So because the Big Slow was stupid enough to add a conference game to the schedule everyone else should too? Was adding a 9th conference game required by the NCAA or did the Big Slow add it on their own?


Is the NCAA preventing the Big Slow from doing scheduling that benefits their programs or is it the Big Slow doing it to themselves?


Why should any conference do something that doesn't benefit it's member schools simply because another conference was stupid enough to do it first?

They added it to get the bump up in pay from FOX who was sucking hind teat on content! I'm sure ESPN chunked some extra change in the hat as well.

So perhaps they should direct their complaints towards their media partners.

I know the impact of money. No debate there. Maybe the SEC will pony up in 2023 or something to get more SEC games for the ESPN/CBS deals. Or maybe they'll enjoy the easy road to the playoffs.

The CFP standards for selection...
--conference championships
--strength of schedule
--head-to-head
--opponents' results

They are ignoring those though. Instead, they rely on the "eye ball" test (which is merely a survey of past recruiting rankings and NFL draft lists) and the almighty "0 or 1" in the loss column.

The Big Ten and Pac-12 heard the CFP's supposed standards and stepped up (and yes, they made more money too). But the CFP committee gave Bama a pass this year. (And they cashed it in BIG TIME! Kudos for them! Jeers for the CFP!)

those aren't the standards. Those are in play when teams are close. That's the thing that folks like you want to completely overlook. By giving up 55 to Iowa, things weren't close.
