Looks like the 12 team playoff is going to happen. Personally, I'm not a fan at all; one of the great things about the college game is how much the regular season mattered.  It's also far worse for the players, especially guys who are leaving for the NFL.

Will these playoff games double as bowl games too?  After Christmas bowl season was great.  Now, these bowl games are not really so interesting.

That seems to be the main stumbling block that's being worked out, especially getting the Rose Bowl to play ball.

If it means more opportunities for 'Bama to lose, I'm all for it....

Also probably gifts them a spot thanks to the SEC bias.

As a fan of a team in the Big 12, it pains me to say it, but I think it's probably deserved.

 

Seems like every time you hear about a highly recruited high school player, he ends up in the SEC....kind of like MLB free agents and the Yankees / Dodgers....

You were saying...

Hopefully the SEC votes against it, although I doubt it.  The Big 12 likely doesn't survive without Oklahoma and Texas.

Yeah, they'd probably have to change the name to The Medium 10.....

And you'd be right to doubt it:

 

https://www.espn.com/college-football/story/_/id/31913980/sec-unanimously-votes-invite-texas-oklahoma-join-conference

 

The 14 SEC presidents and chancellors voted unanimously on Thursday to extend invitations to Big 12 co-founders Oklahoma and Texas to join the league, leaving one final formality before the deal is done: OU and Texas have to officially accept the offer, which could happen as soon as Friday.

Shocked A&M even agreed to it.  Lots of dominoes will fall as a result of this.

Lots of coach movement this year.  Really wish they'd wait until after bowl games, but it's not going to stop unfortunately.  Venables is a great hire for you guys, @RUPERTKBD

Thanks King,

 

I'm expecting at least one more mediocre year, (by Sooners' standards anyway) as their starting QB is a Freshman and according to reports, they lost several recruits after Riley jumped ship.

I suspect Venables may be able to change the recruits on the defensive side of the ball.  Clemson wouldn't even have been bowl eligible without him this season.  He'll be sorely missed, but it's a no-brainer to take that offer.  Just make sure you guys have an assistant capable of keeping him on the sideline.
