    Letís work this from the backend.

    There are currently 131 FBS programs moving to 132 next year. So letís say they want to get to 4 main conferences in this division. Then assume that each conferences has 20 programs each, or 80 total programs.

    Who are the 32 that have to be removed to start?

    Or if the goal is 3 super conferences with 24 programs each, who are the 50 that have to be removed?

    Will the cut off be about money or attendance or enrollment? Example Liberty is up and coming and have lots of money. South Florida and Central Florida are two of the top 10 enrollment schools in the country. USC, Notre Dame, and a couple of other private schools have relatively small enrollments compared to the Big 10 schools they are joining. What happens to the Military Schools?

    That's not really a goal. That's not what is happening.

    Look moron, the political example is just that an example of how to wield power. Nothing political is above board on either side, both sides are as dirty, corrupt, bought off, etc., as the other, the difference is the current crop of democrats understand how to wield power, when you have the power you don't compromise. I do believe Sankey understands that too, that is good for us.

    Whatever happens if it has built from the conferences that already exist no one will be left out. It would've been ridiculous to think that Kansas State Purdue or Oregon State or Mississippi State would be left out. If they do a having a have/have not future in college football at division One it will be a much much smaller group of schools at the top and included in this future league.

    Whatever anybody says right now it's bullshit because I don't know it's going to be in CFB the future. We will first have to have the NIL go back and forth within college football to see who makes it and who doesn't.

    When the dust is all settled and all the controversies, fall-out, and fights are through and we have had all the up coming scandals and lawlessness happen then CFB will go through and figure out what to do with college football... as a group of conferences and programs with some sort of leader ship at the top whatever that may end up being.

    Agree, if there's one thing these clowns have proven, it's that they have no goal. They simply react in order to grab short term money.

    I agree that college sports are beginning to shake out into only two conferences (the SEC and the B1G).

    I think we can all agree that football is the sport that drives revenue and interest the most for all of college sports.

    Thus, the SEC should be working now on adding Notre Dame and Clemson (two major football powers from the ACC) to the conference.

    Additionally, the SEC should eventually try to get Ohio State and Penn State from the B1G. (Ideally, this would happen very soon after getting Notre Dame and Clemson to join the SEC.)

    If the SEC could somehow do that, then the SEC might be able to take over the whole thing (i.e., all of college sports).

    With streaming, TV markets arenít as important as they used to be. Network/Streaming services want match ups and believe it or not, but a fully-functioning Air Raid offense is very attractive for drawing eyeballs. If Leach gets rolling, I think Mississippi State is safe in a NFL like break off from the NCAA.

    Why would tOSU and Penn State leave the Big10 when theyíll make more money there than the SEC can offer?

    What plant have all of you been smoking?The SEC is in the Catbird Seat of Media. What the advantage of making a superdooper conference when you already are a superdooper conference. Give it a break. When would the Big Ten give up their identity?? The ACC? Come on.

    Exactly! Is there one more school out there, left to grab, that would increase viewership for sec football? Notre Dame is it. Adding anymore schools, would be for basketball reasons or no reason at all.

    You are on point until ESPN wrestles or does a hostile takeover of the SEC. That day is coming and then the SEC is the ESPN league, then the point of diminishing returns is off the table. The same scenario comes into play when Fox does its hostile takeover of the BIG and the BIG becomes the Fox league. Just like the NFL AFC vs NFC?

    I'm not saying that Ohio State and Penn State will leave the B1G. Rather, I'm saying the SEC should go after them, after adding Notre Dame and Clemson.

    Of course, where the best money will be made (SEC or B1G) is an ever evolving issue.

    Would Ohio State and Penn State want to play against the top football teams in the country in the most lucrative conference, or wouldn't they? I think they would.

    Certainly, we'll have to see how everything shakes out.

    The ACC is doomed.

    However, that's just my opinion, and I could be wrong.
