    I laughed at zero of these, and I'm wondering if the problem is me or all the people in the replies saying this is hilarious.

    As long as we play Wisconsin and Iowa every year (maybe Nebraska too), idgaf what the rest of the schedule is. Bring on random games like UCLA.

Michigan will be the pretend public ivy we beat up now instead of cal. Northwestern is the new Stanford so it works out.

    I can buy Oregon being Ohio State's favored addition because of their football success. TBD if TV execs and the rest of the conference share those sentiments. We did add Rutgers and Maryland, after all.

    I’m really dumb about a lot of things, especially this. Realistically is there any chance FSU does get to the SEC in your opinions? I’ve already dropped my care about college football immensely, if they don’t make it in I’ll be completely done done with it.

    We are skittish because our leadership has been absolutely dogshit for so long making bad decisions over and over. They can’t be trusted. New AD seems better, but this is his first big decision/crisis.

    That said, the leadership at FSU, Clemson, and Miami are all questionable for ever signed that moronic GOR until 2036, so who knows if any of them know what they are doing.

    Was there an issue where the state government said that UVA and VTech could not be separated now that they are in the same conference? It seems like UVA would be a better fit for the B1G and VTech a better fit for the SEC.
