    I thought we needed 12 teams to have a title game...?

    Yeah and I don't see other conferences signing off on the Big XII having a championship game with only 10 teams. I posted that because it's just an old man's ramblings as far as I'm concerned because it won't happen without 12 teams.

    I would love for the North to stay around with OSU. Maybe only play 7 conference games.

    It would be awesome and the best case for ISU, ergo, it has 0% chance of happening.

    I'd be curious to find out what kind of revenue the Big 12 title game generates on average. It's always a prime time game, with good advertising. I don't know how much it makes, but you'd think that there would be at least some monetary incentive to have one.

    Yeah pretty sure he was just being a smartass... The article mentions us being able to petition for a conference championship game.

    I believe it's also the highest rated conference championship game TV-wise

    He just wants to schedule four D1AA teams. If the league is small enough that you can play a round robin schedule, why wouldn't you? If just makes sense. I know it's a tougher schedule and that goes against Snyder's personal philosophy, but he just needs to stop thinking out loud. At least he's like 90 years old so he won't be coaching much longer, right?

    Re: Kansas State Coach Bill Snyder wants 5 team Divisions, Big12 Title Game

    Title game with 10 teams doesn't make sense. He just want room to schedule one more Pacific. Have a round robin and you'll have a champion. It's so clear cut. Win the most games, win the league. If there is a tie, then the head to head is the tie break.

    If you had a 18 team league and only played your division, then a title game would be epic. Otherwise it's only for cash and screws up BCS and national title game chances. I would have to look but I'm guessing more times a team has played themselves out then played themselves into a better BCS or national title game.
