Oklahoma defeated Texas 39-27 to win the 2018-19 Big 12 Championship.The Sooners will get into the playoff if Georgia loses the SEC Championship to Alabama.If Alabama loses,Oklahoma should get in over them just because they are a power five conference champion.
I know this is just an easy fix,but please do this college football,I don’t want to see blow outs all day today (Saturday).
1.Scratch divisions or equal them out.For example the Big 10 East is so much better than the West and how much better the SEC West is so much better than the East.So here’s your example:(Whichever number they are is there rival)
2.As that as an example,even if you do even out the divisions,I think the top two teams from each conference (based off of conference record and then overall record) and send them to the conference champinship instead of having a great team from one division play another team from a weak division (ex. Ohio State,Northwestern;Clemson,Pitt)
So here’s how the conference championships would look like with this format
AAC:Temple vs. Central Florida
ACC:Syracuse vs. Clemson
Big 12:Texas vs. Oklahoma
Big 10:Michigan vs. Ohio State
Pac-12:Washington State vs. Washington State
SEC:Georgia vs. Alabama
Remember,these are my predictions
New Year’s Six
Rose Bowl:Washington (Pac-12 First Bid) vs. Ohio State (Big 10 First Bid)
Sugar Bowl:Texas (Big 12 First Bid) vs. Georgia (SEC First Bid)
Fiesta Bowl:Washington State (Pac-12 First Bid) vs. Michigan (Big 10 Second Bid)
Peach Bowl:UCF (American First Bid) vs. Florida (SEC Second Bid)
American-Memphis vs. UCF
With the loss of QB McKenzie Milton to injury,UCF may struggle early but I don’t see them having much trouble.Predicted score:UCF 31,Memphis 21
ACC-Pittsburgh vs. Clemson
Let’s face the reality.Clemson with their offensive weapons and talented defensive front,will dominate Pat Narduzzi and the Panthers.Predicted Score:Clemson 38,Pitt 17
Big 12-Oklahoma vs. Texas
Texas beat Oklahoma in the regular season,barely,and when Oklahoma can’t stop Texas’ offense and Kyler Murray and the Oklahoma’s offense try to make a comeback,the Texas defense will make a play,sealing the Big 12.Predicted Score:Texas 35,Oklahoma 24
Big 10-Northwestern vs. Ohio State
This game should be a shootout,and at the end Ohio State QB Dwayne Haskins will lead a game winning drive,making OSU’s playoff case even more interesting.Predicted Score:Ohio State 49,Northwestern 42
Pac-12-Washington vs. Utah
As Washington defeated the Pac-12’s last hope for the playoff,Washington State,they earned their spot in the Pac-12 championship versus Utah.With seniors Jake Browning and Myles Gaskin,I believe Washington will sneak away with a field goal win.Predicted Score:Washington 20,Utah 17
SEC-Georgia vs. Alabama
Georgia should be ‘Bama’s biggest test and they will be until Tua will score a few touchdowns in a row and the Tide will get a few stops,Alabama should get it done.Predicted Score:Alabama 49,Georgia 35
What if the Big 12 disbands?What conference would each school end up?
Baylor is in a small Texas market so they would have to tag along with the othr Texas schools to the Pac-12 super conference,the Pac-16.I don’t think they will do that so I think that the American conference will come calling.Conference Pick:American
Iowa State would fit well in the Big 10 with a good basketball program and a football program on the rise.The Iowa-Iowa State rivalry would be huge,annd within a few years they will have recruiting pipelines ranging from Nebraska east to the New York area.They could also go to the ACC or the American if Iowa doesn’t want them there.Conference Pick:Big 10
Like Iowa State,the Big 10 would want basketball-heavy Kansas.While their football program needs work (a lot of WORK!) Kansas would come into the Big 10 ready to dominate in basketball.Conference Pick:Big 10
I don’t really know which conference to put Kansas State in so I’m just going to tag them along with Kansas.Conference Pick:Big 10
When Texas wants to join the Pac-12 and the SEC comes calling… Conference Pick:SEC
The SEC may come calling if they join Oklahoma in a package deal which is probably want Oklahoma State wants.Conference Pick:SEC
TCU would love to join the SEC but I don’t think Texas A&M would want them in their conference.Joining the Pac-12 super conference would be the best bet for the Horned Frogs.Conference Pick:Pac-12
A sticking point for the crown jewel for the Big 12 is the Longhorn network.Between the Pac-12 and the SEC,the Pac-12 would want the Longhorn Network so…Conference Pick:Pac-12
Tagging along with Texas and TCU,Texas Tech would join the Pac-12 super conference.Conference Pick:Pac-12
The odd team out in the Big 12 would join the ACC with built in rivalries with Pittsburgh,Virginia Tech,Syracuse,and Boston College are all built in rivalries from the old Big East and as their academics improve they would be a perfect fit.Conference Pick:ACC
Take out any knowledge of rivlaries,traditions,and any other conference knowledge you have.Even if a school didn’t start playing football until a certain time,I’m just having fun with this so let it slide!
Oh,by the way FCS schools added are Montana,Eastern Washington,James Madison,Youngstown State,Northern Iowa,North Dakota State,Furman,Wofford,Illinois State,Idaho,Valpraiso,and Villanova.

#1 2019 high school basketball player James Wiseman has chosen to attend hometown Memphis over Kentucky,Vanderbilt,and Florida State.Wiseman will team up with his former AAU coach Penny Hardaway at Memphis.
Draymond Green and Kevin Durant had a few words for each other during the Warriors loss to the Clippers when Kevin Durant had a wide open shot to win the game and Draymond didn’t pass to him.
Could this end the Warrior’s dynasty?Will this scuffle end immediately or keep showing up the rest of the season?If the Warriors win another championship this year,I don’t know if this will hide the off court issues that some of these Golden State players are having.While I don’t think this will end the Warriors dynasty,it is not a sure thing that Kevin Durant will be back in Oakland next season.
