    Wishful thinking on the ACC's part.

    I do think the SEC should secede from the NCAA and take some other southern teams with them (UNC, Ga Tech, Miami, FSU, TA&M) and form their own inter collegiate athletic association, sign their own TV contracts, and have Pay for Play in the by laws. Make PFP above board and a hallmark of our league.

    Have our own playoffs and national championship. Then play the NCAA chumps, er champs in a collegiate super bowl.




    I know this is "out the box" thought, but if no one thought outside the box then there would have been no AFL and no Super Bowl !

    Why not do this ? Comfort zones are for the timid !!!

    First thought....NCAA would refuse to play the game against anyone who opposed their almighty kingdom.

    I'll wait until I hear something more significant than an "anonymous" source in a wikipedia article.

    Let me get this straight. You just happened to be browsing Wikipedia on the SEC and just happened to come across this?

    Exactly. I was looking up some information for a friend of mine (Texas A&M fan) and I noticed that at the bottom. I had to read it 5 times to ensure that I read it correctly... :lol:

    The NCAA would not allow any conference to have an 8 team playoff for their championship.

    That rumor is definitely bogus.
