Don’t tell me you’re surprised by this. The idea that the commissioners, who hit the brick wall that we saw coming, are now going to turn this over to the presidents for resolution is high comedy. Bernie can always use another opportunity to threaten the Big Ten on exactly how it’s gonna be.
I must say that Andy Staples’ faith is touching.
The commissioners will meet again next week in Chicago. That meeting probably will unfold in a fashion similar to Wednesday’s conclave. Barring a miracle, don’t expect any grand pronouncements or puffs of smoke next week, either. At some point this summer, the commissioners and university presidents will put their heads together, hammer out an agreement and push the sport forward.
If you have any doubts, simply repeat after me.
They aren’t that stupid.
Hey, stop laughing. He’s serious… I think. And if by “that stupid”, he means they won’t walk away from bidding out the title game, he’s also right. As to the rest, well, yeah, they are.
And while we’re on the topic of stupid, I think it best to just leave this alone.
