    What a joke. Can everyone just get a do-over and go back to the original configuration from when the BCS was constructed? Money hungry administrators have ruined regional rivalries and now fans won't be able to travel to road games.


    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”

    Oh, sure they will. I mean, how could you not want to fly from San Diego to Connecticut in late November just to watch a football game??

    I really wish I could see this actually happening. Even if we could go back to pre-2010 conferences and set a team cap at 12 would be much better. I can see re-alignment collapsing under it's own weight, but I don't really relish sitting through the next decade waiting for it to happen.

    They're going to rename this, right?

    I don't see it happening unless they start treating the football and basketball conference as seperate but connected entities. The Big East basketball name has too much cache for them to walk away from that.

    I feel the same and I feel better about waiting because I think the big XII is fairly stable at this point.

    I think the SEC will be the first to crack.

    Whomever goes to 16 first will be the one to crack.

    My gut says that's the sec taking VA Tech and FSU.

    They will be done in by their out of control hubris.

    I have to imagine there are a lot of SEC fans ****** that they will play long-time rivals less often for the sake of adding Mizzou and A&M. Not that they are necessarilly terrible teams that will never compete, but you'll still have the Florida, Bama, and LSU's of the conference coming to town less often.
