Excellent article!

Great perspective. I agree with most of your points, but I don't think the Texas Tech v-ball team will need to fly to Pullman all that often. In a 16 team conference, you've got enough teams in your division that you will only need one or two cross-divisional games every season. I wouldn't think Texas Tech's travel would be a whole lot worse if they are still playing Texas, A&M, OU, OSU, Arizona and Arizona State.


Austin ---

Thats a valid point. Of course, it leads to a question at the other end --- how much cohesion will there be from a conference in which an in-league rivalry is part of the regular season once every four years?

Granted, that happens in ACC football (i.e. Maryland playing Georgia Tech is 2006 and 2007 and not again until 2011 and 2012), but at least theres a home-and-home there.
