I’m freaking out.
Because I care.
College football, as I wrote a month ago, is about to have a revolution.
“But if you go carryin’ pictures of Chairman Mao/You ain’t gonna make it with anyone anyhow.”
But I digress.
Because I’m freaking out.
They are talking about a 16-team Big Ten now with four pods and a playoff involving four teams in semis and then a championship game. Uh, student athletes, how ya feeling about this?
And the SEC will follow suit. You know the best conference in football isn’t going to go with the status quo and just say, “Sure, Big Ten, er, Big 16, uh, what do you want to be called again? Whatever, take the markets and enjoy. We’ll just stay provincial. Boiled peanuts?”
And we will all go along with it because we like our Kool-Aid sweetened with atmosphere.
So let’s relax and enjoy the inevitable and look at the new SEC. (Since it won’t be all Southeastern teams, do we revert back to the old Southern Conference moniker? Stay tuned.)
Nobody’s going unbeaten in this division. And it’s no picnic in hoops.
Brutal, but the West is tougher.
I think this all hinges on whether or not the Big Ten convinces Nebraska to come aboard. And from what I’m hearing, it’s likely.
“We all want to change the world.”
