LOTS o' talk about college football expansion across the network today. Here goes:
- Team Speed Kills says not to expect a knee-jerk, keep-up-with-the-Joneses reaction by the SEC to a Bigger Ten. Garnet and Black attack agrees that expansion on a smaller scale is more likely to happen.
- Mountain West Connection, noting that expansion appears to be jumping to warp speed, looks at potential divisions for an expanded Pac-12.
- Troy Nunes is an Absolute Magician opines that the Big East will not exist in any recognizable state by 2013.
- Corn Nation wonders if the Big 12 is about to be re-aligned out of existence.
- The Only Colors puts forth a couple of football and basketball division/scheduling scenarios for a 16-team Big Ten. Maize n Brew does the same.
- Black Heart Gold Pants says expansion is more about the ratings than enlarging the footprint.
- Testudo Times takes a look at the impact of expansion on the ACC.
- BC Interruption suggests that the Big Ten should just implement a hostile takeover of the entire Big East and expand to 20 teams.
- Gobbler Country may have the best idea of all, suggesting we all just "run around naked in a forest with J.J. Rousseau," get rid of all of the conferences, and let everyone schedule whoever they want. At the end of the season, "ESPN decides which two former SEC teams get to play for the national title."
