The SEC has little to gain by expanding unless their trying to further the playoff idea. More traditional rivalries will be played less and less. A conference larger than 12 is unwieldy and eventually leads to distancing "emotionally" by the two divisions. I think it generally would lead not to a playoff, but to two conferences. History always repeats itself. Everyone knows this. And yes, I went to an SEC school and I am very in touch with the alumni base and the general feelings of things. We don't want any more teams. Alumni, my friends, wield the real power of a school, not it's officers. You've got nothing without alumni support.

Agreed. 12 is the number, and the SEC, ACC and Big 12 are already there. Only if Baylor or Vandy is booted will there be changes in those three.

The gaps are in the Big 10 (reserved for ND) and the Pac 10.
