    You have to have someone to play 8-9 times a year. This isn't the NFL where everybody plays everybody. USC is gonna want to play UCLA and Bama's gonna want to play Auburn and Ohio State is gonna want to play Michigan and so on and so on.

    I understand that but why a megaconference? My guess is they wouldn't be flirting with megaconferences if conference affiliation had nothing to do with picking teams for a playoff

    Same reasons they have conferences now, I suppose.

    But we don't have four megaconferences now. Do you see a need for a shift to megaconferences from what we have now if it'll have no impact on the BCS? We're already seeing some of these effects. Boise St originally agreed to join the Big East, most likely because of its BCS tie in. Now they're hearing that the Big East won't be a part of this new playoff system so they may pull out of their agreed upon deal to join the Big East

    If you mean 16 teams when you say megaconference, no, I don't think that's where all four leagues are going, at least in the short run. The four top leagues having 12+ teams including pretty much everyone who fancies themselves a football power, yes.

    I dont know if he explained it was a personal opinion. But it will not happen over night due to a lot reasons that he didnt touch on. But one that I think he was dead on about was that these conferences are looking for tv markets rather than tradition. It was the reason the B1G was looking at Rutgers, they were interested in that NYC metro tv market.
    ...and this one belongs to the Reds.
