Because there are too many investors in other schools.

And all the nos here making their own league sounds kinda fun. More than just handing the SEC an easier plate after everyone destroyed college football because of Auburn getting the shaft in favor of Oklahoma for the BCS title, the year after the SEC team lucked out by not having to play USC.

I always think of San Francisco as being the epitome of college football.

We're going to end up with two conferences, one ESPN and one Fox.

Cal Berkeley once won 50 straight games.  It was the 1920s and all, but still.

Ah yes, the "win streak" where they failed to win the Rose Bowl. Against Washington & Jefferson.

I think it's more likely they'll make 4 16-team conferences, and the conference championship games will be the unofficial first round of what will be in effect an 8 team playoff.

The notion that these are amateur athletes playing a sport for the love of it while they study has become absurd.

i thought that was the conference bama played for.

Notre Dame, kinda: The worst. The most preening, s-theaded football school in America. So stupid they don't even know they're irrelevant when they have been for the entirety of this century. Horrible place. Dumpy people. I hate them. Ugh. YES.

You know, he's not wrong.

Arizona State: The University of Phoenix is a realer school than Arizona State. NO.

Ouch.

As the all time rushing leader for The University of Phoenix, I'm getting a kick...

That was fun!

Texas: And really, what college kid is gonna want to play in Texas if they can't knock a girl up there anymore? These are the unforeseen consequences that Greg Abbott doesn't want you to know about.
Also, it's hard to find and properly put on a condom when it's dark and the power is out.

Northwestern: Dips-t school. NO.
I don't know anything about their football program, but why is the academically strongest school in that conference the dipshiat school?

One big conference. Then we can align them into subconferences based on geography. And the top 4 of those subconferences could go onto play in a tournament to be the champion of the one big conference. Innovative.

They already have that. Its called ESPN

The school makes millions of dollars off them. The notion that a-holes demand they play just  "for the love of it" is absurd.

Because half of the ESPN punditocracy seems to be an alum, and the author is a refugee from Deadspin RIP

I'm still confused they thought Illinois was west anywhere.

Thanks, I wasn't aware of that.

I'm always surprised when I come across programs that had success in the recent past (as far as college football goes) but are generally considered an afterthought at the moment. It probably wasn't more than a decade ago that I learned Minnesota won the two main non-Cracker Jack national titles in 1960 and people could be forgiven for having no idea.

If you're in the dark, why do you care if the power is out?
