SEC & Big Ten partner to take control of CFB 👀 | Always College Football

  • čas přidán 20. 02. 2024
  • The SEC and Big Ten announced a joint partnership to address issues within college football and Greg McElroy is here to help explain it all. Will either conference be aggressive in future expansion? Will Notre Dame be forced to join a conference sooner rather than later? What is the future of the 12-team College Football Playoff (and automatic qualifiers) and so much more.
    0:00 Intro
    2:30 It is wild to think the SEC and Big Ten are working together
    6:00 It should not be 6 automatic qualifiers for the CFP
    8:30 College football is a mess right now
    11:40 Will the SEC and Big Ten split from the rest of college football?
    22:40 Will the Big Ten or the SEC be aggressive in the next wave of expansion?
    26:45 Would the SEC or Big Ten kick school's out?
    28:50 Will Notre Dame be forced to join either the Big Ten or SEC?
    30:40 Will we see more coaches leave programs NOT in the Big Ten & SEC for the NFL?
    33:35 Could this ultimately affect the 12-team CFP as far as automatic bids?
    36:20 Will ESPN and Fox ever come together in broadcast rights to help support each other?
    37:35 What will scheduling for the SEC and Big Ten look like with this new partnership?

    2023 was already the last normal year for college sports. take in college basketball and baseball, it won’t be the same. i’m not against paying players, it’s the fact that there’s 0 rules
    you wonder why Chip Kelly is leaving along with Boston College’s coach who already left. they know CFB is unstable, and if you’re at a program who doesn’t have the resources to compete to begin with, but now it’s become enhanced with the rules, there’s no point trying

      Problem is we have 131 FBS teams so you either have to limit it to just power 5 schools or youd have 30+ teams per conference, and there are WAY more teams east of Texas than there are west coast of texas teams. Like way way more. Other than that if you limit it to P5 only then you're completely eliminating half FBS schools.

      That's a great idea but how are you going to get the other 60 AD'S to agree with you. I love college football because of the rivalries and the history. I love hating other teams. IMO the NFL has to adopt an amateur league where college players don't feel like if they're not in the spotlight they'll never make it in the league. And there has to be some transfer portal and NIL rules

    Sooner, rather than later. Just can't keep going with all the chaos. But, there are some real issues with who gets in and who gets left out when the big move to a mini NFL happens. For example, got to include FSU, Miami, Clemson and some Big 12 schools IMO. along with some more ACC schools. But, do Vanderbilt and Rutgers and Northwestern get in? The sorting that has to happen will be both interesting and heartbreaking in some cases. I hate it because I'm a traditionalist and miss the idea of Washington State beating a USC for example.

    26:46 Northwestern and Vanderbilt are both AAU schools. Huge research NSF type grants and networking with regional schools for even more money and multi year stipends. They will not become flotsam and jetsam. Football is football but the universities are also into profit making outside of athletics.

    48 teams: 8 divisions of 6. You play 5 games in division each yr and rotate every 2 years what other of the 7 divisions u play (so home & home game rotation). Thats 11 games. You get 1 additional game to do whatever you want as "rivalry" or whatever but has to be one of the other 47 teams in the league. Then each team that wins their division is auto qualifier. And then theres 4 "wild card". The top 8 division winners, top 4 based off records get auto bye first rd. Theres ur 12 team playoff. Badaboom badabing!

    The Original "Alliance" of the B1G, ACC, and Pac12 only existed to vote as a block against ESPN continuing to monopolize the playoffs and that's why they voted against it. They wanted the newly created 12 Team Playoff to go to the open market, so all the major TV networks could bid on the games, which would drive it's value through the roof. Therefore the "Alliance" wasn't necessarily against a 12 Team Playoff expansion. They were voting against ESPN's control over it. All that nonsense about Alliance schools playing against each other was just a ridiculous cover because they were too scared to openly challenge the power of ESPN and it's corrupt Playoff Committee. Nothing was stopping them from scheduling non-con games against each other and they didn't need some Alliance to do it. They were scared of getting scrooged like what eventually happened to FSU.

    This is not the golden age of college football coming. The golden age of college football is over. Money has once again corrupted amateur sports and has taken over. No longer will sports teach teamwork, honor, loyalty and fortitude. The damage has already begun an is massive. One of the most storied conferences in college football, the Pacific Coast Conference will be gone next year and kids are quitting their teams and transferring when times are tough or there’s more money to be made. Many don’t realize what we’re losing and won’t until its gone. Sadly, that is the history of man. Greed wins, humanity loses.

    I see this alliance as a wise defensive move for the SEC. When the dust settled after the latest conference expansion, the SEC found itself as the only regional conference, spanning only two time zones. The SEC understands that the Big 10 is in a position where they may poach some SEC schools in the next wave of expansion. This alliance will discourage the five SEC that have the academic standards to be admitted into the Big Ten from leaving the SEC.

      scared? it’s called strategics. you don’t eat each other out of the playoffs and it was 2 teams at one point, now 4, and now 12. look at the OOC games too, you wanna kill other rivalries with the OOC games scheduled? it’s already been killed with conference realignment.
      also, you still wanna help lower division schools, FCS schools and G5 FBS schools, with NIL that’s already unbalanced and teams like UTSA will never get a winning roster.
      so it’ll stay with 8 teams

    • @tremoore61

      ​@joe_zeay people seem to have selective memory these days. Do you know when the Pac12 went to 9 games? Do you know what went along with that? Their TV deal. When did the Big12 go to 9 games? Which also happened to coincide with their TV deal. Even the B1G, the last conference to switch to 9 games. They all switched because that extra high profile game made them more money. So someone like you, who's hopefully ignorant of these facts (and not a hypocrite) demanding that they should switch without being compensated for it like everyone else has because you called them scared, is ridiculous. They voted it down for 2024 because ESPN wouldn't pay extra for a 9th game. Because their contract was negotiated before the TX & OU addition. They are calling ESPN's bluff and not switching to 9 until they get paid for it. Any reasonable person can understand that.
      But since you brought up being scared, I'll quote College Football Nerds... June 4, 2023
      "In the playoffs, 9-game conferences are 3-12 vs 8-game conferences. (1-12 since 2015).
      9-gamers have blown out 8-gamers twice
      8-gamers have blown out 9-gamers eight times
      If 8-game conferences work the system to unfairly get into the playoffs, the results would be opposite".
      If I haven't made my point yet, I'll go further.... Michigan is the ONLY National Champion with 9-game conference schedule. But they weren't the first... believe it or not the SEC was the first, with Alabama when they went undefeated during the covid year with the 10-game conference schedule. You seem to be regurgitating other peoples talking points without any knowledge on the subject yourself.
