    Does this posture the AAC to seize Texas when the Big 12 finally collapses? Is that what this is really all about?

    There ya go....that shouldn't be to hard ..;)

    Speaking of CR ...... is this what's in store for the next round: Conference re-alignment will come - shaped by tech, not TV

    “Conference realignment will come,” he said (high ranking executive at Amazon) , “but probably not in the way you’re thinking.”
    He explained that Amazon, Netflix and perhaps even Apple, Google and Facebook, (aka ‘FAANG’), will be more instrumental than current TV networks in reshaping what we know now as conference affiliations. Naturally, I doubted this statement, until he explained why.
    “We already have more cash than ABC/ESPN, NBC or CBS” he said. “And, In another five or six years, it won’t even be close. And too, ”the tech companies are far more advanced than the networks when it comes to knowing how to use the future broadcast technologies, (streaming) and that gap is growing to"........

    Again, back to my friend at Amazon. “We’re still seven or eight years away,” he said, “but if we had to restructure the landscape today, we would not start by negotiating with a conference. We don’t care about the SEC, Big 12 of Big 10 as a whole. In our opinion, those entities are not our focus.
    “Instead, we would want to identify 30 or 40 teams that command the biggest audience. That may be by reputation or location, but generally we all know that there are members in every one of these conferences that frankly don’t move the needle.
