Tranghese: No answer to Big Ten expansion

``For any school that wants to depart, there is a $5 million fee. That’s not enough to prevent anyone from going. The Big Ten is making an enormous amount of money. Is $5 million significant? Yes. Will a school pay it? Yes. It’s not a deterrent.’’

Tranghese mentioned a possible 27-month waiting period for teams leaving the Big East, which would prove ``awkward,'' for players and coaches on the departing teams. He did not, however, suggest it might be a deterrent.

He also emphatically ruled out the possibility that Notre Dame would join the Big East as a football-playing member. Notre Dame plays in the conference’s basketball league and in other sports.

``It’s never going to happen,’’ Tranghese said. ``Notre Dame is not going to play football in the in the Big East. That conversation was held at the time [they joined the league.] They made it clear they had no interest in football.’’

ESPN. The coverage is excellent, you'd be surprised at how much you can pick up.

Still more on topic than your average Recruiting Thread

This is my school
This is home

To be fair he was right about all of it.

Old sigline: I've been cutting back on the drinking.

New Sigline: lol it's football season.

Kinda hard not to be wrong, TBH.

I'm just shocked Joe started a thread that got ZERO comments for 10 days short of an octade.

Sometimes we live no particular way but our own

That's what sucked me in. "(9, 9 New)" Had to be a new thread, because all the comments were new.

/sigh

If you're not sure if my comment warrants a "/s", it probably does.

It was the first thread ever posted. Joe was the only member of TKP at that point.

Wait...what??!! Does this mean the Big Easy is going to fall apart into something unrecognizable?

Are we going to stay or go to the SEC?

Well they made it through Mardi Gras 2018 so I guess we'll find out next year.

I was a bit confused for a second, then I checked the date.

Safe to say that was all of us.
