where will the line be drawn? What's the difference between 300 million and 350 million
for an individual, nothing. for a corporation, a lot. If you don't grow, you become stagnant. The SEC is where it is today, because of the extra revenue it has been bring in the last 20 years. There were people like you who said the same when Arky and USCe were added. If you stand pat, the other big conferences would grow and eventually over take you.
I don't want to end up where we have 20,000 empty seats at the SEC football championship because Missouri and NC State happen to both make it one year
Neither would happen. Mizzo did make a Big12 title game, I'm pretty sure it was sold out.
I, for one, would rather go after a team like Oklahoma. Who will be in elite bowls every year and their fan base will raise conference revenue in itself
first of all, outside of the BCS Bowls or what ever they will call them after 2014, the rest are contracted. Iff OU is in one, someone else won't be. If OU was in the SEC and good enough, they would just cancel out someone else's slot in a BCS bowl. I know the 2 team limit will be gone, but the SEC will have no problem filling 2 or more spots as is. Ok is not as big as NC or Va, so we are better off with NC St and VT if it goes to 16. We do not need to add ever elite FB program, we already have more than everyone else.
