It almost looks NFL like, with NFC and AFC. I guess they'll all be separated in multiple divisions, having div winners and a few wild card teams make the playoffs in each conf and the winners play for the National Title. It appears that's the route they're going to me anyway. At least that might take all the "Conf this and Conf that" out of the equation now and just play football.
The opposable thumb seems to get all of the press and glory, but it is as valueless without the other 4 fingers as they are without it. Not sure either side can succeed without some collaboration. "Us" vs "Them" will ultimately destroy both.
I can see us ending up with Alliance champ vs SEC champ each year for the natty. Alliance and SEC each have a 4 team playoff to determine their participant, then the winners play off. Know what this is? An 8 team playoff with FOUR SEC teams, and a guaranteed spot in the national championship game. The SEC gets to keep all of the revenue from their conference tournament, and the Alliance gets to split theirs up.
That would be a huge loss for the Alliance and for college football in general.
