If any of you think Utah and Colorado were invited to the Pac-12 for purely academic reasons, you're not paying attention. They were invited first and foremost for their TV market sizes (Colorado = Denver, Utah = Salt Lake City). Academics may have played a part, but it was NOT the main reason. Like always, money was the main reason....TV market size means more eyeballs on more TV sets means more ad revenue means more money charged for carrying the Conferences games.
SEC FAN, most of the schools in your beloved conference schedule shit opponents out of conference and when they actually don't, it's usually someone they play at home. MAJOR kudos to LSU for playing Oregon last year though, even if playing in Dullass did favor them somewhat
. Now that there's going to be a playoff with a selection commitee, I think the days of schools loading up on FCS/crappy FBS schools is about over. An upset 2 point loss to say Iowa for example with an otherwise 10-1 record, I am hopeful will carry more weight with a commitee than an 11-0 record and a blowout of say Northern Iowa.
For those of you that want to see Price not be the starter next year, it sounds like the competition will be opened up from what Sark was quoted as saying in this morning's Steve Kelley column titled Keith Price's play guarantees his future isn't guaranteed
