True dat . . . on the 12 conferences, but we all know in reality there are only 6 conferences that the NCAA voters take seriously, sorry Conference USA, sorry Mountain West!
Top 4 out of the current AQ Conferences . . . if they would truly get rid of the AQ I think it might help, but the big problem is people/fans are NOT going to want to see a 12-1 Miami (OH) team play a 10-2 Oklahoma Team for a chance to go to the NC Game! Only the fans of THOSE schools, and a few curious bystanders are going to care . . . everyone else will just assume OK will DESTROY Miami (OH) so why watch it?
Although I'm not a big fan of all the conference alignment, and creation of the "Super Conferences" it does eliminate people p!ssing and moaning about 12-0 TCU getting shut out of the National Championship picture while 2 SEC Schools, or 2 schools from ANY one conference playing each other for all the bragging rights.
It might also force some of these smaller, less noticed conference schools to schedule some of the big boys and see exactly where they line up (i.e. Boise State, Nevada, Appalachian State, and TCU). Does anyone seriously believe a 12-1 Richmond School, beating up their competition in the Colonial Athletic Conference would stand a chance against an Alabama Team that plays almost all the SEC Schools AND teams like Michigan and West Virginia in their non-conference games???
As stated . . . a Plus 1 system is NOT the total answer, but at least the Conference Commish's from the Big 10 and the PAC 12 finally decided to do SOMETHING!!!
