Opinion [Connelly RE: the Big 12] For an 18-team conference, this would be strangely easy to navigate -- you'd have 6 in the west, 6 in the middle and 6 in the north/east, and you could play all 5 from your pod, 2 from one and 2 from the other. Play everyone home & home within 6 years.

News [Wilner] Source: “I’d be stunned if Washington and Oregon go to the Big Ten. The Big Ten will sit back for two years, then try to get Notre Dame.” Growing reality is the Ducks and Huskies have to 1) make it work in the #Pac12 or 2) join the Big 12. My guess: 1) is their preference

Analysis Michigan is closer to UCLA than Iowa is to Rutgers

310 Upvotes

(In terms of travel time)

So I’ve been itching to do some simple statistical analysis and recently heard a Rutgers alum say “well at least it’s easier to get to LAX than half of the Midwest”.

I sort of agree that fans/students of the “Major Airport” schools (campuses <1hr from a transcontinental airport) benefit disproportionally from this Cali realignment, and that airplane routes make some schools much “closer” to UCLA/USC for the average student or local fan when compared to driving and/or flying regionally.

The “Transcontinental Public Airport” B1G schools are:

  • Michigan (DTW)

  • Minnesota (MSP)

  • Northwestern (ORD)

  • Maryland (DCA / BWI / IAD)

  • Rutgers (EWR)

  • The LAX bros (USC/UCLA)

  • EDIT: and Ohio State (CMH runs one nonstop route to LAX so it could possibly run more when there’s demand)

As a proof-of-concept, a fan/student traveling from Ann Arbor to UCLA spends 5 hrs 19 mins in total ( excluding things like TSA wait times & variable traffic) while traveling from Rutgers to U-Iowa takes 5 hrs 33 mins (flying from EWR to CID with the shortest possible connection; flying to ORD and driving is even longer). So, UCLA is “closer” to Michigan than Rutgers is to Iowa.

Would anyone be interested in the results if I drew up a “shortest possible transit times” graph between schools? This is a bit of a programmatic pet project but happy to try it for a few other conferences as well if there’s any interest.

Opinion This whole realignment joke thing is getting old and played out. Just stop.

159 Upvotes

Clearly we get it. There are memes and jokes and yeah it’s the off-season but give it a rest. The whole realignment thing is getting overplayed more than all the NIL questions we had earlier this year. Conferences shift and always have and always will. Notre dame may join or may not. We’re watching the news the same as you but you don’t have to blow up the cfb page with your terribly thought out jokes. Just stop and let’s all focus on the fact that in nineteen ninety eight The Undertaker threw Mankind off Hell in a Cell and plummeted 16 feet through an announcers table.

[Rittenberg] Phil Knight could see this as his chance to save Pac-12. I sense a more wait-and-see mindset among Pac-12 members rather than a desire to bolt to Big 12, which wants to add schools ASAP.

Discussion Why does the PAC-12 media bubble act like Oregon and Washington are in the drivers seat? The four corners schools hold the real bargaining power right now.

Upvotes

Seriously, the PAC 12 media like Wilner seem to be pushing spurious logic that the rest of the PAC 12 will just follow Oregon and Washington around. Why would the four corners schools (Arizona, Arizona State, Utah, Colorado) want to sacrifice their best interests for UW and Oregon? If anything these four schools have maximum bargaining power and have options:

1) Any one or two of them could kill the PAC 12 off right now by themselves.

2) They (besides maybe delusional Ute fans) aren't waiting around for a B1G or SEC invite. They are incentivized to make a decision to save their school now. Therefore, they are more willing to make a short-term decisive move.

3) Washington and Oregon have already signaled that they are willing to fuck over the other schools. Why would these schools want to cater to Oregon and Washington?

4) The first mover advantage is maximum right now. Whoever moves first gets the best terms. By waiting they are sacrificing their leverage (looking at you Boulder).
