Jay Richardson says the fans win with the recent college football expansion


CE: What are your overall thoughts on the expansion of the Big Ten coming next season?

JR: This Big10 and SEC expansion was inevitable based on the major television contracts in place for the future. College football seems to be consolidating into a few (or maybe even 2) major conferences. This is also in preparation for the eventual 12 team playoff. I believe the B10 will get 4-5 teams in, SEC will get 4-5 teams in and then there will be a few slots left over for teams outside those conferences. In the end, the fans win. More high profile match ups earlier in the season and every game will mean more.
