College Football Landscape Here's a link to an article that hints at something very interesting: http://www.cbssports.com/collegefoo...-trickledown-effect?tag=pageRow;pageContainer While driving home from work today, I heard this guy on sports talk radio and he was discussing the potential changes that will occur when the Big 10 decides to show it's hand in going to a 12, 14, or 16 team conference. While all this is just rumors at this point in time, it has huge implications if these things play out even close to what he suggests. Suggested Scenario: Big 10 expands to 16 teams and looks to become a super conference. SEC Commissioner Mike Silve is already on record in this article as saying there's no way the SEC will stand pat if the Big 10 does this. What's being rumored right now is that if the Big 10 expands, the SEC would put targets on a couple huge schools, Texas, Texas A&M, Florida St, and Miami. Could you imagine a conference that consisted of the SEC teams with those other schools added to the mix? Like I said, these are just rumors at this point, but it doesn't seem that far fetched for this to happen if the Big 10 makes the first move. It seems crazy that Texas would leave the Big 12, but if the Big 10 poached a team or two from the Big 12, that conference would be at a crossroads. The SEC is the 2nd largest revenue generator behind the Big 10 so I don't think it'd be too difficult for either of those conferences to grab a couple of choice schools with the money they have to throw around.
