my folks in Meade have the absolute fastest thing they can get and it's only LTE. Crazy Elon needs to get his 5G satellites flying ASAP.

When he gets that going I am seriously considering moving to Northern Minnesota for half the year. The broadband up there is terrible between those beautiful little lakes.

I'll also point out that streaming deals with a conference like the Big 12 is risky given the number of people in the conference without access to high speed internet. That's the biggest issue with the ESPN+ set up. Apple TV subscriptions could be problematic for rural folks in the plains.

that's a tiny number of people

ESPN+ sucks with freaking fiber for reasons we've discussed ad nauseam

According to the FCC 1/4 of rural americans don't have high speed internet access. Having just escaped living in rural america, and currently vacationing in rural america, I believe it. I also believe that percentage is greater in the south, midwest, and appalachia than rural areas on the coasts.

I didn't realize it was that high but you'd be surprised how isolated things can be on the rural west coast at least.

My folks always had a pretty forward thinking local telecom company that was like running fiber through rural Kansas in the nineties so I don't have a good sense outside of that. I figured at least dsl was available in most places in rural Kansas and Oklahoma

yup, this was dependent on if it was a local telco or a larger company like southwestern bell, at least in NC Kansas. Our local telco was using that FCC money to lay Fiber everywhere. My brother lives on the family farm 10 miles from town(500 people) and has fiber to his house. Neighbors who unfortunately aren't in the same exchange are stuck using wireless off the damn water tower.
Sometimes I think of the Book of Job and how God likes to really eff with people.

My girlfriend's family has internet from a local telcom in Northeast KS (15 minutes from Nebraska and 45 minutes from St Joe. Missouri) get like 5mbps down and 1 mbps up. They have direct tv and want nothing more to cancel cable and stream.

They are the 1/4 that hate ESPN+

I still think UCF would be great for recruiting, and great for away games.

Bounce:  With the PAC's decision to not play FB this year, may open the conference up for ripe picking.  Their network/TV contract is due for renewal in
'23 so team hunting should start in a couple of years.  Any thoughts of who we should invite.

Throw your hunter’s orange on fellas. It’s about time to go out looking for some big game.

I got tags for Wildcats, Buffaloes and possibly Rams. Utes and Mormons lurk over the ridge, ripe for capture and likely easy to coerce into the fold. Wild pigs to the southeast also look mighty tasty.

If there was a gif of nicname thwarting the attempted-flag-taker and then gesturing him to suck it, followed by motioning for all of Hilton Shelter to boo him louder, it'd be better than that auburn gif.

I see no reason the league office and every conference title game wouldn’t be in KC.

Anyone who has a list that keeps Baylor in the BigXII goes straight to jail and does not collect $200.

I think that if the two Arizona schools would be a nice addition.  I don't think we'll lose any schools.

I don't see any rights deal paying us an additional $30 million a year, per school, for any Pac 12 school, so I think we're good.

My opinion is that MIR is correct.  I'd add that I continue to believe that it is effectively impossible for any P5 team to get kicked out of their conference.  I suppose another conference MIGHT get a $30 bump by adding one of our members and convince our member to leave.   The only two that could ever approach that are UT and OU, and they seem to like being the undisputed lords of their conference.

So, unless there is some new player in the bidding for the next round of conference football TV deals willing to spend substantially more than any known media player, then there is no way this conference is different in the next 10 years.
