So yes...I've gone to the dark side...well kinda.

I basically snagged this solely to play one game: Microsoft Flight Simulator. If you're asking why didn't I just get a PC that can run this game, well let's take a look at that:

-a laptop that can run this game starts at over a grand, and I already have a laptop that is more than capable of doing the things I need it to do (work on papers, run zoom conferences, DJ).

-a Series S costs $299. a flight stick costs $69 (nice). The optional rudder pedals cost an additional $110 or something like that, but since they aren't in stock at the moment, no biggie.

This console will most likely be my flight game one at this point (Star Wars Squadrons, Ace Combat, and MSFS2020). I'll let you know how it goes.

I too have been mulling the Xbox but the disc version. but so far I am sticking to Switch and Steam :)

Apparently in response to Texas and OU making the move to join the SEC in a few seasons, supposedly USC reached out to the B1G in hopes of possibly joining their ranks...fast forward to just a few days ago and we have USC and UCLA joining the B1G (I'm not calling this the Big Ten anymore, it hasn't been 10 teams since the early 90s and the name should've gone out the window forever once Nebraska, Maryland, and Rutgers joined the fray). Current B1G conference members unanimously agreed to allow them in (good for Northwestern, it's the only way they'll get to Pasadena anytime soon).

Rumors are already flying that we're not done here, with other teams from the Pac-12 and maybe the ACC jumping ship to the B1G or SEC. This likely ends up with two super conferences with 20 teams each (for now anyway). I'm personally hoping this somehow ends up with Hawai'i ending up in the ACC or Big East.

I think when its all said and done there will be only 2 to 3 conferences playing D1 or the former group of 5. I think it will be the SEC and B1G and then maybe ACC or some cobbled conference of pac 12/big 12/acc merger left overs.

I do think Notre Dame will be forced into a conference. The big 10 and SEC could tell conferences you want to make the playoffs? you have to have full members in a conference. Besides why would NBC pay 75million for essential 6 or 7 game inventory when ABC/ESPN/CBS or fox are paying 100 million for 20 games a week


I can see this playing out

SEC/B1G will court Notre Dame. They will either join them or Save the ACC and join them and make them relevant.

The SEC will court Notre Dame and try for some sort of North Carolina and Virginia (or Va. Tech not both)  and a long Shot of Colorado / Iowa st or a kansas school to get to 20.

The B1G will court Notre Dame and do something similar with Oregon, North Carolina, Virginia, maybe even go after a Miami FSU Clemson .

This is about expanding TV viewership not about borders and regional alignment. The SEC will not go after Clemson or FSU because they are in those markets already. FSU fans watch Florida, USC fans watch Clemson and vice versa. The days of being in the conference with a team from the same state are over for this version of College football.

I know SEC added Texas after A&M but if you are big conference, you Dont turn down Texas, Notre Dame, OU, USC, Bama, OSU, Michigan, Georgia, North Carolina if they want to join your Conference. Florida, USC and Georgia have kept Clemson FSU and Ga Tech from joining (or rejoining after they left). Although When the SEC expanded in the late 80's adding Ark and USC, UF was going to allow FSU but they declined. That invite went to USC.

I think Notre Dame if they dont join the B1G or SEC then they will join the ACC or some hybrid of the leftovers and make that conference relevant. ND doesnt want to join and may join another league to spite the 2 big behemoths.

These are my opinions based on what I have heard and read and deduced from my time working in the TV industry for years. I could be totally wrong, but I think I may be on to something LOL.

But right now, Big 10, SEC, and Notre Dame will shape the future of college football.

Update on me, I met a nice nurse and we have been hitting it off. I bought a house and been spending months culling old shit, moving unpacking and doing repairs.  I started a new job in Jan to get back into being a programmer (software dev) So a lot of training and catching up. Life is doing better. Hope all is well with everyone else.

What is funny my last post is this thread is when I met this lady, and its been working out.
