    Super Conferences

    Scout.com: The Super-Conferences Are Coming

    I'm not a fan of the Super Conference idea - but this guy's plan makes some sense to me. I do like where he puts Iowa State, although I'm not thrilled with his comment on Iowa State.

    Re: Super Conferences

    Interesting read. I'm not sure the money adds up for all of the conferences to expand to 16.

    The other thing I don't get about 16 team conferences is how they are going to scheduler their games. If they play 7 division games and 2 interdivision games they would only play teams from the other division every 4 years if they don't do home/home. If two major rivals end up on opposite sides that really kills a big revenue game. I don't think anyone is willing to go to more than 9 conference games either for money reasons.

    I guess we'll see what happens.

    Re: Super Conferences

    That is not a bad idea. I would rather expand the Big 12 to 16 teams but what can you do?

    .

    They would try to keep major rivals in the same division or a protected rival like what the BIG 10 is doing.

    He might put ISU in the Big 10 but no conference university President will and thats really all that matters.

    Re: Super Conferences

    The state of Texas should just form it's own conference. Texas, A&M, Tech, Baylor, North Texas, Rice, Houston, SMU, TCU, and UTEP. No one will care about 8 of the teams in the conference, but that should make both Texas and A&M happy.

    Re: Super Conferences

    I feel schools that are not a FB powerhouse will put up a fight when conferences try to go to 16 schools. Going to 16 team conferences will kill some football programs. It will also make some middle of the road programs bad and some above average programs average.

    I assume you are a conference university President?

    If it came down to academics and geography, like it should, we would fit in just fine with the Big 10

    LOL. Someone speculates on a scenario that benefits ISU and Hawk-trolls magically show up.

    Speculation isn't so fun when it doesn't **** on ISU and benefit Iowa is it? Tool.

    In academics and geography we are a great fit with the Big 10. But we'd be kidding ourselves if we thought that mattered.

    Is this because being an AAU member in the B10 is optional now?
