Just seems like a bunch of bull shit now
I am not shocked that it has dragged out. I never expected anything to happen:
1) before the new playoff format was decided (and it still may not be decided this week if the Presidents balk)
2) before the Big 12 actually had a new commissioner
3) before WVU and TCU were full members
4) until the ACC tried to make some last ditch efforts to keep FSU happy.
I would honestly be shocked if anything happened before the end of July. I also would not be surprised if it was next summer before it all shook out.
I actually expect this to shake out before August 15...deadline to leave the ACC for the yr....having worked in sales with large contracts for many yrs there are only so many times you have to try to consumate big deals. Feelings get hurt on sides and people get fatigue over trying to close the deal.
New post from the Dude...
The Dude of WV@theDudeofWV
The Big 12 needs to give ND an ultimatum. A July 1st deadline for joining the conference or not. Then move on...
Nobody is going to give ND an real ultimatum. Any conference would take them at any time...
True but you still need to say....we'd love to have you but we need to move on with planning.
Conferences need to give up on Notre Dame. Only way they ever join a conference is if the way a National Championship is determined forces them to. Texas & Swofford need to get that through their thick head and move on.
exactly right....ND isn't joining a conf...no reason for them too...their negotiated a deal that supports their position of staying independent.
It doesn't matter what you tell people they will freak out or celebrate much too early regardless. All along nothing was happening before the BCS got ironed out, nothing was happening before TCU and WVU become full members of the Big 12, so really nothing has happened or was going to happen and yet everyone has thrown in the towel??
We may go, we may not go, we may get replaced in the deal because our admin is dumb, every option is still on the table as of June 25th, 2012. ND may join the BIG 12, ACC, or Stay Indy. All we really 100% know right now is that if FSU doesn't do anything by August 15th then they will be playing in the ACC in 2013, that's it. The entire thing hinges on FSU and what they decide to do, imo.
I am in wait and see mode at this point, who knows what will happen.
