I also agree. I don't see the appeal for a school that normally goes 10-2 and goes to a major bowl every year now having to fight to go 6-6 in a mega conference. Yes they'll still would be "better" than an AAC team that goes 9-3, but guys want to win games. And of course, if there was just one mega conference of all the elite programs, and they only played each other, SOMEONE would only be able to win like 1-2 games in any given year, even if they'd actually be one of the top 25 programs in the country. Boy would THAT suck.Totally agree with this. Another factor is that the fans of these "big time" programs enjoy watching their teams blow out the Vanderbilts of the world every year. They'd rather go 10-1 with a bunch of games that are over before they start against Utah State, Lousiana-Monroe and Austin Peay (to pick three games from Alabama's schedule this fall) than have 11 actually competitive games that could result in a 5-6 season every now and then. The coaches and athletic directors probably love it even more.
