It seems like the dust may finally be settling on NCAA re-alignment. Armageddon didn’t arrive to the extent it could have, but there is still a different landscape for next year. Three conferences added teams and three lost teams in a widespread shuffle driven almost entirely by money. There may still be a move or two, but where we are at right now is a logical stopping point, so hopefully things will stop for at least a while.
Wow! What a week in college football. Three teams have already announced their moves to a new conference, and more will follow. And it looks like the Big 12 will fall apart in the aftermath of Nebraska’s move.
Pac-10 gives Commissioner Scott authority to pursue expansion
The Pac-10 has given its commissioner Larry Scott the authority to look into adding more schools to the conference. Conference officials concluded Saturday that an expansion is worth looking into, but that adding new teams is not a must.
There is absolutely nothing wrong with watching college football on a Friday morning. In fact, I could get used to it. Neither the West Virginia – Pittsburgh nor the Nebraska – Colorado games were classics, but they were both entertaining and a good way to spend a day. I had Colorado to cover so I was pleased, but I am disappointed for them that they didn’t become bowl eligible. The Nebraska wins that I don’t have to worry about watching the Gator Bowl – the Huskers against an ACC team is not a recipe for a good game.
