    Big 12-SEC agree to post season bowl game...

    Interesting from CBS this morning. New agreement for football apparently. Just saw it on CBS site. Things are moving fast!

    Isn't this referred to as the National Championship?

    No. Going of the last six years, that would be the SEC championship.

    I doubt this will actually ever happen.


    Don't confuse hope for a plan.

    This is nothing more than power positioning from the two best football conferences.

    Last year is up for debate, but how many years is SEC #2 better than B12 #1? Obviously, over the past several years their #1 was better. So no, except maybe last year the national championship was not necessarily the SEC championship.

    That's pretty much my thought. These two leagues realize they're the top two football conferences and they let a natural advantage and partnership slip away while the Big Ten/Pac 12 embraced what they had and benefit from it.

    That said, please no SEC regular season scheduling deal like Big Ten/Pac 12.

    9 Big 12 games, SEC game, Iowa game, UNI, permanent schedule. It's a tired old subject but that would be the end of the ISU/Iowa game and I'd rather keep playing that game than Mississippi State who we'd usually get if the ACC/Big Ten basketball challenge is any indicator.

    And long overdue since the #3 and #4 league do the same thing on an annual basis. They even throw a parade in honor of it.

    People are wising up and I like it.

    If the Big XII & SEC champs are in the upcoming final four (and the chances are they will. It's been over ten years since the Big XII & SEC have been out of the BCS top four) , "two other worthy teams will be selected."

    Talk that it will rotate between Jerry World & the Superdome.

    As has been said before, this is about consolidating power, not a bowl game.

    This marginalizes the ACC, another reason to cause powerful football schools to be worried.

    Fans of Big 10 schools still pay attention to the national championship?

    That's like a Cubs fan paying attention to the World Series

    Also, give it a decade or so before this game and the Rose Bowl are cemented as the two national semifinals when the Pac-12, Big Ten, Big 12, and SEC leave the NCAA to create their own four-conference superassociation.
