Funny to think about all those old, rich, status quo, white dudes that pretended to believe a playoff would be bad for college football in order to protect their own self-interest. And ironically one of the biggest beneficiaries of the playoff was the leader of that opposition movement was none other than B1G Commissioner Jim Delaney. Hopefully an interviewer at some point in the near future will call him out on his B.S.
Can't wait to see how much coin MSU and OSU's games dump into the B1G coffers. Maybe Iowa can use their share to buy out Ferentz.
Only guy that had a chance of catching EZE on his long run was Jalin Marshall. #B1Gspeed
I wonder why there's never been an annual "Battle of Ohio" basketball tournament put together? How great would it be to have a tournament played in Ohio that consists of eight teams from the state. Maybe do it the last weekend of the preseason before everyone gets into conference play and college football is in the doldrums.
Every year you could have the three big boys (Ohio St, Cincy, Xavier) plus 5 other teams like Dayton, Ohio, etc. playing each other to be King of Ohio. Guarantee every team three games, so that even the losers on the first day get to play on the last day. Rotate the location of the tourney each year. I'm sure it will never happen because it always seems to boil down to Ohio St admins being too chicken-shit to actuallly schedule any serious in-state competition. But man, it would be great.
All these schools being thrown out there are a smokescreen. Jim Delaney gets what Jim Delaney wants. Jim Delaney wants Texas and Jim Delaney wants 16 teams. So Jim Delaney gets Texas and brings Oklahoma, Oklahoma St, and adds Kansas just to make an even 16. The Big16 then owns the Midwest from Canada to Mexico.
Did you hear that no one gives a shit about the football team this year!!
