    @street0123 agree, but it's a big moneymaker, so I don't see it going away

    So the fact that the Big Ten plays nine conference games has been somewhat mitigated by its toothless title games.

    Toothless title game! You tell 'em, Mike! Be sure to mention this on Paul's show!🤣🤣🤣🤣

    I love the SEC championship game, and would hate to see it go away, but with all that's going on and with potentially more games being played, I can see it doing so.

    Whatever! Just win, Dawgs! Just win!

    GO DAWGS!

    the conference championship could be a rematch of a previously played game earlier in the season. The SEC could declare the best record the champion. But then there are ties and let us not forget all that $$$$$

    This and the update on Stetson...you're hitting it out of the park today, Mike!

    Great info MG, thanks for the good work!

    You want ESPN to pony up? Tell them the additional 8 SEC games will be televised by whoever buys their rights since they are outside the original ESPN/SEC contract. Watch how fast ESPN throws more money at the SEC.

    Now THAT is a great idea....could not agree more!!!

    If money talks, as so many have said.... then let it!

    Go Dawgs!

    Like Mike said, it's too big of a money maker. If ESPN somehow figures up a way to fork out a large amount of cash to each SEC school annually, besides the SEC network, enough to forgo the championship game, then maybe. Yeah only 2 play in it, but it also helps the collective of schools. ESPN would have to add that to their already deep hole they're in with trying to force the SEC to 9 conference games.

    I’m not worried one iota about access to the playoffs with eight games. But as a fan, I want rivalry games and I want the home schedule to be great every year. We can “laugh” at other leagues all we want, but there’s not much better than seeing marquee games at home.

    Yeah, easy decision to just stand pat and let the money come in to cover the contractual buyouts or, let just let the schedule free itself up after the non-conference contracted games are played or are mostly played. And in the meantime, while the people who get paid to share their take and get clicks, shoot their opinions off... JUST KEEP WINNING IN THEIR FACES BABY!
