Here is a very, very interesting alternative to Football conference realignment in the NCAA....and I imagine it could be applied to the other two majors sports as well, Basketball & Baseball....maybe Soccer(not sure how many programs have a bulging soccer program).

Now before you poo-poo on this idea, read it completely, because it do explain how nothing would be set in stone, year to year, after year. Also, understand, the school chosen in the conferences or just for the 1st year.....they have to start somewhere.

Could something like this be viable? There would be a lot of travel expenses; but, would the increased revenue from huge matchups offset that? Wonder what % of the shared revenue break down from level to level? What exactly is the post season/bowls format? Could you support such an idea?

I don't see that one working since it eschews a lot of traditional rivalry games and the cost of travel would eat up a lot of the potential financial gains.

No Bama is a treat, but yeah. Cupcake isn't how I'd describe it.

SEC East.

We can argue over what a cupcake team is, but that’s a cupcake schedule.

We play 3 of the top 6 teams away from home. I’d say good try but it’s nowhere close

Washington a top 6 team? you're joking. Auburns schedule, with the exception of Bama... is about the same as UGA's.

dont you dare pretend UGA/AUB has a home field advantage... ever.

Each SEC game with both UGA/AUB schedules are equivalent... except you have bama.

Auburn has a tougher schedule... but its still "cupcake". I'd say good try, but you'd argue with a peanut and call it lazy.

Washington is #6 on the power football index and predicted to win the PAC 10.

The top 25 rankings aren’t out yet so I can’t find that many articles but here’s a good example of how obvious this is to see:

you know damn well washington isnt going to be a top 6 team lol.

Accept it... I do...Both Auburn and UGA have weak schedules. You've got Bama... you give me Florida for Washington...we're even. I already said Auburns schedule is harder... but still.. Cupcake, as you say.

Did you even click those links? I’m not going to pretend Auburn’s schedule is the absolute most difficult by any stretch but calling it a cupcake schedule is just hilarious.

It's also hilarious to call UGA's a cupcake schedule when your own team has a hardly better one.

I say... again... since reading is hard for you... Bama makes your schedule significantly better. Take them away... You're right at UGA schedule levels.

yes i said hardly better and significantly better.. cause its Bama and it's one game that really changes everything. If UGA had Bama on the schedule... how different would it be?

At this point I don't even know what you're trying to say.

"Georiga has a weak schedule."

"No we don't!"

"Yeah you do."

"Well so does Auburn!"

"No we don't."

"Well you would if you took away Bama!"

Okay well take away Auburn and UGA doesn’t have a top 25 team on their schedule, save for maybe LSU, whom we also play.

Damn I'm excited for the Fall. Comin for ya Reeky-poo

This one is for Kelly, who I see sometimes on other forums here on SHH. She has told me about her love for the Tennessee Volunteers and was a fan of Peyton Manning, who was a superstar QB there. Well, to Kelly, it's my sad duty to say that WBIR-TV in Knoxville reports, the man who called Vols football and basketball on the radio, John Ward, has passed on at age 88.

He was known for telling listeners, "It's football time in Tennessee!" And when a Vol scored a touchdown he would "Give Him 6."

Quote:
"It is with a heavy heart that we announce a great voice has gone silent. Mr. John Ward, legendary advertising executive, and one of the most beloved broadcasters and ambassadors for the University of Tennessee, passed away this evening in Knoxville," a statement from the Vol Network said.

Quote:
His final days behind the microphone came as the Vols captured the 1998 football national championship and the SEC Eastern Division basketball title.
