"If you're not part of the SEC, Big12, BigTen or Pac12, you're on the outside with your face pressed against the big-boy glass"
Clemson will end up the orange headed stepchild of college football..
thinking Slive and big12 commish met in the texas book depository building in dallas. looks like rose bowl winner vs sec/12 bowl winner play a plus one ~ two weeks into january.......in other news the new mountain-east conference has app state and clem so far and is taking applications on facebook
Wow.......dreams may really come true. If the four conferences do align, we are witnessing the beginning of the end of Clemson football. Yes! This is truly big, IF it happens.
We should send Bobby Bowden a Christmas card every year for turning down the SEC. We've taken our lumps over the last 19 years, but I am so glad we are not on the outside looking in.
I'm a COLLEGE tootball fan first and a conference football fan second. I dont have the hate for Clem that some here do and certainly not the hate that a whole bunch of the nuts up there have for USC but CF has been following the money path for 30+ years and it just gains steam the furher we go. Leave the playoff crap to the pros and stick totally to bowls. True in this instance with the SEC/B12 Bowl things are controllable for the average fan who travels. (It's) even reasonable for the FourTeam playoff, however it gives TV an even tighter choke-hold on the sport we all love.
All that considered and among the choices apparently offered I would go with the Top 4 teams by some formula to be determined. We have a good track record of what works and what doesnt. Seem more obvious to rate teams than to rate conferences and certainly better than to select 4 permanent conferences of 16. That seems destructive to the game to me. I've been thinking about taking the couch rather than the trip for awhile now and some among ny GC friends have shared the same...TheBig Money aspect has a lot to do with this. Yes, the BIg Change may come but I think it will be destructive in the long run.
Hope for the best.
