    Power conferences send message to little guys

    Jim Delany Warns Non-AQ Leagues: Don't Expect More Than You're Getting -- NCAAFB FanHouse

    And he's absolutely right. Under the current BCS system, the non-auto qualifiers have more access than they would have at any time before to the premier bowls, that almost always chose from the current BCS conferences, and would continue to as those are the ones that bring the most fans, fill the stadiums, and generate the highest ratings.

    Time for the non profit status to go


    I don't do signatures. Blondes, brunettes, and red heads are a different story.
