    This conference alignment shit is getting out of control. Looks like Georgia Tech may be going to the Big 10. The ACC is effectively the new Big East.

    I bet. Does it really last that long? What do people talk about for three months?

    I have to imagine it gets like this anywhere that has major/popular sports teams, but it has really reached a fever pitch this year. People were excited before last year's SECCG, but it wasn't like this, mostly because Georgia wasn't basically guaranteed at trip to the NCG if they won.


    This rumor has been flying around for a while, but nothing has come of it. Now there's a flurry of talk about it again. Tech, of course, is vehemently denying it. I'm curious to see what it would mean for the rest of the teams in the ACC.

    That would help get us on the road to 4 super-conferences needed to do a true playoff.

    Yes - the deby prep season starts in earnest in late Feb - people follow 2 year olds basically starting with the Breder's cup juvie, then the 3yo season beings with the following spring. I play a fantasy league to keep up so I know the horses ... it's not AS intense that early, but it's a constant buildup... plus Keenland is in season then.

    Lane is not impressed... is it just me or does he bear a pretty strong resemblance to Daniel Tosh??

    That was a hell of a game, one of the best I have seen this season.

    damn it I know... it was a great game, but the one interception and that busted drive at the end they just couldn't get it done. Cardinal defense held strong but Bruins just had to sustain the drive, milk the clock, TD, then Rose Bowl!! I was really looking forward to being at that game... ugh.

    but hey we beat USC so it's still a good year!

    True, but I still don't know where I fall on that idea. I still like to have at least some sense of regionalism in my college football. I think it's cool that there's a quantifiable difference in the way difference conferences play football.

    That's crazy. I don't know much about racing, so it's easy for me to forget that there's a whole lot more to it than just the races we see on TV. It is interesting to me how into it people in Kentucky get. I have a couple of friends, including my best friend, who moved to Lexington as adults, and it was like they were bestowed with an exhaustive knowledge of horse racing the moment they got a local address.


    Clemson and the basketball schools.

    Good point. They should really be doing something more constructive with their time. Maybe they could destroy a rival's cherished landmark. Or perhaps they could head to the local Krystal and teabag someone. Or, if they want to actually contribute to the team, they could award the Dawgs retroactive and/or non-consensus MNCs.

    Please don't do anything to harm yourself when Alabama wins the SEC championship this afternoon.

    FSU will not be in the ACC for long. I give it two years at most. They've never had a good relationship.

    adsmith4, this thread as well as the football threads before used to be refreshingly different from the usual college football forums - until you came along. Now, if your douchebag attitude persists and spreads we will having nothing but one of hundreds of typical football discussions that are populated by mouthbreathers who constantly degrade any sober discussion with you cockiness, homerism, and pot-shots at other teams.

    The same with Bloomington and Indianapolis this time of year, especially this year.

    Haven't heard this. This would not be good news for the Big 10.

    I think it's a matter of time before the original 10 schools start considering other conference options. It would be hard to leave BiG because of revenue sharing, the BiG tv network revenue, and the strong academic collaboration, but with the right price offered by another conference it's not inconceivable.

    SEC Championship Game is as good as advertised. I'm nervous and I don't even have a rooting interest.

    If nobody hears from me again, it's because I had a Dawg-related heart attack and died.
