That one never made sense as ND had not even started looking at their new TV deal yet.
This one also has an issue. Both are state schools in very liberal states. Currently the governor of another liberal state is looking into ways to stop a school from leaving the P12. While some on here disagree I think the B1G will wait to add another state school until this plays out. States do provide some funding for state schools. They also provide services like roads to the schools. The state also pays into the power companies that provide power to these schools. Etc
Plus as we are in fall already ND was supposed to start negotiations for their TV deal in the spring. It will not take them long to see if they are in the same ball park as the B1G is. I also expect Warren signing with NBC adds pressure to ND - how much money is NBC laying into college football?
While Oregon and Washington may come to the conference eventually I doubt it will be in the window he claims. We are already more then hallway thru his window of time and there has been no movement.
