    Oklahoma is team to beat this season
    It's hard to argue with results. The Southeastern Conference has won five straight Bowl Championship Series titles and clearly is the most dominant conference in college football. So it would make perfect sense that my prediction for this year's BCS...
  • Which 2 teams will be in the BCS title game?

    Alabama vs. Oklahoma Teddy Greenstein Chicago Tribune We already know one of the teams that will get there. Sort of. For five straight years, the survivor of the SEC title game has played for — and won — all the marbles. Who will that be?...
  • If Texas A&M joins SEC, how will it do?

    Aggies on the rise Teddy Greenstein Chicago Tribune Great question. You wonder if Texas A&M's leadership has even gotten that far in weighing the pros and cons of deserting the Big 12. What's fueling this move is the Aggies' inferiority complex to...
  • Supermarket an open raid

    College football is a billion-dollar business … here are my two cents: Super conferences appear on the way, so let's get on with it. Rearrange the deck chairs, cut the checks, board up office windows, consolidate and reconfigure. "Things change,"...

  • They're more than OK

    Oklahoma State is the real deal. The Cowboys dismantled Arizona 37-14 on Thursday night, and with an offense that can score through the air and on the ground, they could be a national title contender. Georgia has the talent to be successful. Despite...
  • Should SEC expand? Whom should it add?

    Super conference coming Chris Dufresne Los Angeles Times Texas A&M is not going to the Southeastern Conference anytime soon, if you think soon is the next week. But it's likely to happen, the SEC's weekend decision not to invite A&M only a stall...
  • Longing for a rosy result

    Texas may or may not end up in the Pacific-12 Conference. Pac-12 Commissioner Larry Scott tried to lure the Longhorns last year before his dream for a 16-team super league was squashed — or maybe deferred. Texas once held a big stack of expansion...
  • What next for Big 12, Big East teams?

    Short-term solution Jeff Otterbein Hartford Courant So much is still in flux in the ever-changing world of conference realignment. The Big East has already lost two teams, Syracuse and Pitt, to the ACC. Certainly Connecticut and Rutgers from the Big...
  • Not so fast, Big 12 powers

    Don't mess with … Pullman? These are fascinating days for purveyors of dark comedy and comeuppance. Last year, Texas wrecked what was then the Pac-10 Conference's plan to expand to 16 teams when the Longhorns reneged in the 11th hour. Tuesday...
  • Volatile landscape not done shifting

    A college football fan recently rescued after two years on a deserted island — play along here — was asked to make this year's conference picks. He liked Nebraska in the Big 12, Boise State to win the Western Athletic and BYU and Utah to...
