Okay, so the SEC just crapped all over a bunch of basketball rivalries and toyed with doing the same thing on the football side. That doesn’t mean it’s a conference that doesn’t appreciate creating rich, deeply historic events that bond its collective fan bases. Why, look what it’s got in mind for its newest classic.
The Champions Bowl remains a somewhat confusing concept. In years that it doesn’t host a semifinal, the Big 12 and SEC want it to take place outside of the BCS so those two leagues can keep all the revenue. Also, the bowl doesn’t have a fixed site. It could wind up being hosted by the Sugar Bowl, the Cotton Bowl or some other entity.
They don’t even bother with the pretense of caring anymore. Except for what’s in your wallet, of course.

You have sold me, Senator. First thing to do is fire that carpetbagger Slive and replace him with someone from the SEC who actually cares about tradition over just plain $$$.
what’s in YOUR wallet? Mike Slive’s and Mike Adams’ hands.
So lemme get this straight. If the Sugar Bowl is not a playoff host site, then the Sugar Bowl WOULD BE the Champions Bowl? And if the Sugar is a playoff site, then the Cotton Bowl WOULD BE the Champions Bowl? And how many years will both the Big 12 and/or the SEC NOT have a their champion in the playoffs?
This is just getting shittier each passing day. Mike Slive could fuck up a crowbar.
“Plato in his arguments against democracy 2,400 years ago reasoned that democracies were doomed to failure because once the people learned they could vote themselves money, they would, spending themselves into ruinous debt and oblivion.”
GTP’s Senator reasons that CFB is doomed once conference commissioners realize they can vote themselves $$$, ignoring the fans and ruining the game in the name of “fairness”, “settling it on the field”, “for the good of the student-athlete”, etc.
