Boyz II Men, ACC, BBD: The Atlantic Coast Family Looks to Add Pitt and Syracuse (and What it Means for Texas, Notre Dame and the Big Ten)

Frank the Tank is an excellent source of sports news and his article on Texas and Notre Dame is no exception.  The following is an excerpt from his article:

What have I kept saying for over a year now? The ACC is much stronger than what people give it credit for.  Pete Thamel of the New York Times is reporting that the ACC is in discussions with Pitt and Syracuse.  This rumor had been floating around in some circles for a couple of days and then confirmed by this story on Friday night.  The latest news is on top of word that the respective Boards of Regents for both Oklahoma and Texas are meeting on Monday to authorize their presidents to negotiate and make decisions about conference membership.  This was a step that Texas A&M took right before it received its SEC invite last month, so a board action is more of a signal of the end of a process as opposed to a beginning.

Now, if we want to look at Thamel’s report as a straightforward story, we can just surmise that the ACC simply wants to go up to 14 schools with two institutions that are fantastic fits athletically, academically and culturally.  However, I’m going to put my tinfoil hat on for a moment (to the extent that all of you don’t already believe that I wear one 24/7/365).  We already know that one monster from Austin is looking at the ACC.  What are the repercussions for that other monster that lives in South Bend?  Let’s go through two scenarios that deal with two separate rumors that are circulating heavily in the blogosphere/Twitterverse/message board world (I’m not claiming either are valid, but rather performing a mental exercise in seeing how various dominoes can fall): (more…)

9/17 Super Saturday Big Games

Posted by    |    September 17th, 2011 at 5:30 am

Two big night games tonight, OU/FSU and Miami vs Ohio State. Texas at UCLA at 2:30. TCU plays at 1. A&M plays Idaho on pay-per-view tonight.Morning games include Auburn/Clemson, Penn St./Temple, Pitt/Iowa and WVU/ Maryland.

I’m picking OU by two touchdowns. Florida State has all the hype but Landry Jones is a killing machine. They’ll get worn out chasing Ryan Broyles and then quit. Ohio State by ten. Texas by 3, another late comeback win. Should be interesting to see how the McCoy/Ash scenario plays out. Way more interesting than watching Garrett Gilbert that’s for sure.

Newcastle/Aston Villa play in the morning on FSC followed by Kaiserslauten/FC Mainz 05 at noon on GolTV. Inter and Roma sqaure off at 1:30 on FSC. ManU vs Chelsea will be televised on Fox at 1 before the Cowboy game.

I’ll comment on any notable happenings tomorrow until after the Texas game then I have to go to work.
