I'm also a fan. (the mspaint stories are almost always gold)
This post (in their ~350-page realignment thread) made me choke on my coffee, and it could be useful here.
For anyone joining this thread (malign fiesta) without the benefit (pain) of having lived (endured) it from the beginning, I want to take a moment to list the “immovable objects” that the super-majority of posters on this thread agreed upon a jabillion pages ago. A few posters are listing these individually, but I wanted to collect them in an one-stop-shoppe.
Twenty percent of the bandwidth from the past 72 hours has been completely wasted on topics and speculation that are fantasy and self-aggrandizing fan fapping. It would be useful and fair to ask, as realignment heats up YET AGAIN, does your post add value? Do you have anything to *ADD* or are you just screaming a wishful personal opinion? Are you advancing the argument or adding REAL analysis? Are you reporting NEWS? Finally, if you are convinced you have a GRAND REALIGNMENT STRATEGY that also serves to supplant the need for an Unified Field Theory of Quantum Mechanics, please note, we’ve seen ONE HUNDRED PLANS just as big, large, and/or grandiose as your thesis/tract/novel, earlier in this thread, and the probability that anyone of import is going to read it is low, and the probability that the rest of us are going skip over it, is high.
1. Domer to the b1g. It will be the last possible move on the chessboard. In the year 2312. Don’t argue it. Don’t waste bandwidth on it. Just accept it. As far as anyone alive today is concerned, IT WILL NEVER HAPPEN.
2a. Tobacco Road. Monolithic. They will go down together kicking and screaming.
2b. Virginia and the CIC could potentially be an exception to this, clearing the VPI -> SEC politics off the table.
2c. UNC/NCST v. Texas/aggy. There is no difference. In the case of Texas and the PUF, Little Brother TWICE kokblocked Big Brother, but Little Brother was able to leave on their own accord, and NCST will too.
3. TX + OU + ? PAC
The Grant of Rights and the LHN prevent this. Please do not waste any time discussing it, wishing for it or fapping to it.
4. TX + OU + ? SEC
The Grant of Rights and the LHN prevent this. Please do not waste any time discussing it, wishing for it, or fapping to it.
5. FSU + Clemson SEC
The tripartite pact (Florida/Georgia/SCarolina) and the coming SEC network prevents this. Please do not waste any time discussing it, wishing for it, or fapping to it.
6. $600M. That’s the approximate number CBS pays for the AFC package every year. The idea that any college payout package, including tier 1/2/3, is going be worth MORE than the AFC on CBS? Draw your own conclusion.
Be glad they are gone. Celebrate them being gone. Never forget, they WILL find a way to screw themselves. aggy in the secsecsec is still aggy. Our problems are self-inflicted.
<ptp> how many emo kids does it take to change a lightbulb?
<Willy> HOW MANY?!
