Tim Stephens has taken crazy to the next level. Texas Tech to the Pac-10? Please. Just stop with the crazy talk.

Tim Stephens apparently had feedback to the above posted article indicating that some thought his conference school selections "were suspect".Here is response article from Mr Stephens at the Orlando Sentinel continuing to push the Superconference idea but not his prior conference school selections.Link at http://blogs.orlandosentinel.com/sports_college/2008/06/superconference.html#more

This series of articles are very interesting and the fact they are being discussed in main stream media and not just web sites like this site, is eye opening.

freaked4collegefb, can you please send these articles to the 8 Big East school presidents who apparently believe super basketball leagues with minimum football membership will protect your future.

It is very interesting to see the references to power shifts taking place with commissioner changes in the Pac 10, Big East, and AD changes with Notre Dame.

The Big East has to decide if it wants to be a driver in future super conference alignments or become the provider if schools for other super conferences to grow.

I prefer to the driver and not the provider.

I still think that the proposal put together by Omni (on another board) is the BEST long term solution for the BE. Of course it will NOT happen because too many things have to come together for it to happen (a pie in the sky scenerio). That being said, I would be ok with a split, add Memphis and if they can get ND, Gtown and Nova on board that would be ok with me - but I'm probably in the minority.

Panther,thanks for the reply.Can you post more of the idea that you mentioned,or maybe Omnicarrier can?
Tim Stephens in his articles believes that the one of the biggest factors towards future conference consolidation is the economy and especially the cost of travel.

Thanks
Freaked
