Dancing the Conference Shuffle

Not surprisingly, I'm a Kentucky fan and thus am committed to the SEC. Of course, there is no talk of an SEC split. There is talk, however, of the SEC growing in number.

I'm generally opposed to this because 12 is a magic number. In the SEC, each team has five divisional opponents and three non-divisional opponents. This pits non-divisional teams against one another every other year with a home game against each non-divisional team once every four years. Ideal. Any more teams, and it could be years between non-divisional opponents.

So to answer your question, I'm opposed to the idea of a super-conference. The Big East is there (for now) and the Pac-10, er 16?, may be on its way - but I don't particularly care for it.
