I think that most us had feeling that ESECPN had some dirty dealings in this move bc, it means a bigger SEC that would favor ESECPN even more financially!!!

You are obviously not in business. All is fair in love and corporate profits.

Disney seems to want a monopoly on everything. We sometimes forget who owns ESPN.

The moral of that, keep ESPN on the side of the ACC.

ESPN and the SEC would get taken down a notch off there high horse, but until they can proof it what will they say next that Clemson hater himself ex ACC commissioner John Tarheel Swofforest was the one behind it.

Hopefully the evidence is revealed instead of us having to take the Little 12's word for it.

Here's the scoop

The AAC is trying to raid the Little 12, have contacted several schools and claim to have ESPN's backing for a new TV contract if they join. The supposed reason for this support is ESPN can save millions of dollars by canceling their deal with the Little 12 if the conference collapses quickly.

If you subscribe the The Athletic, link below has it all.

I've said this before and will do so again: The Athletic is the only sports website I've found that is legitimately worth subscribing to. It has great information, oftentimes stuff you won't see on other websites or they will have it a day or two earlier.

If you are purely a Clemson football, it's probably not worth it. That said, Grace Raynor does a great job covering Clemson football.

Also Sanky is one of the four trying to move playoff to 12, so was the big 12 commish. Then this happens right after that. So Sanky sitting in the same room with the guy knowing what's getting ready to happen. Wow

This is why Sanky is THE BOSS***

Both schools participated in Big 12 meetings discussing “proprietary information”. Greg Sankey is a committed and devout Christian. Trying to get hands around deception he used or allowed to get deal done. Appreciate any thoughts on point.
