The SEC's End Game

[1]

The ultimate goal of the SEC is to create two 10-team divisions that are treated as separate conferences instead of one conference.

Each 10-team division would have its own championship game and both winners would get an invitation to whatever playoff system exists. They would both be treated as a conference champion.

Depending on who is added after UT & OU, there might have to be some realignment based on geography and competitive balance. But that is a minor detail.

No B1G school would leave for the SEC. Their identities and the historical bonds between them are just too strong. Plus, the per school money gap won't be that huge.

Just my 2 cents.

If the goal is a 12 team playoff system is it going to matter if two separate but equal SEC schools get in or not.

Based on the proposed 12-team playoff format, the top 4 seeds are available only to conference champs. This way two SEC schools would be in the top 4 and get a bye in the 1st round.

Not sure but this also might make it easier for 6-7 SEC teams to make the playoff every year.

Do the math and you will see there will not be 6-7 SEC teams in a playoff because they would have too many losses.

If the playoff is 12 teams

and the SEC has two 10-team conferences, it would be very possible to have 6 teams. 3 from each.

Not every year, of course, or even most of the time.

I'm not a conspiracy theorist like some here but the blatant bias of pollsters towards the SEC is obvious. Makes me sick to my stomach.

That seems to be an SEC logical path, one that seems to be something they would jump to follow if they haven't already.
