  • Surprised we haven't seen any discussion about USC and UCLA joining the Big Ten! Wild stuff.

      I think it's a joke. Conferences should be regional, right? I was okay with Nebraska, then they let in PSU. Then Rutgers and Maryland. Yuck.

      So now it's going to be a conference stretching from southern California to Washington DC.

        PSU joined in 1990, but while I generally agree this seemed be a situation where USC was unhappy and going to leave (and brought along UCLA) and they gave the B1G the first call. I think Kevin Warren would've been amiss if he'd said anything but yes.

        • All these changes make me wonder if Conference Games actually will matter .... no way you can play everyone in the conference.

          Maybe the Big Ten will be a 18-21 team conference with three 6-7 team divisions (East, Central, West)

          someone is getting rich, someone is getting left out, and someone will leave the conference, everything else is unknown to me.

          • College football starts this weekend but Bama doesn't play until the 3rd.

            As luck would have it, I'm heading to Hawaii for Labor Day and will get to watch the game at 1:30 instead of 7:30pm!!

                • Well the Super Conference conversation is always a wild ride. Why don’t we just get to the end result of 2 or 4 conferences and let the smaller schools play for their own title. I thank the good LORD for quality high school football in Louisiana and don’t pay a lot of attention to college/semi pro ball. How much longer before they are paying High Schoolers NIL money?

                      • First, the AP poll doesn't matter at all right now. There is plenty of football to be played before the first CFP rankings come out and I am looking forward to watching it.

                        However, I am curious if it is ever happened in history of the AP for the winner of a top 5 match to drop a rank with a double digit win to a team that stayed inside the top 10 after the loss.

                        They lost this spot to the winner of a team with a top 15 match-up. However, the loser of that game is no longer ranked (by the same voters) so one would think that should be considered an unranked win especially since week 1 ratings are mostly speculative.

                        Granted Notre Dame would have dropped more if the margin had been larger (which I what I think most people were expecting). I didn't watch much of the Georgia - Oregon game, but the way the voting played out made me think that Oregon looked really really bad and Georgia looked really really good. This situation has to occur for Oregon to completely drop out of the rankings and Georgia to gain a spot.

                        I do know that my bucks offense didn't look their typical gun slinging form, but I was glad to see us win on the run game when we needed it (which is why we lost to TTUN) and the defense looks improved. I also know that the star receiver (even heisman talk) was knocked out of the game (which is probably a good reason for the poorer passing performance) and all other receivers basically had one game of experience.

                        I honestly find it funny, because if I just posted these facts without naming teams as a hypothetical situation; wouldn't it seem a bit odd?

                          Good question. You should probably call into the Paul Finbaum show or post it over on his twitter feed. /s

                            How about Michigan going up from 8 to 4 for beating unranked Colorado State?

                                Big10 doesnt want the competition, FIFO state would be displaced as the favorite child and stop getting special favors if UCLA was embarrassing them.
