Great take on what’s going on in college athletics!

I know the liberals on here in particular don’t like Deace, but he has a really good take on what’s happening and it’s very much in line with what I have been saying for a few years in terms of the push for players to be paid and considered employees, etc. Not to be confused with NIL, which like Dabo, and Deace, I agree with, but think it could’ve been and should’ve been done differently.

Interesting viewpoint.

I have no idea how accurate he may be, but it is interesting to think of SEC vs. AAU schools. Or, as he put it - AAU schools protecting themselves, not conferences protecting themselves.

I have always thought of it as:
1. What will each school do to protect itself?
2. What will each conference do to protect itself?

I don't know that guy but I think he made some good points.

Although I'm pretty sure he's ignorant of a lot outside of the Big Ten. For example, Ohio State would not be considered the best public school aside from Texas in the SEC. Plus, I'm not sure why he thinks the Big Ten and the PAC are the only "academic"-minded conferences. The ACC certainly would be considered an equal or probably superior top-to-bottom than the PAC.

But his basic premise...basically "Why do this penny-wise, pound-foolish nonsense?" is spot on, in my opinion.

I’m pretty sure he said one of the better schools not the best school in the SEC.

Most of the schools in the Big Ten are AAU, which is a pretty prestigious Association. I looked it up and it’s very impressive. But yeah, the ACC doesn’t take a backseat to anyone in terms of big-time athletics and academics.

He is a Michigan guy and has a Michigan YouTube channel. But he is best known as a Christian conservative pundit and commentator. He is part of the Blaze network.

He is a regular on Mark Rogers’ show and every preseason he does a top 25 most talented teams and pre season top 25. He was also on Marks show recently and did a ranking of every division one team from last to first. I think he also ranked every head coach in division one from last to first.

He’s a sharp guy and has some really good takes.

Interesting. If the BIG starts discussions with Pac12 teams for some type of AAU consolidation, what would be the ACC's move? That would mean one mega conference (Pac12/BIG merger) plus the SEC and the ACC.

Does Phillps start making calls to USC, UCLA, Stanford?

I don't know if it's that great of a take. According to what others have said, Oklahoma and Texas didn't move to the SEC for the extra money.

Fascinating conversation, thanks for sharing. I really believe he’s on something when he talks about ESPN being behind all this so they could beef up the revenue associated with their SEC network. There’s a good chance that ESPN will lose out on the college football playoff to one of the streaming services like Amazon, so this is a proactive move by ESPN to protect their revenue by bringing Texas and Oklahoma into the SEC network. I think that guy is spot on. And it stinks. The SEC and ESPN are ruining college football, and it sucks.

AAU seems like a group of self defined elitists. Nebraska was kicked out because the med school is on a different campus, and the AAU stoped including their Ag department.
