Randy Edsall on autonomy: One step closer to splitting off

Randy Edsall

The vote in favor of autonomy from the 65 member institutions from the ACC, Big 12, Big Ten, Pac-12 and SEC signaled the official dawn of a new era in college sports. Perhaps the writing is on the wall and has been for some time, but Maryland head coach Randy Edsall suggested the power conferences are that much closer to breaking off and playing an entirely different game from the rest of the college football and sports world.

“I think it’s one step closer to the five conferences splitting off,” Edsall said Thursday, according to CSN Baltimore reporter Daniel Martin.  “I really do, but again I think there’s bigger issues now that you have that in terms of who is really going to take charge of what’s best for football.

“Yeah, you have this autonomy but now what are we going to do with that to get the collegiate model, you know, the way it should be or back to where it was?”

That will be one of the biggest questions that needs to be addressed. Now that the power conferences have this extra power, what will they do with it? Will they work well with the other conferences or will there be another divide between conferences?

For now, the commissioners of the power conferences appear satisfied, while there are some mixed reactions from the commissioners of the other conferences.

    I’m sorry, but if you start a story with “Randy Edsall thinks” or “Randy Edsall says” I can’t believe a word he says.

    Sadly, he’s probably right. The almighty dollar continues to rule and no one cares about the fans.

    brownsmakemecrazy, do you ever have anything meaningful to say? We ALL know how you love to bash the entire B1G 10 and Randy Edsall. Why don’t you tell us something worth talking about instead of all your childish negative knocking of everything not SEC no doubt. You knock everyone’s team, yet you never will tell us all who your team is. Why is that? Afraid somebody might point out some of your teams shortcomings, cheating ways, etc, etc.
