Way too early Sports Illustrated mock draft has Arkansas quarterback Tyler Wilson going #1 overall next year. :az:

I would be stunned if it happened, but good to see national media sees Arkansas football isn't ending after recent events.

Thanks.  Sadly, A&M won by about 3,000 votes.

I feel sorry for the non-revenue teams, how many will just get cut when ads look at travel budgets

WTF will the OU commercial be about?

Lee Corse walking in on a bunch of male cheerleaders studying for their poultry science class?

Hearing a rumor that Clemson and Florida State are going to the Big 12. Anyone else hearing anything about this?

Also hearing UNC and a Virginia school to the SEC, either UVA or VT.

Gotta thing Big 12 picks up some of the scraps.  The remaining VA school and perhaps Duke?

College Football is dead for about 50% of fans after the 4 conference thing happens. Lots of schools about to be left outside in what becomes the new Division 1-AA. Including boatloads of ACC and east coast schools.

Fans: The BCS sucks! Give us a playoff!

ESPN & BCS Conferences: Sure, we'll have a power struggle and see which puzzle pieces will earn us the biggest television contracts. Then we'll blacklist all those teams like Boise State and TCU so they can definitely never have a shot.

I'm guessing Maryland could end up in the Big 10 with Syracuse, Rutgers, and Pitt.

Maybe, but I could see the ACC/Big East going all in on basketball.

Didn't realize they got out of the Big East deal. Replace with any other decent team that's been left out.

I went to a 1 aa school, and like college sports far less than I did in high school, but I like rooting for my school, so big time football isn't too appealing, then again, that's probably the majority of people (how many schools are really competitive year in an year out - 20?), even in the major conferences, you have Iowa state or Kansas, or oregon state, or inidina who nevere really play for anything not to mention the vast majority of schools in non bcs conferences

Well, the four teams you listed are already on the inside in the new model.

As it stands, you're looking at the majority of ACC and Big East teams getting left out of the new model. This will be fine for the schools that are inside, but it's going to suck for schools that are left out. It will be four mega-conferences playing each other for a playoff and no path for the new minor conference teams. Mega-conference teams won't bother scheduling tough OOC games at all.

I guess if your school is in you'll argue that CFB has been too watered down or something. It's a fair argument, but my favorite part of CFB has always been the underdogs and the upsets. They went to great lengths to even the playing field by limiting D1 scholarships but this will put the advantage back to the traditional schools.

Not to mention the implications that this will have to other college sports.

Those teams may be in the conferences, but they never actually compete- at the end of the day, it may be for the best for the schools left out, for me college sports was about rooting for fellow students- people I knew from class, people who lived in the same freshman dorm, and later frat brothers- most huge programs basically have you rooting for mercenaries who go to joke classes (if at all), live in atheletes dorms and aren't really students - at that point, you're rooting for a minor league pro team

That happens at a lesser extent all the way down in D3 schools.

And they are minor-leaguers. Might as well pay them since the schools are using their bodies and lives to get rich.

D3 kids tend to go to class, I know at my d1 aa school they did, and we didn't have atheletes dorms or separate meal plans for football players

As far as job training, it sucks- think how many college football players graduate ever year, and how many wind up playing pro- any trade school with those numbers would be shut down

No way Duke and UNC split.  IF FSU goes to the Big 12 (would prefer SEC) I would really want Clemson, Miami, and VT to come also.

They never though Mizzou and Kansas would split either.

There will still be a college football game though.  It just won't carry the "NCAA" tag.
