseball program has zero bearing on realignment. I'm not saying they'll get kicked out, but they are freeloading in football which drives 90% of realignment.

Football is driving reassignment for sure but the SEC has dumped a piss ton of money into baseball. Vanderbilt is safe because they are beatable in football and always have good baseball and even decent basketball
