* Beginning next season LSU and Alabama will no longer be competing for the SEC west. Bama is moving to the east.
* Even if we lose to MSU next season, I fully expect to go otherwise undefeated, or only lose one other game, without TCU to badger us. Who would it be? If anybody I think either BYU or Air Force. BYU is good, and Air Force gave us a good challenge this year.
* If S. Miss beats Houston then wins their bowl game, then they should begin next season ranked in the AP top 25. Yay, for us. Too bad they laid that egg to UAB though.
* ASU is a Pac12 school. A middle of the road Pac12 school is better than most top non-AQs. A 6-6 Pac12 school is a way better opponent than any 6-6 non-AQs. ASU got those those losses in the Pac12. Most of the top schools have so many losses, not necessarily because they suck (some do), but because the Pac12 has three elite teams and a bunch of good teams. The elite schools survive because they are better, but the other teams are evenly matched and beat each other up. Let's take the WAC, on the other hand, gets many of their loses in the WAC. WAC teams beat each other because they all suck. I'll settle for ASu in Las Vegas, thank you very much.
* (There was another thought here related to the one above, but I forgot what it was. If I remember I'll edit it in.)
* The Big East wants Pitt, Syracuse, and WVU to stay through 2013 because they want their SOS for the AQ renewal. If the Big East wins its fight and those schools have stay, then they will still be there when the new teams officially join either next year or in 2013. For one year, at least, the Big East will be a sixteen team superconference.
* If the courts side with the Big East and forces WVU too stay in the Big East for two more years, per their contract, will the Big12 get tired of waiting, tell WVU never mind, and go looking elsewhere for their tenth school? (Louisville doesn't count because its in the Big East and would have to wait two years also.)
