Anyone else fearing that college football is currently getting Bettman'ed? Hockey thought the way to grow was to expand into southern and western markets who don't care and can't sustain succesful franchises and in doing so bascially ruined all that made hockey unique and turned off many of the most loyal of fan bases.
I fear college football is headed in the same direction. The things that people love about college football: tradition, rivalries, conference affiliation, are all going to be sacraficed so Bettm...Delaney can show the owners...I mean college presidents that there is growth. Why not just do away with conferences all together and start calling things the NCAA-North, etc.
This is just so short-sighted and stupid and it looks way too much like what hockey did when they opted for the immediate cash grab that franchise fees brought in. Now they have their 3rd work stoppage in a decade because all those new owners could not compete with the traditional franchises.
