Too many conference championships?
3 out of 6 is not too many.
One is too many.
Someone Actively Looking To Become The Only True Conference Nazi
A good topic to discuss and debate!
I have said I preferred 12 team conferences. That is not necessarily to imply that 12 teams is the perfect model, but it works well for the SEC in fb and bb and has been adapted by other conferences. The ACC went through a controversial expansion to the same.
Rather 8, 9, 10, 11, or 12, or even 14, whatever a conference prefers, there is inconsistency. The question may be not how many, exactly, but if inconsistency in numbers is preferable to an a system or arrangement of equal conference numbers across the board. In structures like the BCS, does conference inconsistency in size, with some having championship games, impact conference success? I think so, but to what level and outcomes, can be difficult to explain or prove.
