These are some highlites from an article that I wrote that was published in a local paper.
With the inevitable formation of Super-Conferences within the FBS, there will most likely be 4 super conference, with 16 teams in each conference.Within each super conference their will probably be 2 subdidisions, of 8 teams each. These subivision teams will play each other and may play teams from the other subdivision meaning 3 or 4 games. This would leave 1 or 2 games to play outside the super conference.
This being said, with the implementation of these super conferences, unless the NCAA adds a 13th game, this would probably eliminate games between FBS and FCS teams, thus eliminating the "big money" payout games FCS teams use to help pay the bills.
There will be other FBS schools that won't be within the super-conferences, but their ability to offer the big payout will be limited.
Im sorry, no flame, but why would super conferences eliminate fbs teams from playing fcs teams? If anything I think it would make it more prevelant. With fewer out of conference games, and a tougher conference schedule, less teams will play quality out of cOnference teams. Plus with a conference season starting earlier, more teams, especially the middle teir ones, might want to play an fcs school to get an extra scrimmage of sorts instead of playing a team that could potentially beat them. IMO
