Pretty amazing how little attention this is getting...

Lucky for him he worked south of the Mason-Dixon

Cringeworthy.

Probably doesn’t even scratch the surface of the landscape down there.

Ah, a fucking review. “Let’s take a deep look at what we already knew but now we have to say this because everyone else knows”

It definitely doesn't considering that Ed Orgeron era ushered in the players sexually assaulting and physically abusing students era. I am still surprised that received hardly any media attention at all.

One self-imposed bowl ban for a "lack of institutional control". Give me a fucking break.

While their boosters were stealing money from a children's hospital to pay players.

Yeah. It's a fucking zoo down there.

This situation is a perfect representation that certain schools are held to wildly different standards and play by vastly different rules.

But you really need to make sure students don’t take and pay back thousand dollar loans and if they do they need two game suspensions

Going to be at least 3 SEC teams in it every year, if not 4.

I'm very interested in seeing how this affects OOC scheduling and SOS in general. The 4 team format has completely failed in valuing SOS. That really needs to be a critical aspect of the ranking process for this format to be successful. The seeding's are going to be incredibly important and SOS should make a huge difference. It will also help preserve the importance of the regular season; if SOS continues to be irrelevant, the regular season will be completely ruined in this format.

They probably won't, but the conference title games should be scrapped in this scenario. Too many games and the regular season will be devalued greatly.

Personally, I don't love a 12 team playoff because it means the culture of bowl games will get the final nail in the coffin and I hate bye weeks (why should the same teams that already operate at a major advantage get another one?). But I do like the idea of getting the top 6 conference champs in. We need to diversify the playoff field. The SEC will get the more teams but they are the strongest conference and it still opens the door for more B1G teams.

Notre Dame being ineligible for the bye makes it worth it, in my opinion.
