Ugh. There's no way they can keep the Atlantic/Coastal clusterfark divisions, is there?
Maybe V Tech is setting this up as their excuse to justify accepting an offer from the SEC?
Going North/South could create a competitive balance. More importantly for the northern schools would be the loss of a guaranteed game in Florida every other year and how this might affect recruiting. The better question is whether it makes sense to add SU and Pitt to the current divisions or to rework them. If we kept the current conference divisions, I would like to SU to either be placed in the same division as BC or have BC be a permanent cross-over game.
VPI wants no part of the proposed 'North' division because that would put them back to a middle of the pack team like they were in the Big East. How many titles did VPI win when they were in the Big East?!?! Yeah, that's what I remember too.
That is what will happen because it is easy. Plus, if there is the possibility of a 16 team league, there is no need to get radical until it is finalized.Much ado about nada. In the grand scheme of things this is a very minor issue.
Keep 'em where they are & split the newbies by putting 1 in each division. Simple.
I caught this show heading home from work last night and he also said he would be in favor of a 10 game conference schedule. It would mean the elimination of the guaranteed games.
sorry, should have put quotes around guaranteed. that was his words. felt that it would be unfair because of some of the traditional ooc games, i.e, florida/fsu, ga tech/georgia, sc/clemson. those games aren't going away.Just the opposite. It'll mean the elimination of interconference games. No one will ever give up cupcake games. I think we should lobby Penn State using that. If they don't join us, they may never get to play a game on the east coast again.
