    according to the local fishwrap DP, Craig Thompson is expolring just such a merger. I guess a non-AQ superconference is better than a non-AQ conference. Of course, I take it with a grain of salt, it ithe DP after all, and the story was written by John Henderson, so FWIW...

    Heard the same yesterday. Speculation there was each of the 2 conferences would crown a champion with the winners going up against each other for a BCS spot. It´d be a 22-24 team conference.

    Ugh.

    That sounds like the 16-team WAC.

    So is the goal to be the first "super conference" and force the NCAA to recognize and give a spot in any playoff?

    This is like the merger of Sears and Kmart. Let's take a pile of crap and merge it with another pile of crap, so we can have a bigger pile of crap. A bigger pile of crap is more attractive than a smaller one right? Makes a lot of sense. Also, DBT may have something to say on this now.

    i think this is a decent option for them. it actually ought to be about 32 of the also-ran teams vying for 1 bcs spot, however. although i'd still grumble that some scrub team played a weak ass conference schedule and still got a bcs slot, at least it would be the best scrub team of 32. you'd have the 8 team division winners face off in semi- and then final game with the champ getting a bcs bid.
