    Big 12 and SEC strike up postseason bowl agreement to combat the Rose Bowl

    http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/ncaaf-...180336090.html

    In official "take that Rose Bowl" fashion, the SEC and Big 12 announced Friday they are forming their own postseason bowl alliance following the 2014 season.

    The champions of the two conferences will play in the bowl game site and date undetermined unless they are among the four teams chosen for the potential playoff to determine the national champion.


    If the conference champions are not available, the next best teams would participate.



    This new bowl game is the equivalent to the Big Ten and Pac-12's Rose Bowl deal without the tradition. It also provides those two conferences an opportunity to send their champions to the Rose Bowl under the same provisions as this new bowl deal.
    On the flip side, this leaves the Big East and the ACC out in the cold. The Big Ten, Pac-12, Big 12 and SEC have asserted themselves as the major players in college football while the ACC and Big East are busy trying to work through their membership issues. If there were ever a time for certain ACC members to start entertaining overtures from any of these conferences, it would be now.


    As the wheels of realignment continue to churn, college football is quickly becoming a sport of four power leagues and everyone else.

    So the Big 12 is that itchy to get their head bashed in on a yearly basis huh?
    Insert pithy saying here.
