In the article he mentions the Super Conference Concept that the media was driving. I had not heard about this, what was the Super Conference Concept?

The Super Conference Concept was an idea thrown around in the past couple of years that the Power 5 would consolidate into 3-4 conferences with 18-24 members in each of them. It would involve the Pac 12 taking a chunk of the Big 12, the SEC taking a chunk of the ACC, and the Big Ten grabbing from both the Big 12 and ACC. I think the television folks liked the idea because it mean negotiating with fewer conferences for media deals. Personally I don't think its a terrible idea. Put all the culturally southern schools together, put all the Midwestern and Northeastern schools together, and spread the Pac 12 across the Rockies and into Texlahoma. Make the Playoff a between the 3 champions and a 4th "wildcard" team.
