    It costs them a lot. NIL.

    No. If this move happens, and it looks like it will as of yesterday, the NCAA can no longer claim they aren't slavemasters. The players are going to get paid, big time. Amateur collegiate athletics is done.

    Okay, now I understand.

    Seems to me that "amateur" college athletics in football and basketball have been gone for a long time. Only those universities willing to play strictly by the rules get screwed by following those rules. The SEC particularly has been an offender in many ways. A large number of their athletes are not truly student athletes.

    Anyway, opening it all up to every university might be an interesting thing to see. The pretense that college athletics is actually just a part of a true education is a laugh.

    If this happens, the NFL may be the loser.

    Looks like weíre headed to having two super conferences. Personally I donít want to see ND join the Big 10.

    They just wouldnít be a good fit. Economically for sure but they just donít fit culturally. ND had their chance with the Big 10. I think if they were forced to join a conference they would be better off in a parochial school conference.

    The thing Iím wondering is will this alignment mean the end of the Bowl era to create an alignment for a true national championship post season.

    Or top the conference out at 20 and change the conference name to The Big 20 ergo demonstrating our graduates can at least count. Sure that’s a pretty dubious honor to claim but it would still be enough to put us ahead of the SEC academically.

    Now that so many are waking up to how profoundly the universities have failed and betrayed us is college football still going to be a thing? I see a lot of "Please do not give anymore money to universities, they are Evil now (paraphrase)" so I wonder.

    How does one now go to a major university football game and feel good about what they are participating in?
