A Conference That Makes Sense...

I am not sure if any of you caught ESPN's proposed "reconferencing" (that is a word now) which would take the top 40 teams per their "draft" and slot them geographically with a couple of exceptions.  The most interesting aspect of this is the rivalry it would immediately create between Texas and LSU.  Every year the Horns would play the following:

Arkansas

Missouri

Kansas

Mississippi

Nebraska

LSU

Oklahoma

Oklahoma State

Texas A&M

Add a couple of non-conference games and you have one very respectable season year in and year out.

Moreover, when you scan the other conferences, you find Boise St right in USC's face along with Utah and Texas Tech headed out west.  I found the read intriguing and wishful.  But I realize that we have as much a chance of this happening as Boise St. does of knocking off OUsux in a BCS game. 

I long for the day when conference fuddy duddies stop worrying about "how things have always been" and how the BCS crowns a deserving champion every year...except last year, and the year Auburn ran the table in the SEC and got shut out of the national title game.  I hate this system.  It is a complete joke and a farce. 

40 Teams

4 Superconferences

4 Contenders

1 Legitimate National Champion

 

Now THAT is some change I could believe in...now give me back my taxes!
