re: Which is better: Mountain Brook or Buckhead? - Crowknowsbest
[quote]If you are raised in Mountain Brook your surroundings do not represent the rest of the country.[/quote] This would be my concern with Mountain Brook. It’s too comfortable for my liking, if that makes sense. I wouldn’t want to live in Atlanta, though. If these are my only two options, I wo...

re: The B1G Should Try and Raid the ACC - Crowknowsbest
[quote]So, for the sake of argument, lets assume that this somehow happens, why would these fan bases be upset with a move to the B1G?[/quote] For one, they have zero history with any of those schools outside of Maryland, and they don’t have a lot of respect for Maryland overall. Travel would also ...

re: The B1G Should Try and Raid the ACC - Crowknowsbest
[quote]And, every member of the B1G but Nebraska is a member of the AAU. UNC, Duke and Virginia are the only AAU members in the ACC. You cant tell me that wouldn't also be a big deal to them. [/quote] Those three are already are AAU members though, so they already have access to those funds. Their ...

re: The B1G Should Try and Raid the ACC - Crowknowsbest
[quote]No...just no. The B1G is getting ready to renegotiate their media rights. In 2 years, the B1G will be the wealthiest conference in America. Their deal with Fox will be gigantic.[/quote] This is a longer term decision than just the next media deal. A theoretical ACC with ND and PSU along with...

Pretty quickly now assuming it was at least a mid-level Power 5 school. I think with the transfer portal he would try to turn over the whole roster as fast as possible. He’d have them in contention as soon as he was able to do that....
