Today we take our sticks and continue to beat the dead horse known as "Conference Expansion". Was the fallout good or bad for college football as a whole? Bird and I discuss while you decide.
Winfield: Good Cop
A 16-team conference creates issues, both logistically and fundamentally. How do you schedule? What about out-of-conference games? Do you have one division play only another division for fairness? What do you do with four division champions but no playoff in place? These all create problems that college football is simply not ready to handle. If you created a 16-team conference, you essentially have a league within itself and conference ties begin to break loose. Earlier this week furrer4heisman posed some questions to various SEC blogs. When asked Do you think the SEC should expand to 16 teams? Truzenzuzex of A Sea of Blue replied:
If 16-team conferences are ever going to be implemented it must be across the board and across all conferences for it to be a good thing for college football.
