Staying at 11 would have been great, except swapping out PSU for UNL. It's not that I don't like having PSU on board - I do. But for the greater good of CFB, they would serve as a nice anchor for an Eastern Conference. With Rutgers and all that. ND too.

So the conference with UNL in place of PSU could have still been

FL was moving the ball early by going to Chris Doering the slot. I think he caught 5 passes on their first 3 possessions, when McBride swapped coverage to put Tyrone Williams on him from his usual field corner positon...and then Chris Doering was lost to the forgotten annals of history.
Ehhh, he still holds the SEC career record for receiving TDs, so.....yeah.

I'm not sure it's being full of themselves, it's just valuing different things.  I wouldn't trade MSUs 2014 Rose Bowl for a shot at the national title.  Most of us we're just raised to believe the Rose Bowl was the goal, and a national title was a nice other thing some people voted on.
You don't see this as completely backwards in hindsight?!?

The fact that the Big Ten and PAC-whatever held out after the rest of the country was ready to move on is all the evidence you need that they were slaves to tradition and ASTONISHINGLY, valued the RB over the national freaking championship.




Backwards.

Nah, if I just cared who was best, I'd stop watching college football all together.  I prefer college football because it's different.  And the less dofferdif it becomes, it follows that the less I pay attention to it.  It's just become more and more a crappy version of the NFL each year.  To each his own though, I'm not going to tell someone else what they should or shouldn't value.

Nor I, but luckily for you, the players themselves don't share your opinion.  They play to win, to be the best, and don't let traditional hokem cloud anything.

I've been saying this for years. This they do. Every game, no matter where, nor against who.

That'd been fine if Mizzou could have tagged along with UNL.The Big Ten & ND are booth too proud to acquiesce to the other.Though I do think down the road ND will bite the bullet on their preferential treatment and have to join a conference - much to their uppity chagrin

What they try to do vs what they actually do.
What they're supposed to do vs the reality of 21 year olds.

Is the pursuit of a championship determination process what is making it more like the NFL though? All the other divisions have a playoff format, and IDK that they could be considered crappy NFL knockoffs.

Missou is a mixed bag as a potential addition for the BIG. Its the only D1 program in a fairly-large state with two substantial metro areas, but IDK that it delivers either one. In KC, Missou football would rate fourth in terms of interest behind the Chiefs, Royals and KU, and maybe fifth, behind Sporting. As a Big 12 member, they rarely sold out their modest-sized stadium. If you brought them in with Nebraska and KU as a package deal, that might change some. 
I would be curious to know if its TV drawing power has increased since joining the SEC.
