Discussion Topic: What will the rumored college conference moves mean for college football?
With reports that Nebraska may be leaving the Big 12 for the Big 10 (err new Big 12 I guess it would be called), and the potential dismemberment of the current Big 12 college football is in for a shake up. Also with the potential for the new rumored Pac-16 (doesn’t really roll off the tongue the same way) what are the benefits and drawbacks to this ‘new world order’?
A few hot button topics:
What does this do for the regional rivalries that we have always seen in the Big 10?
And will it be officially called the Big 12 Part II?
Speaking of regional integrity should the Pac-16 still have “Pac” in it when some of their schools are thousands of miles away from the Pacific coast?
Should the Pac-16 have two automatic bowl bids?
What will happen to the remaining Big-12 schools? Particularly in basketball where Baylor, Kansas, Kansas State and Missouri are all strong teams?
How will this move affect these all of these schools when it comes to basketball?
