Conference Realignment

Recommended Posts

It seems there should be thread to discuss conference realignment in college athletics.  While this can take place due to any sport, college football seems to be the primary focus in schools switching conferences.

Reports indicate that Texas and Oklahoma may try to join the SEC, with some type of announcement coming as early as tomorrow.

 

Ripple effects include talks of a merger of the Pac-12 and Big 12.  Does West Virginia join a conference with teams in California and Washington?

 

Does West Virginia go to the ACC?

 

Will we ever see a megaconference with 30 teams?

Texas and OK will join SEC in 2025. What's the repercussions?

This makes SEC theoretically tougher than the other conferences, with about half of the top-20 revenue teams in one conference. Let's say Georgia survives and wins SEC championship at 9-3 record. Clemson, Ohio State, USC are 12-0, and there's a slew of 11-1 teams. Is the playoff committee going to respect Georgia's tougher schedule and pick a 9-3 Bulldogs team over a bunch of 11-1 teams?

What if SEC decides they will play their own championship instead of bowl games? Why play a lesser team when the good ones are already in your own conference? Then you might have a de facto super conference playoff.

Playoff committee could also expand playoffs to include 12 teams, I know that is under discussion too.
