I don't like being in a conference with West Virginia.

Doesn't bother me, other than the losses they keep handing us.

I like West Virginia

They add flavor

They won't let me give blood anymore. The burnt orange color scares the hell out of the doctors.

I like West Virginia.  But their location is a big negative for the conference, both short-term and long-term, I think.

I notice some programs previously not willing to travel much OOC now are scheduling distance opponents.  One article suggested it was because ADs think an 8 team playoff is in the offing (I'm not at all confident about that).

I hope it ain't so.

An 8-team playoff, that is.

I think the 8 team thing is a decade away, or more, so meh.  I like 4, and I could be talked into 5 or 6 maybe.

I think an 8-team playoff is inevitable and is more like 4-6 years away.  One main reason-- it'll make even more money.  Secondary reason, it would allow auto-bids to G5 teams and relieve some of the anti-trust pressure that grows stronger every year against the powers that be of college football.  It's really a win-win for "big football."

For the average fan, it has some advantages and some disadvantages.  There are things I don't love about it, but there are things I don't love about the current playoff.  And the BCS before that.  And the Alliance before that.

I still like the old bowl system for the most part.  Everything has pros and cons.

If I could wave a magic wand I'd go back to the conference alignments and bowl affiliations from about 1980.   I'd also transport ESPN back to about 1990 magically kill off the 24/7 sports news cycle.

I agree with you, Utee.
But that means you sound like an old geezer.

I'm definitely becoming an old geezer.  Better than the alternative I suppose! :)

Now y'all get off my lawn.

Texas and Oklahoma are doing some serious OOC scheduling, are they not?  Of course it takes two to tango, and I imagine this isn't really a change for them, I know both played Ohio State in the past.  Anyway, I like marquis matchups, even if they don't happen until 2076.
