The likelihood of the Big Ten expanding and creating a conference championship game is fine with me. But that doesn’t mean the rest of college football – least of all the SEC – must expand or perish.
Suppose the Big 10 and Pac-10 expand. Suppose the Big 12 must scramble to reassemble itself. The SEC will still flourish.
The league’s 15-year, multi-billion-dollar television contracts are proof of that. They haven’t even been in effect a full year.
