Is Delaney out of his mind?

Suggests that maybe the big 10 just puts the "two best" teams in the title game. I know @Hville probably thinks this is a great idea. But who are these people Delaney is saying are talking more about this?

I’m not a fan of the idea either. Unbalanced schedules make this impossible and this season we would have just gotten OSU - Michigan again a week later. Lame.

OSU and Michigan have the only two votes to determine the two best teams. I can't imagine why that would present a problem. The other 12 teams in the B1G just serve at their pleasure.

If Texas gets in the B1G, they get a vote too.

Might be the only way the BIG can get a team in the playoffs. Two step process:

1) break up the Big 12 - take Texas and OU into the BIG
2) Eliminate divisions and eliminate round-robin schedules.

All driven by TV contracts...CFB will suck in 10 years.

This would be unbelievably stupid.

Yep.
Ohio State lost to Oklahoma last year and would have still made the playoffs if they hadn't gotten throttled by Iowa (the 3rd place team in the West).

All the conference has to do is have its champion not get smoked by a combined 60 points by mediocre teams from the other division the last two seasons.
All Delaney cares about is money. Rutgers and maryland were added for money alone...they bring absolutely NOTHING to the conference. The 9 game thing, while i don't ont mind it and I dont think it is a huge disadvantage, is all about TV.

NW winning the west has people from Delaney to @Hville wetting the bed.
