Things go in cycles. The PAC and Big 12 have been jokes lately. So tcu and usc may get in this year. Clemson has been solid for what, a decade?The sad thing, it's not a conference full of footballin' large state schools with large enrollments and fanbases. 4 of the 14 schools are among the 6 smallest P5 schools, and not one I believe is in the top 20 enrollment wise.
So I don't know what will be the upside and College FB goes through more seismic changes.
But add to this, basketball has dropped precipitously, that is no better than 4th among P6 BB conferences. Maybe 5th.
