“Kansas may wind up number one in these polls, but that would be so unfair to Texas...” -- Len Elmore, 2/13/11
9 and 4 at Texas sucks!
- Jeff Howe
I am very pleased with my small investment in 247 by way of my yearly fee...you guys are really good
How does that affect Notre Dame and their faculty? Notre Dame will go where they see the money and, AND the freedom to operate freely while still being in a conference.
Love adding Clemson and the Noles. Wow, all that aggie talk about not going to UT as the Big12 is dying would have to cease now wouldn't it? Damn fun and exciting conference right there.
I thought A&M left!
275-0 scoring margin

If I can chime in, I think adding FSU and Clemson would raise the payout to approximately 24 to 26 Million. They are on the infamous (cool kids list) .
Those failing to prepare are preparing to fail!
We would be a sick Football and Baseball conference. I'm so excited at this possibility.

Please put our gold or green helmet instead of that white one.
Don't like that white one??? I sorta did, especially when the dreads of RG III were flowing...
Appreciate it. Lots of losses in the helmet. New unis next year will hopefully eliminate them.
Not that great traditionally but Clemson has made the NCAA tournament 3 of the last 4 years in basketball.
They are putting a descent amount of money into there basketball and baseball. They definitely seem to be willing to spend the money in football with the new coaches salaries and facility upgrades that have been completed and are in the works.
This from one of the FSU sites
I love the #3 option you present. In the long run i like the 4 team pod system bc i think this is what the SEC will do at some point. I feel 10(get to play all teams so true champion) or 12 team conferences are the best to determine a true conf champion and all systems are better than the 14 team conf.
I know Lousiville is a good basketball school but this is run by football so if comes down to Louisville vs a Pitt of GT or even a Maryland, i think most of the other ACC schools or even a team like BYU would/should get the nod.
Lets assume Fsu and Clemson do come to Big 12 what are the other options?
a)stay at 12 teams and get a conf title game.
b)add 2-4 more teams.
If we add ND then Pitt, GT and Miami will pay anything to join us.
We dont add ND and maybe 2 others of the following Pitt, GT, Miami, Louisville, etc would want to join. Louisville wants to come no matter what but there are at least 10 teams more deserving than them.
If Louisvile ends up in the same side of a 12 or 14 team conf with Ku, Iowa St and Ksu then that becomes a much weaker side of the conference, similar to what we had in the old big 12 though i hope not as bad.
I feel its a 12 team or 16 team situation.
It is possible for Pac, Big 10, Big 12, Sec, Acc to go to 16 teams. It just means that teams like Byu, Louisville, Cincinnati, etc will all be in a bigger conf and Big east will not exist and a few smaller conferences will be diminished. Only 2 logical geographical choices for Pac are Byu and Boise at this point but as the Aggie t-shirt clearly showed us all, geography isn’t too much of a priority.
I hate the unfairness that ND gets currently with the Bcs and what they will probably get with BCS playoff system. 9 wins is all it takes for them to get in is a joke. Should have been10-2 minimum.
Brian E, thanks for the information! Keep it coming!!
Bob in Houston, great post!
