John McKay Conference

ESPN did something interesting, picking their choice of the country's top 40 college FB teams and breaking them into 4 conferences. They developed a playoff system, and a relegation process each year where the two worst teams in the conference are rotated out and the two best who weren't in are then rotated in. We are in the "John McKay Conference." What shocked me is it mentions that the Florida Gators - in the "Bear Bryant Conference" - have not played a nonconference game outside of the state of Florida in 18 years! In 1991 they traveled to Syracuse and lost, 38-21. That's it. No more since. Can you imagine how USC would be slammed by the media if we refused to leave California for a nonconference game? The Florida Gators get away with it for 18 years and counting and the media barely mentions it.

Here's the ESPN conference stuff: http://sports.espn.go.com/ncf/columns/story?columnist=schlabach_mark&id=4378659
