It's likely that the five power conferences get "autonomy" in tomorrow's vote, forever changing the landscape of college football. I hope and believe this will lead to improvements, but if the vote passes, as expected, the sport will never be the same. I apologize in advance for all the Pelini comments, but I think he's on target here:
"This gives you a lot better chance of getting things done," Nebraska coach Bo Pelini said. "[What we have now] would be like if Microsoft had to operate under the same restrictions as the mom-and-pop store down the street. It's ridiculous, and it doesn't work."
"You have all these committees made up of people with different agendas that meet like twice a year," Pelini said. "It was broken before it ever got started."
"It's tough for an organization as large as ours to keep up with everything," Iowa head coach Kirk Ferentz said. "My hopes are that maybe we can streamline some policies, re-evaulate some things and come up with a little more efficient way of operating."
