    SEC, Big 10 Get FOUR College Football Playoff Teams PER LEAGUE in New Idea | Expansion Big 12

    SEC, Big 10 Get FOUR College Football Playoff Teams PER LEAGUE in New Idea | Expansion Big 12

    According to Yahoo Sports, Washington State president Kirk Schulz has indicated that the Pac-12 did not intend to obstruct the latest College Football Playoff (CFP) format change for the 2024 and 2025 events. However, he voiced concern over potential alterations to the format starting in 2026, particularly proposals from the Big Ten and SEC aiming to secure multiple automatic qualifier spots for their leagues.

    Schulz, who serves on the CFP Board of Managers, comprised of university presidents from each FBS conference and Notre Dame, expressed apprehension about any conference receiving guaranteed automatic berths beyond their champion, a sentiment shared by others.

    In a virtual meeting, CFP presidents unanimously approved a transition from the 6+6 model to a 5+7 format for the 2024 and 2025 seasons, adding an at-large spot while reducing automatic qualifying spots to five due to Pac-12 realignment.

    Last month, Schulz postponed a vote to pitch a proposal for the Pac-12 to retain its revenue and voting rights privileges from 2026 onward, but the idea didn't garner much support among presidents.

    He anticipates the commissioners' meeting to generate pivotal ideas for the CFP's future and hopes these proposals will involve presidents early in the approval process.

    Regarding the Pac-12, despite having only two members moving forward, it retains positions on both CFP governance groups. Each Pac-12 team will continue to receive its standard Power Five revenue distribution over the next two years. Schulz aims for the Pac-12 to remain engaged amid ongoing discussions about the conference's future, including potential restructuring or merging with the Mountain West.

    “There’s a lot in flux right now,” Schulz remarked. “It’s really, can we stay in the conversation?”

    BYU, Baylor, Cincinnati Named WORST Expansion Big 12 Programs in Power Rankings... it's Delusional.

    BYU, Baylor, Cincinnati Named WORST Expansion Big 12 Programs in Power Rankings... it's Delusional.

    Big 12 football power rankings are a method of ranking the football teams within the Big 12 Conference based on their performance and overall strength during the season. These rankings provide fans, analysts, and teams with a snapshot of where each team stands relative to their conference opponents.
    The specifics of how Big 12 football power rankings work can vary depending on the organization or media outlet that creates them. However, they generally take into account several key factors:

    Win-Loss Record: A team's win-loss record is a fundamental aspect of power rankings. Teams with more wins and fewer losses are typically ranked higher than those with poorer records.

    Strength of Schedule: The difficulty of a team's schedule can significantly impact their power ranking. Teams that have played and won against strong opponents are often ranked higher than those with easier schedules or weaker opponents.

    Performance Metrics: Various statistical metrics, such as offensive and defensive statistics, scoring margins, yards gained or allowed, turnover differentials, and red zone efficiency, can be used to evaluate teams' performances and inform their rankings.

    Head-to-Head Results: The outcomes of head-to-head matchups between teams can also influence their rankings. A team that has defeated another team in a direct matchup may be ranked higher than that team, all other factors being equal.

    Recent Performance: Teams' recent performances, including their current winning streaks or losing streaks, can also impact their rankings. A team that has been playing well in recent games may receive a higher ranking than a team that has been struggling.

    Ultimately, Big 12 football power rankings are subjective assessments made by experts, analysts, or media outlets based on a combination of these factors. They serve as a tool for fans and teams to gauge the relative strength and performance of each team within the conference throughout the season.

    Expansion Big 12 Wins HUGE with Change in College Football Playoff Format Passed by Washington State

    Expansion Big 12 Wins HUGE with Change in College Football Playoff Format Passed by Washington State

    ESPN reported that the College Football Playoff board of managers has unanimously approved a new model for the expanded 12-team field this upcoming fall, ensuring inclusion for the five highest-ranked conference champions along with the next seven highest-ranked teams, as announced by the CFP on Tuesday.
    The decision, made during a virtual meeting of the 10 FBS presidents and chancellors and Notre Dame president Rev. John Jenkins, follows months of delay, largely due to considerations from the Pac-12 amidst conference realignment. The vote required unanimous approval for the 5+7 format, a condition that was met despite previous abstentions or requests for delay from the Pac-12.
    Washington State president Kirk Schulz, representing the Pac-12 on the board, affirmed readiness to vote following consultations with Oregon State president Jayathi Y. Murthy. Schulz emphasized the benefit of seven at-large bids over the original proposal of six conference champions and six at-large teams, particularly given the recent losses suffered by the Pac-12 to other conferences.
    The new format, which prioritizes the five highest-ranked conference champions, ensures opportunities for teams across various conferences, including the SEC, Big Ten, Big 12, ACC, and the highest-ranked Group of 5 champion. While the term "Group of 5" is not explicitly used in the format's description, it acknowledges the potential for champions from non-Power 4 conferences to secure playoff berths based on rankings.

    NEW: ACC Will Settle with Florida State On Exit, More Schools to Follow | The Expansion Big 12 Wins.

    NEW: ACC Will Settle with Florida State On Exit, More Schools to Follow | The Expansion Big 12 Wins.

    Recent legal maneuvers by the ACC, particularly amidst Florida State's lawsuit, hint at significant conference reconfiguration possibilities. The ACC's strategic signaling of potential negotiations with Florida State regarding departure terms signifies a pivotal juncture in conference dynamics.
    Legal filings referencing the Grant of Rights agreement, binding member schools' television rights until June 2036, reveal ambiguity open to negotiation. The ACC's acknowledgment of schools' potential to repurchase rights subtly invites discussions on exit fees and rights buyouts, setting the stage for crucial deliberations.
    Florida State's estimation of exit costs, ranging from $0 in a legal victory to $572 million, underscores negotiation stakes. A probable compromise between these extremes, possibly near $150 million, highlights the imminent negotiation's significance amidst looming trial outcomes.
    A potential exodus of desirable programs could spur further realignment interest from conferences like the Big Ten and SEC. Despite hefty exit fees, the allure of increased revenue and competitive opportunities in new conferences presents compelling incentives for departing schools.
    In this evolving landscape, schools like Florida State face a calculated risk, weighing long-term gains against immediate financial considerations. While negotiation uncertainties persist, the prospect of reshaped conference hierarchies and enhanced financial prospects drives the urgency for decisive action.

    REPORT: NC State, Virginia Tech Contact Big 12 Fearing ACC Death in Realignment, HUGE Expansion News

    REPORT: NC State, Virginia Tech Contact Big 12 Fearing ACC Death in Realignment, HUGE Expansion News

    Legal battles between Florida State and the ACC are unfolding in courts, with the Florida State University Board of Trustees suing the Atlantic Coast Conference, and vice versa. This serves as a central hub for the latest developments in FSU's case, filed in Leon County, and the ACC's case, filed in Mecklenburg County, N.C., as the Seminoles explore the possibility of leaving the conference, potentially sparking further conference realignment.
    As of February 16, 2024, the ACC has petitioned a Leon County judge to dismiss Florida State's lawsuit, arguing that Florida is not the appropriate jurisdiction for the dispute, favoring North Carolina, the ACC's home state.
    The ACC's filing contends, "Florida State alleges no facts in support of its bare-bones venue allegation."
    On February 9, 2024, the first formal court hearing was scheduled for March 22 in Mecklenburg County, North Carolina, focusing on the ACC's lawsuit. Judge Louis A. Bledsoe III ordered the hearing to address the ACC's motion to seal portions of the case concerning confidential details, such as ESPN contract information, along with FSU's motion to dismiss the case.
    On February 7, 2024, Florida State filed a motion in a North Carolina court to dismiss the ACC's complaint against them. FSU argued that the ACC filed its lawsuit preemptively, before any dispute arose, and without proper support from member schools. Additionally, FSU contended that the case should be heard in Leon County, rather than Charlotte.
    On January 30, 2024, FSU filed an amended complaint in Leon County, accusing the ACC of "self-dealing," particularly highlighting former ACC commissioner John Swofford's actions regarding TV deals involving Raycom Sports, where his son worked. The complaint also criticized the ACC's decision to accept SMU, Cal, and Stanford, citing lower TV viewership compared to FSU.
    On January 17, 2024, the ACC filed an updated 191-page complaint against FSU, prompting further analysis of the case.

I want to love this show.

But I don’t.
Big 12 content is spotty, heavily tilted toward West Texas schools, and rounded out by sports fantasy editorials as told by a 23 year old Baylor graduate.
This doesn’t stop me from listening, though. If you listen strictly for entertainment value, it’s not bad.
Especially for Baylor fans

404Macon ,

Wait yesterday you were????

Wait yesterday your claiming a “Big 12 playoff team in Texas” but today you claim a expansion 12 team win over the SEC. Have my cake and eat it to. (if OK is now in the SEC isn’t TX then to?).. Lets see, I think it should be “playoff bound Big 12 team and Big 12 team looses to Pac12.

Your Inferiority complex is showing

Draino54 ,

Great Insight

Nice show, good guests. Drake always has great insight and a diversity of opinion. Big 12 getting a winner with Arizona. Go Cats, Bear Down. Remember that, it will come up a lot in the coming years.
