Like shooting hypocrites in a barrel

The problem with throwing shade at Greg Sankey is that every P5 conference lives in a glass house ($$).

For about a month, SEC commissioner Greg Sankey has listened to the wide range of reactions to his conference’s impending expansion, the most pointed being Washington State president Kirk Schulz’s referring to the SEC as “predatory.”

Now Sankey has a response.

“I certainly like the president at Washington State,” Sankey told The Athletic. “I think he’s forgotten that in 2010 the conference in which he currently resides recruited half of the Big 12 members to join its league.”

Ummm… he didn’t forget.  He was hoping nobody would notice.

  2. For all we can say about $ankey, dumb is not a word to use. He has been waiting for the right time to use that line. Now that everyone is in the acceptance phase, he pulls it out to twist the knife to pretty much say, “It’s time to stop the temper tantrum and move forward on playoff expansion.”

    They all chose to play this game, they’re just losing in a rout. It’s really all the ACC’s fault, though. Things were fine before they started poaching the Big East. In fact, it was the SEC that was getting disrespected before then. There can be only two or three dominant teams per conference, no matter how many good teams you put together, so the recruits within that conference consolidate towards the top. Once you remove the best few teams from a conference the rest of those teams can’t recruit for shit and so the talent consolidates even further into the stronger conferences and then into the top teams therein. It just kept happening and happening until now there are maybe 6 teams nationwide who truly recruit at an elite level, and at least three of them are in the SEC.

    And so this is all the ACC’s fault.

      Or, you could point at the SEC for taking Arkansas out of the SWC which contributed to the collapse of that league and the formation of the BigXII which was, from the start, unstable so that Nebraska left, Colorado left, the Pac12 tried to kill it, then Mizzou and A&M left and now, here we are.

      Yeah, I had to laugh at the speculation that the ACC was going to join the coalition of the righteous here and save college football from the big, bad SEC. The ACC is the only conference to literally destroy another one.

    People didn’t get this upset when Rutgers and Maryland split the acc for the Big 10. What, nobody’s noticed yet?
