    The commish of the SEC absolutely tried to get talk of some form of playoff with the other leagues. No reason to dispute that. Are the other conferences "afraid" of playoff because of competition? Of course not. I think you might find any "fear" would be in sharing the pie or losing more of the pie, so to speak. The Midwest still has a huge amount of TV households and maybe they think they have to give that up. But of course, no one is afraid of playing other teams. Any talk of that is just "puffery" for fans.

    Honestly what has happened is the best thing for fans. If Bama beats LSU, then you have 3 teams that can come out there and have a beef about claiming a MNC. Hopefully that will make the outrage even higher. TV wants a playoff and fans want a playoff. I don't know if it is the school presidents that don't want it or the bowls that don't want it. I can't understand that. I mean will attendance be down for the Outback Bowl anymore than it is now? Will players miss any more class time than they are now with the big bowls being spread out more than a week now?

    I think we all want some kind of playoff, but instead spend time talking about how much one conference is better than another or how stupid a certain schools fans are, etc.

    So far from reading this forum I have found out that the conspuracy to defraud other conferences was orchestrated but the SEC and mainly UT, that the world is flat and that wrestling is real.
    Seriously just follow the money and you'll find out who pulls the strings.

    Why are UTjr fans so sensitive about their footed pajamas?

    We all saw it and God knows you bring it up every chance you get. Still doesn't prove it has to do with the other conferences being afraid, so stop saying it because it's a complete lie.

    Fact of the matter is these conferences are run by "old school" college football guys who are just happy with money and could care less about a real champion. That's pretty much the case. Conferences like the Big 10 and Pac 12 are more concerned with playing the Rose Bowl because of the tradition even though that game is typically the runner up game of the college football season. Look, I love the Rose Bowl and tradition and I've even been to it, but lets be honest, it's meaningless. But the conferences make money so they could care less.

    The only thing the other conferences commish and presidents are afraid of is losing money/TV's. That is all that matters with college football anymore.

    Clearly they are afraid. In the BCS era the SEC has won 8/14 BCS Championship games. The only loss the SEC will have will be against another SEC team.

    The other conferences know that if there was a playoff the last 14 years... it would be 14/14 National Champions from the SEC.

    Why would the Big10,Big12,Big East, or PAC want to automatically guarantee their teams will never be national champions again?

    The ACC is the only other conference with cajones!

    ^ I agree it sucks all the other conferences are a joke. I wish there was a legitimate challenge out there, but there's not. Maybe if all the other conferences combined.

    Alex, you didn't show up last night, I guess you are afraid of a BCS playoff system.
