This guy says that the B1G, Pac, ACC "Alliance" is about stopping the 12-team playoff.

If he's right, good!  Let's go back to bowls and polls!

It's a bit of an academic slam on the new SEC, justifiable generally.

There it is.

ACC, BIG TEN AND PAC-12 ANNOUNCE HISTORIC ALLIANCE - Big Ten Conference

They made an announcement.

Did they say anything? Didn't really look like it...

Dave Wannstedt says he has heard of this discussion about realignment at Fox meetings:

(19) Dillon Davis on Twitter: "Fox Sports analyst and former Pitt football coach Dave Wannstedt went on @670TheScore in Chicago this morning and said he heard the following Big 12 news at the Fox meetings last week in Phoenix: - OSU and KSU to the Pac-12 - WVU to the ACC - KU and Iowa State to the Big Ten" / Twitter

So, if all that happens, the Big 12 dissolves. Then OU and UT don't have to pay anything. Correct?

Why would the Pac 12 take KSU over Texas Tech? 

I'm calling BS on that one.

I am a total SEC homer but I try to be a rational SEC homer and I must say, this whole Alliance idea seems to be folks cutting off their noses to spite their faces. If this is about television eyeballs, why in the world would the Big 10 cut off the SEC for these other two? Maybe I am nuts but I think FOX would rather have OSU- Bama, UGA/ UT/ OU/ LSU/UF than almost any other matchup available, especially with how many tvs get turned on in the Southeast. But perhaps SEC teams cannot appear on FOX for some reason.  I do not remember an SEC-Big 10 matchup on FOX. Anyhow, this will be interesting to see how this plays out.

Hopefully it is a classic case of brawn vs brain where the SEC is playing Checkers while the "Alliance" is playing Chess. 

While the SEC flexes and admires itself in the mirror, the brainiacs are devising some elaborate scheme to completely turn the tables on them.

Yeah, that's all fun and games until the wedgies start.

I would not be at all certain that talk at Fox will consummate with a deal on realignment. That said, to some degree the networks seem to be in charge of realignment while the presidents and chancellors hold veto power over realignment teams. 

ISU and KU being AAU members makes a difference to Big Ten presidents and chancellors.

While the brawn will win some battles, the brain typically wins the war. 

The SEC just flexed and picked up something heavy in order to show off and look tough and everyone is impressed in the moment, but in the long run they are still a big dumb tough guy who is going to be completely out of his element once tactical strategies come into play. 

They might find themselves as a glorified NFL Minor League, completely cut off from the CFB Universe.

Yes, that's true.  But I don't see all those moves happening.  Maybe none of those moves, realistically.
