How silly is it conferences without divisions are holding conference championship games? Or, I suppose that the Big 12 is since it's the only one with less than 12 members holding one?

There's a logic to it. Teams don't play home and home so a single game doesn't necessarily prove who is most deserving.

Because most of the value of the media contract is concentrated in the super-elite programs--Texas, Oklahoma. More schools don't grow the pie, they shrink everyone else's slice.

@ quo

True but they do play round robin, which is more than fair. Football conferences have never been double round robin except in the very old days with much smaller conferences. Imagine a scenario where Team A beats Team B by 50 but loses to them by 1 in the CCG. It's one thing in two division conferences but ridiculous in single division conferences.

I say BS on the elite name schools. They are old school, and most of them have falling to second fiddle like Miami florida. The hot name teams are in the G5, and adding any schools from the G5 would bring excitement to the conference. There are P5 schools that do not belong in P5 anymore while G5 schools who attract more of a tv following are getting the shaft. Schools should be paid for on tv performance in ratings instead of name brand.

A tiebreaker game is one thing if you want to ignore head-to-head for reasons like you brought up but a CCG with no divisions is silly.

What? I'm guessing you're in the wrong thread.

I am responding to JohnBragg about elite schools.

If it bothers you in football, does it bother you in other sports? Why should a conference that plays double round-robin in basketball even bother with a tournament?
