A year or so ago, the B1G and the Pac 12 agreed on a scheduling "alliance" that would have pitted their member schools against one another in all sports. Eventually, that deal fell through, and the B1G opted to add Rutgers and Maryland instead (I still haven't exactly figured out how that works out to the two options they had, but I digress).
In the last few days, information has leaked about the Big 12 entering similar discussions, first with the ACC and now with the SEC. Being that I currently reside in the Southeast, either of those options sounds good to me, though I'd prefer the SEC for travel and the ACC for competition. What does everyone else think? Which league would you like to see the Big 12 align with? Would you prefer it stay more independent and allow the schools to come up with schedules on their own? If the SEC is the choice, would you want a clause, as I do, limiting the matchups with mizery, particularly in basketball and football?
SEC spokesman confirms 'limited dialogue' on possible nonconference scheduling arrangement.
Honestly I think in basketball it does not matter. Still I would prefer they stop pussy footing around with it and just cut to the end game of all these alliances, bowl shuffling, conference re-alignment processes and be done. There is one logical endgame and that is the BCS schools having a football playoff for which they get all (or 95%) of the money and the BCS schools finding a way to get 90% plus of the NCAA tourney money or leaving the NCAA's to setup their own tourney and having all the money.
That is where this is going. Let us just get on with it.
