The Great Conference War Begins

The N.C.A.A as we know it is about to change.  A revolution is brewing, War is afoot between the conference. The new movement began with the Big Ten talk of expansion a few months ago, but the effects will be felt across the U.S.A. soon.  The first shots in the 2010 Great Conference War have already been fired in the Midwest.  As I type, Athletics Directors and Conference Commissioners are discussing the course to follow in this rapid unravelling of the status quo.   When the dust settles, in the next couple of days, weeks or months, the N.C.A.A will have probably undergone a complete overhaul.  This is a historical time for the N.C.A.A and American sports.  No one knows at this point in time how it will all play out, but it is likely that the N.C.A.A will never be the same.

The Big Ten has been mulling over expansion for quite some time now.  The immense success of the SEC, both financially and on the field, that came along with expansion to 12 teams in 1991,  has placed it in a league of its own in College Football. Of the 12 teams that have won the National Title since the league expanded, 4 were from the SEC (which could move up to 5 if Auburn is awarded the 2004 crown in light of the N.C.A.A sanctions to U.S.C over the Reggie Bush fiasco).  The dominance has been more pronounced of late with the SEC claiming the last 4 National Titles.  The other conferences have been playing catch up ever since.  The Big 12 quickly followed suit by coming into being in 1994 (a merger of the Big 8 and the Texas schools) and they have also enjoyed some success since.  Certainly one of the biggest factors in this success is the Conference Championship Game of these conferences, which not only brings in lucrative TV deals and exposure, but also often acts as a play in to the National Championship Game.  The ACC was the last conference to follow suit a few years ago when it raided the Big East and added Miami, V.Tech, and Boston College.   A Conference Championship can only be played if a conference has 12 teams in it, as per N.C.A.A rules.  This has left the Pac-10 and Big Ten on the outside looking in.   The Big Ten (which actually has 11 teams) is only 1 shy of being able to get that lucrative Championship Game and they have been looking to expand for some time.

Notre Dame has been called to be the 12th member many times.  The Fighting Irish however have continuously scoffed at any talk of losing their independent status.   As a result other candidates have emerged.  This include, Syracuse, Pitt, Rutgers, Missouri, and others.  Earlier this week, it came to light that Nebraska will probably bolt from the Big 12 and join the Big Ten.  This possibility is being discussed in Lincoln today and an announcement could come as soon as tonight.  Colorado then struck preemptively and accepted a Pac-10 invitation on Thursday.  The Big 12 has been shaken at its core.  If Nebraska jumps ship to the Big Ten a series of  events can follow.

Why stop at 12 teams?  Many outlets are reporting that the Pac 10 and Big Ten have some serious imperialist ambitions.  Some are hinting that both the Pac 10 and Big Ten will enlist more schools to form two 16 team mega conferences.  By bolting from the Big 12, Nebraska will in all likelihood set off the complete destruction of the conference.  Texas has warned that if Nebraska goes, it will follow, either to the Big Ten or the Pac-10.  Some have said that the Pac-10 is poised to add all of the Texas schools and Oklahoma/Oklahoma St and thus have all the competitive schools West of the Mississippi river.  Kansas City TV claims that Texas and Texas A&M are still interested in the Big Ten, but without Texas Tech or Baylor, and that Oklahoma is the fold with the SEC.   Other reports are stating that the SEC, who cannot afford to let the Big Ten and Pac-10 swallow up the nation without making a move,  has already invited Virginia Tech and Texas A&M.  

It is madness all around and no one knows for sure how it will end.  The only thing that is sure is that the Great Conference War of 2010 is underway.  The Big 12 will in all likelihood be destroyed and annexed by the Big Ten and Pac-10, and possible the SEC.  It remains to be seen what the SEC reaction will be.  The mere existence of the ACC is in jeopardy as well.  Clemson, FSU, Miami, Georgia Tech, Virginia Tech, UNC have all been rumoured as candidates for the SEC.  At this point in time nothing is confirmed, except Colorado to the Pac 10, but nothing has been denied either and many outlets have openly propagated the upcoming revolution in college athletics.

Therefore it appears likely that a 4 or 5 Mega Conference N.C.A.A. will come into being.  This could mean 1 mega conference in the North (a juiced up Big Ten), 1 in the West (a super Pac 10), 1 in the South (an expanded SEC), and one in the East made up of the remnants of the ACC and Big East after the SEC and Big Ten have done their pillaging.  Another potential 5th mega conference could emerged out of the ashes of the Big 12 and the Mountain West Conference joining forces. 

What does this mean to the fans? That is open for debate and remains to be seen.  Some will like it because it seems to set the stage for the much awaited deathof the BCS and birth of a playoff system (with 4 or 5 Mega Conferences it is easy to set up an 8 team playoff of the winners of each conference and a few at large bids).  Also there is the potential for many extra attractive regular season games and Conference Championship Games.  Others, like CBS’ Gary Danielson are hoping this change is not a detriment to the established traditions and rivalries that make College Football what it is.  That is the greatest threat in all this expansion talk and hopefully whoever is in charge of making these decisions is fully aware of the potential consequences.

The next shots in this war could come shortly, but no one knows from who.  A full onslaught by the Pac 10 and/or Big Ten is feared by many.  The Big 12 schools are making war preparations to defend their conference if need be.  The SEC awaits the initial thrust to make its counter attack.   Universities across the U.S. are making calculations and aligning themselves for what is to come.  The media and fans are buzzing with anticipation.

We are entering the calm before the storm.  Let’s all hold our collective breath and hope they don’t ruin the greatest sport league in North America.

    Now according to ESPN.com Boise St will be leaving the WAC to join the MWC.

      BSU had too, now they get stiff competition with TCU, Utah and BYU instead of the WAC.

    Nebraska to Big Ten seems like a done deal now. Should be announced soon. Texas now becomes the next domino. They might be able to salvage the Big 12 by staying put, they could then add TCU to replace NEb…Texas regents will apparently hold a meeting next week to decide. Could be Pac 10, could be SEC, Big Ten does not appear to be a posibility anymore. The fate of the NCAA appears to lie in Texas now…let’s wait and see what they do.

      With CU gone, I really think 4 of the major Big 12 schools bolt too. Still could see A&M and Missouri getting into the SEC mix. I wonder if either would jump to the ACC. Clemson and GT would be good SEC fits. Schools like Baylor, KU and KSU could be left out in the cold.

      I wonder what happens to the Big East. Some could bolt to the ACC. Going to be interesting.

      Great read Seb on the SEC. We are going to ramp up CFB hard this summer.

        Clemson and gtech would seem like logical teams to join the SEC. both would provide in state rivals to current teams, however I hear that both are rather unlikely because they do not “expand the footprint” into new markets, especially TV markets. Texas is highly coveted for this reason, but they might settle for A&M…Expanding into big TV markets will in all likelhood be the #1 factor, for this reason I look at a texas school, oklahoma, maybe kansas, louisville, Vtech or a NC school as the most likely candidate.

        As for the ACC and big East, they could be raided and might have to join with whatever they have left after the dust settles, will in all likelihood make a mega basketball conference….we seem to forget that other sports are played even though its really all about football.

        Mountain West will get more Big 12 schools it looks like, making it a formidable conference as well. BSU made the right move…

    Thanks for the reply. Looks like A&M is the choice but they would rather have Texas and OU.

    KU and Mizzou to the MWC possibley. What happens to KSU then. Man what a mess!!

      There are wild rumour circulating that the PAC-10 and Big-10 are in cahoots, along with Texas as a Jr Partner, to isolate the SEC in the upcoming realignment of the conferences. Texas A&M would be scrapping their ploy by accepting SEC invitation this week. I hope it gets done. Pressure is on by Texas and the PAC 10 for A&M to follow their lead.

      Ive also heard that the Super Pac 10 would petition the BCS for 2 automatic bids and NOT even play a conference championship game!?!??!! the arrogance of some !!

    turns out it was only a minor skirmish not a war after all. i’d guess with some from ESPN that the Pac 10 might try to land Utah to make 12 and be able to hold a conference championship game.

    but also heard on mike & mike this morning the NCAA might allow the Big 12 now with only 10 teams to still hold one. if so I’d bed other conferences with under the currently required 12 to hold one will fight to have one as well.

    it appears as though “peace” was secured at the 11th hour by the actions of the Big 12, for now at least. Utah to the Pac 10 seems likely also. I’ll do a follow up piece when the dust settles…This could reemerge in teh coming years though.
