"Burnt orange makes me puke!" - Mother Teresa (unverified)
From Stewart Mandel, SI:
"On one side, we have the Big Ten, Pac-12, ACC and Big East, all of which have endorsed incorporating a conference-champion requirement for most or all of the four teams selected. On the other side, we have the SEC and Big 12, whose leaders made it clear this week they want the top four teams, period, whether those teams are chosen via a revised BCS formula or an NCAA tournament-style selection committee.
The sides are drawn, and it's starting to get ugly, with SEC commissioner Mike Slive criticizing other conferences for trying to "gerrymander" the playoff field and Alabama coach Nick Saban calling out "self-absorbed people who are worried about how it affects their circumstance or their league rather than what's best for college football." Saban, of course, was referring to Big Ten commissioner Jim Delany, who previously said, "I don't have a lot of regard for" a team that doesn't win its own division (cough, 2011 Alabama, cough).

Sorry Alan, but the "power of the SEC and B12" is an illusion. The other 4 conferences want their own chance at a NC and they have more votes. Will there be a compromise? Probably, but to say what SEC/B12 wants, it gets is overstating the facts.
Like the new format. Like the fact there isn't a lot of rehashed info. I appreciate it very much!!!
Great report. Keep it up OUI.
big 12 at 10.......how pathetic
I don't care for the conference staying at 10, I would take FSU in a hearbeat. The BIG10 played with 11 before they took Nebraska!
UT and OU don't want to split the money.
As always, a good read with my morning cup of coffee. Hope Alan from AZ is right about Bond. The film on this kid is sick.
