I figured I might as well post this here as well.
It is an often and well-known fact that the Pac-10 has disappointing bowl affiliations. Instead of wallowing in this fact, I tried to outsmart the people who organize college football for a living by conceiving a better idea over my lunch break. Sparked by the recent talk of realigning the Pac-10 bowl affiliations, I tried to envision a new bowl game between the match-up I most want to see, the Pac-10 and the SEC.
The recent high-profile SEC – Pac-10 OOC matchups has planted the seeds for a nice rivalry, and I believe the college football world would enjoy pitting the Pac-10 against the SEC. Being in Pac-10 country, I know we would welcome the challenge, and since I frequently wandering through the SEC’s chat rooms I am confident that the SEC would welcome this match-up as well (though I might be confusing the desire to play USC for the desire to play the Pac-10).
As my lunch break progressed I realized that there are many reasons a Pac-10 – SEC matchup does not exist. I eventually concluded my hope is impractical, simply and utterly unfeasible. I’ve stated the reasons at the bottom of this post. Nonetheless, I will continue and state the main idea and reasons that a Pac-10 – SEC Bowl might have worked.
