    Bill Snyder wants at Big 12 title game

    Here's a quote from his presser today. Interesting stuff. I appreciate the coach going against the norm on this one.

    I just know, speaking on behalf of myself and our program, I think it's been very beneficial to Kansas State University, Snyder said. I see a lot of schools in our conference that it's been a great benefit too. I like the concept. I think it's great for our conference. You see other conferences now that are moving in that direction that didn't have a championship thing. I think they see the value of it. It's a little harder in the situation that we're in right now, and I can understand both sides of the discussion, but, you know, it's my personal feelings that I enjoy that. It's been good for Kansas State. I appreciate it and always have. I thought it was a great conference as well.

    Of course he likes it. It's the only way they have ever made a BCS game.

    Re: Bill Snyder wants at Big 12 title game

    I agree with Bill. The existing Big XII format is the best shot for schools like Mizzou, KU, KSU ans ISU to make a BCS bolw. If you can win the North Divison (relativley easy the past decade) and pull off an upset of the South Champion - Voila- Your are in a BCS bowl. Under the new round robin format it will be very difficult.

    Re: Bill Snyder wants at Big 12 title game

    KSU would have to beat Nebby first.

    BoPe says he has a better defense potential than last yewar with the three pros and two signed agents leaving. They will need it with a rust bucket armed qb.

    It also cost them a shot at the national title in '98.

    Here are more notes from Snyder's press conference. Some Missouri stuff as well.

    Considering that the NCAA requires 12 teams for a championship game, and that the Big 12 will only have ten teams after this year, yes, it will be "a little harder" to have a championship game in the future...

    You can still petition for a waiver.

    Re: Bill Snyder wants at Big 12 title game

    This conference isn't going to survive very long with only 10 teams. We must add 2 more and then get the conference championship game back.

    He may be, but it is a very good point. The big12 championship game is awesome.

    The last 2 years I have been out of the country watching it, and it was even a big deal there.

    Yeah, the Big Ten (40 years) and Pac-10 (32 years) didn't survive very long with 10 teams.

    If you didn't realize this already but the conferences are changing. Soon enough, the Big 10 will be at 14+ teams, the Pac 10 will be at 16 teams and the ACC or SEC will most likely be that big as well.
