Can you just imagine the BigXII with the addition of Ohio State, Nebraska, Iowa, xichigan, PSU and Wisconsin ??

The B1G would be done and the BigXII would become the Big Mid-Western Conference (A nod at returning to the original Western Conference name). I'm sure Ohio State would be able to negotiate a healthy television contract for many years to come. Don't forget, West Virginia is in the BigXII, so the footprint is already expanded to be sort-of close to these teams. If ND joined it would be massively successful!!

Just food for thought ...

     I don't understand why we think that Spring football is an option?  If we can't get control of the COVID outbreaks during the Summer. How can we do it during the Winter??    I've read the many comments here about the virus being a hoax and over blown and others saying no one is taking it serious enough. I've seen heated arguments and plenty of Downvotes on this subject. No matter which side you believe in. IF football is cancelled this Autumn because of the Virus. Do we really think things will improve during the Winter to convince those who cancelled it in the first place to actually agree to have a Spring Football season?? 

   I hope we have Football, But it's not my decision. At least we have the CBJ for a while longer!!!!

    I like the idea of getting 32 teams together (from across the country) to create a loose 2020 rogue alliance and placing them into Four(4) 8-Team divisions. You play all the teams in your assigned division plus 2-3 'cross-over' games. Then take each division Champion for the CFP. no committees, no debate. Just win division and go to CFP. CFP can either be with the current bowls or find a place to host a bubble for the 4 teams. If there are no fans in the stands, almost any stadium would work. 

   The big issue would be that if these Universities went to all this trouble to create this, only to have to close it all down in week 3 due to multiple teams have virus outbreaks. The liability of this situation occurring is a real reason it likely won't happen.

True, 10 am does sound better than 9 am. 

However, I did enjoy the 5p kick, because it was over by 9p and I could enjoy the rest of the night. We went to a Alumni Bar in downtown San Diego to watch the game (American Junkie if anyone is looking for a Buckeye Bar in San Diego). We then strolled through the Gas Lamp to enjoying the remainder of the night.

But YES, I would have been fine with a 6p kick, So I do agree with your plan. :-)

I hear what you're saying. But I'm in San Diego now, and I enjoy the all day college football starting at 9am. 

It's all day football. (9am game, Noon game, 3:30, and then a late west coast game). If I'm up early, I can watch one of the pre-game shows.

I just wish The Buckeyes didn't always seem to be at that 9am slot.

I think Cincinnati and other small schools are in a difficult boat in their ability to retain coaches. Not being in a Power 5 conference limits what these programs can do. It would take extreme circumstances for Cincy (or other Group of 5) to make the CFP.

I know some people might disagree with you john, But I absolutely agree that beating ttun is priority #1. Being 8-4 and beating ttun is much better than being 11-0 then losing to ttun to be 11-1. 

Here's to Day keeping the streak alive!!
