I'm thinking that with the bowl record this year SEC is on the way to limiting themselves. Not only did they lose, they lost badly in some of the matchups. After Georgia and Bama teams get pretty mundane pretty fast.
Props to LSU for fielding a team and playing. A&M couldn't even be bothered with that.

I love the thought of this. I wonder about the revenue split, though. I doubt the NCAA would allow the home team to keep all the gate and concession revenue. They also like playing at mega stadiums - would they allow this knowing a place like BPS would be 60% of the tickets vs. Michigan or Jerry World?
NCAA isn't involved in any football championship details and receives no money from it

Sounds promising. Loosening ESPN's stranglehold on the sport would be beneficial and if not, exploit it for more financial gain through a competitive bidding process. It is a catch-22 though as long-term contracts build in downside protection.

Nice enough guy, but good lord Bill Hancock's transition from the BCS to CFP is amazing. Defended the BCS until the bitter end and everyone knew a playoff was coming. Literally says nothing is changing and nobody wants change, then change happens and he's still there. He did great things with March Madness, but his 'leadership' in football has been a complete joke.

Would love to watch the Bama/Georgia game tonight but won’t be able to tolerate all the SEC bs that will be coming out of the mouths of the announcers - may just turn the sound off. It’s really not a true NC game anyway, just the finals of the CFP Invitational Football Tournament!

There is a college football game tonight?

It’s not college football, it’s semi-pro
I agree. Given that it is sem-pro, this game is really the Tuscaloosa Tide vs. The Athens Bulldogs. To associated this game with anything remotely related to higher education is a joke.

Portals and NILs….it’s free agency. Whatever happened to the scholastic requirements for programs or they lost scholarships? I guess that doesn’t matter anymore…right?

GO CHIEFS!!!

For three straight years, the SEC foes have been the two most extravagant spenders in recruiting. The only other school to exceed even two-thirds of Georgia’s $9.04 million spent during that timespan is Alabama ($7.08 million), which in turn has spent a million more than Tennessee ($5.87 million), the next closest program. Georgia's budget was around $500,000 in 2013.

Last numbers I saw for OSU was circa 2018 and it was about $800,000.. and that was up from $200,000 4 years earlier.

What all goes into the recruiting budget? I honestly don’t know, is it just travel for coaches and prospects?
