Good Riddance if so. All the charter football schools have jumped ship, and everyone is trying to leave like a rat from a sinking ship.

If they do leave, then the ACC and Big Ten will be able to pick and choose from the scraps if they want to move up to 16. Does the Big 12 try to grab two more and try to get back up to 12? Does the Pac-12 make a grab for BYU and Boise State and move up to 14? Does the SEC try to grab GT, Miami (FL), Clemson, and/or FSU from the ACC?

Could this be the dawn of four 16-team mega conferences? I'm starting to think so.

If the Big 12 is sure the current teams are firm, I would stay at ten. I know that means no championship game but it does mean you play everyone in your conference. I know I am in the minority but that means more to me. It's heresy but I think the Big 12 was the strongest conference from top to bottom this year (Kansas excepted). Nine bowl games and ten teams in the conference.

Having said that, there will be pressure if the SEC and Big Ten continue to grow to do something.

I think the more interesting aspect of this news is on the basketball side. If you're the seven basketball only schools then why not beat football to the punch and create a 16-team super basketball conference. Start with those seven teams and then add other basketball programs that don't have Division I football teams like Butler, Xavier, Creighton, Pennsylvania, etc.

If anything, it helps get rid of them as an automatic qualifier for the bowl games no one wants to see. I hate the fact they are using the "academic" argument when its clear this is all about the money. If anything, you are starting to see the basketball programs rebelling which was going to happen at some point.

Mrs. JJD has a friend who works for a local weekly paper and they have a radio show, and for their Super Bowl XLVI preview they invited Izzy Jo (who just turned 9) to come in and share her thoughts on the big game.
