according to a poster below, sec partners with b12 on bowl because Swofford bails on 'agreement' w/ sec to support top 4 in hopes of alluring nd? (side note, if true, i do question swofford's savvy there unless he know something about nd that is not otherwise known). b12 agrees to support top 4 and sec/b12 partner for a bowl which they can envision as eventually part of playoff format with rose bowl - (putting aside the logic contrary to their top 4 position- that scenario would by definition 4 conf champions). also believe that you can exclude major universities from certain states because more states would be represented by membership thereby eliminating poltical backlash? lol
an undercurrent here is positioning 4 to eventually break away from ncaa...of course all $$ driven with casualties.
starting to think acc, big10, p12 need to draw line in sand and say conf champ model...PERIOD. perhaps w/ caveat for minimum ranking. or else go to 8 team format.
of course, the powers outside sec could let them win....and schools from acc cut bait and run to other conferences.
