    Andy Staples Floats 16-team "Super Conference" Idea

    Many, many months ago, well before the "conference realignment" talk began to heat up, yours truly mentioned that possibly the best way to solve the national championship problem in college football would be to have the most successful college football programs form a number of 16-team "super conferences." In a recent article on SI.com, Andy Staples has proposed a very similar idea. His idea is to have the 64 most prominent football schools leave the NCAA and form eight "super conferences."

    I certainly don't agree with everything Staples suggests in his article, but I still contend the idea of "super conferences" is where we are heading in college football.

    Here is a link to the article:

    As pointed out before, ISU gets replaced by Miss State, even though we're the 62nd earner.
