Conference promotion vs. relegation

We often make guess about schools getting promoted to a better conference. The reverse- where a school makes a conference move down- is a reality. That said, involuntary demotions are damned rare, outside of Hattiesburg, MS I guess.

I wonder which P5 teams are closest to slipping down a notch. You've got to look at the Big XII and the bottom of the ACC pretty hard, I think.

Hard to say but it will all be triggered if/when the Big 12 implodes.  It would be nice to see some fairness but that ship sailed long ago.

I think you mean fairness in the sense of performance on the field of play being rewarded. I would settle for fairness with respect to number of people who actually give a shit. You may say we don't have any fans, but I promise we have many more fans than 85% of CUSA has right now.

I like the way basketball and baseball are done for the most part.  There is an actual playoff.  The only playoff in football is the one decided by sports writers...and most all of them suck huge dicks!

I liked the polls how they were done before about 1996. The media (many of them ex-players) and the coaches each elected a national champion. They weren't necessarily intended for the absolute best team, they were just two "national championship" awards, each of which recognized some special achievement at the I-A level.

The older approach is best exemplified by the BYU national championship. The newer approach is exemplified by Tulane going 12-0 and not even getting a first place vote.
