Default Neinas was ahead of his time; he wanted a playoff long ago...

I hope Bowlsby is ready to live up to Neinas' legacy.

Can't argue with this!

But, as a noted on another thread, many of the Land Thieves ("Sooners") who became our forefathers were Texas outlaws that couldn't make it in Tejas and had to get away from the law! (A point Mr. Brian Combs left out of his synopsis.)

I think it makes more sense for OK and OK state to be in the SEC now vs the SEC getting VT and anyone else. Especially if ND goes to the Big 12.

And I am with you on OK not being second fiddle in tradition. I was speaking about influence & power more than anything. The conference goes by what Texas wants unfortunately. Given Oklahoma's tradition in ALL sports they should have more influence to me. And the talk of ND going to the Big12 seems like it would only make their voice even smaller. it's unfortunate...

And yes you are exactly right in how OK keeps their revenue up by placing an importance on having good winning programs. It's the same point I made about the SEC.

I wanna see what the playoff does to realignment. I think it will slow it down tremendously. but I still expect the conferences to go to 16 eventually. It just may be a few years longer now.

And as much as I hate Oklahoma. I'm on the get Oklahoma in the SEC bandwagon. Whatever that takes...

I think you're right.

In spite of what the media and blogosphere has been purporting (for example, FSU/Clemson waiting for postseason system/playoff to shakeout), I'm guessing prospective teams will sit and wait for a bit under the new format.

I'm not so sure I believe this anymore... I still think the realignment will slow down, obviously. But it may slow down so much it stops.

I just don't see the benefit of going to 16 now that a playoff has happened. The next chess move is to get the playoff to 8. Whenever it goes to 8 will be when the music stops and the expansion will officially be dead!

Realignment is on life support right now...

Probably right.

The ACC football-centric teams such as FSU and Clemson will have to see if they can find a way to have a seat at the table.

Perhaps they'll evaluate the new playoff system for a few years and see how it affects their chances of getting into the top 4 teams from year-to-year. If the 4 team playoff overtly is oriented towards the Big 4 conferences (B1G/BigXII/PAC/SEC) then perhaps FSU/Clemson will grovel and try to gain entry into the BigXII....but right now it appears to be standing pat. You never know though. Could all change tomorrow.

Very true... Things could change tomorrow.

I would expect ND, VT, and Pitt to all possibly be aggressive in looking to move if the playoff favors the Big4.

My main hesitation is that the ACC has some up and coming powers who may be strong enough to keep the conference in as a player. If one of those teams wins a Natty early on... The ACC will be more solid.
