We did away with first page rules a long time ago.

I'd like to take this opportunity to elevate the Big 10 to #2 status.

1. SEC
2. Big 10
3. Dylon
4. ACC
5. Pac-10
6. The shell of the former Big 12

The SEC already gets two automatic BCS bids. That's no secret.

You explain to me how 16 teams is a good idea. Explain it, please because I've yet to see a single viable explanation for why it is a good idea. TV markets for nationally known teams like OU, UT, and most SEC teams mean jack****. Those games are already nationally televised.
When did I say the SEC was going to go to 16? I didn't. What I said was, the threat of other conferences going to 16 is part of what prompted the SEC to act. Going in, everyone was saying that the SEC would hold at 12 unless it looked like another conf might go to 16 which would have been a threat to the SECs standing.

Why is 16 teams a good idea? Well, that depends on the 16 teams. If going to 16 teams drastically expands your TV market like it would have for the PAC 10 AND gets you an automatic 2 BCS bids PLUS a championship game... then yeah, going to 16 teams was a great idea. Adding 2 time zones and some of the largest TV markets in the nation to your viewership would have been a huge deal.

As for the comment about Texas, OU and SEC games being televised nationally... yeah they are. But that's not the point. Just being televised nationally doesn't mean you can't get MORE viewers. There's more than one channel on our TV. People are more interested in conference games. So, if Texas is in the PAC10, more people in California will watch Texas games. More people in Texas would watch USC and Oregon and UCLA ect... More people watching in more markets means more advertizing revenue. That means a better TV deal for that conference.

And the SEC only gets 2 BCS bids now because we almost always lock up one of the at large bids because we are widely respected as the top conference. If the PAC10 goes to 16 and gets 2 automatic bids, that leaves just one at-large bid for everyone else to fight over. And per the current BCS rules, if Notre Dame wins 9 games or finishes in the top 16, they get that bid.

Saying that the WAC proves that 16 teams doesn't work is rediculous. The WACs failure only proves that nobody gives a crap about any of those teams. If the SEC expanded to 16 by adding Troy, Miss Valley, Memphis, and UAB that wouldn't work either. You can do 16, but you have to do it with the right teams.

Yea, I'm not sure how the WAC failing is a sign that 16 team conferences dont' work. The problem was that nobody really gave 2 ****s about any of the 16 teams.

Also, my proposed title was WAAAAAAAAAYYYYY better.

Some highlights from the UT press conference.

"I wont be discussing the Pac-10 offer"

"Ten is a good number. It used to be very common."

Oh.

"We dont have any new deals but we'll let the Big 12 handle that."


"ABC/ESPN been very helpful in all of this"

Apparently, there are no deals or anything. They just wanted public statements from everyone saying they are still in. Wow. Just wow.

I have a hard time believing the Texas 10 is going to get as good of a TV deal as Beebe is promising. They just lost the Denver market, one of their top 3 teams, and their conference championship game. The Big 12 isn't dead right now, but its on life support. This conference will not exist 5 years from now.

They will play all 9 teams in the conference. Wow. They are so ****ing epicly pathetic.

"Our conference is strong. When you play OU, A&M, K-State has been strong...we could get 2 BCS bids."

Wow... 9 conf games? Doesn't leave much flexability for scheduling OOC games. How many conf games did the Big 12 play before?

The only other conference that would take them would be the WAC or MWC.

Pretty sure they still carry an invite to the Pac-10. Probably arent happy over the Big 3 making ****tons more than they are and getting **** on even harder than before. I would consider their chances much better for success in the Pac-10 personally.
