    I realize this is early discussions, but this article left me with a lot of questions. Any thoughts on what would happen to the 25+ bowls and how the playoff teams would be selected? It seems like under a four team playoff, there would be even less chance of a mid major moving in.

    Exactly. In fact, I would have to say it's pretty much what I was hoping for.... :smile2:

    Larry wants what he wants, I guess. I'm having a hard time reconciling his Rose Bowl demands with his playoff demands. I hope he realizes that a playoff probably ends the Big-10/Pac-12 match-up in the Rose Bowl.

    EDIT: I'd much rather have a playoff, I'm just not sure Scott can get what he wants this time, and what he wants isn't even clear.

    I think what the Pac-12 wants (along with the B1G) is that the winners of our conferences play each other in the Rose Bowl and whichever team wins plays in the national championship game.

    You're right Nik, I just figured it out in my head. Division winners in each conference play for the conference championships, winners meet in the Rose Bowl, winner meets X for national title. The problem is that there are currently six BCS conferences, and with similar pairings, we'd have three teams left.

    In other words, get ready for Texas, OU and company to be joining the Pac-16 shortly. godammit

    So, we're back to the 64 teams divided into 4 power conferences of 16, most likely consisting of SEC, PAC, BIG, and ACC. Otherwise, I can't see any reason why the other teams would agree to the Rose Bowl winner (BIG vs PAC) going to the national championship each year.

    Since the Bowls are not sanctioned NCAA events they lack much standing outside history.

    IMHO, the move to play the Big 10 yearly, along with the grind of expansion puts the writing on the wall for some kind of playoff. And since the Big 10 and Pac are so intertwined breaking off the Pac and the Rosebowl from the BCS would probably pull the B10 along.

    Bet your bottom dollar that the PresPacs will drive this into the Rose Bowl.

    Maybe some of those other bowls will survive on the scraps left out sort of like how the NIT survives...
