Wouldn't you want 4 conferences? Or 6 at most, with the two higher seeded champions getting a bye in the "playoffs?" I don't really see the benefit to having 5.

Well, for me, whatever it takes to get a sensible playoff system. The subjectivity of college ball no longer matches the diversity of good teams.

Of the five I listed, who would you drop or who would you add?

Five could work, I guess, if you allowed 6 playoff spots, because then you could have an "at-large" spot for the bottom half of the league.

Check this out...

"But who’s to say the SEC might not invite both and then stop at 15 schools? Three divisions of five teams each. The two best teams in the BCS rankings meet in Atlanta for the league title. It’s possible. If SEC accountants crunch the numbers and find that the league’s school would make more cash with 15 schools than with 16, you better believe Slive’s group would consider it."

It doesnt matter because a playoff isnt happening. Period. Just like the expansion of conferences, its all about the money.

huh? You have three divisions for no reason, in that only two play for the title still based on a silly subjective scale? No thanks.

I wish someone would explain why the super conferences are needed. Around here we are winning crystal balls already! Will the SC's help everyone catch up to us? If so, how does it help us? It appears that except for TCU and Utah that everyone who potentially joins a 'SC' already had a shot at the title game just by winning their games. Please enlighten me someone, cuz I don't see why college football 'has' to do this. I respect the fact that is happening, but I don't get it at all. Thanks guys and gals!!!!!!

Me too. One thing that makes the SEC special is the fact that -with the exception of ARK- you can drive to most every away game. In the PAC 10 you need an airline ticket. As an airline pilot, that is good for MY business, but as a football fan, I prefer to tailgate...
