Big 10 were there to rescue two universities that saw the writing in the wall. They didn’t go poaching from what I understand.
Friday should have a lot of movement I’d imagine. Arizona is basically ready to go. Big12 apparently voted Thursday to approve them if they accept the offer.
I believe if the PAC12 dissolves then Stanford, Cal, Oregon State, and Washington State end up in the ACC in the ACC's preparation of losing Clemson and Florida State to the SEC when their grant of rights is closer to that 2036 end of contract, otherwise those schools end up independent, at least for a short time, with some sort of scheduling alliance between themselves, Notre Dame, and the ACC.
Leave Utah out in the cold or force them to take less money for 10 years
It seems to me that Kliavkoff really burned some bridges with the leading media rights companies in trying to get more leverage than he had. So, the media rights companies tightened the screws and withheld their support while offering a nominal media rights deal that would minimize their success.

so sick of hearing how the Big 10 cares so much about Academics but are breaking up conferences for the almighty dollar.
