It looks like someone from the Big 10 has actually grown some balls. Nope...Its not the sweater vest boy or the "I left my home town and screwed everyone over for more money" guy either...Its Barry Alvarez of Wisconsin.
"We're irrelevant for the last three weeks of the football season because we're not playing," Alvarez said Friday.
First off, I say good for him. Secondly, its about damn time. I know a lot of people are against a playoff but in reality, at some point, a playoff is coming. So this is just one more piece of the puzzle. But Alvarez lets be honest. Your conference hasn't been relevant in a long time....not since OSU upset Miami like 8 years ago. So yeah, the Big 10 needs this.
I remember a RBR tweet from last week asking the question, "What would you call the Big 10 (11) if they do go to 12 teams?" For obvious reasons the Big 12 is out. How about the "Bigger 12"? The "Huge 12"? My personal favorite is the "Elite 12". Only because it combines the 12 team aspect with the Northern elitist mentality....so its perfect and we can make fun of them for it...
Anyways, hopefully Alvarez can make this happen cause if this domino falls, it will likely bring the Pac-10 and a playoff with it....like it or not.
