No Playoff = No Expansion


It's as simple as that. For the sake of time, let's just look at one scenario that "Mr. College Football" had posted on his site about what the SEC would look like if it took a few ACC teams in an expansion.

New East Division: Georgia, Georgia Tech, Florida, Florida State, Miami, South Carolina, Clemson, Tennessee.

New West Division: Alabama, Auburn, Arkansas, LSU, Ole Miss, Mississippi State, Kentucky, Vanderbilt.

Let's compare our current division schedule to our division schedule in the scenario above.

ACC Atlantic:                    SEC East:

Clemson                           Clemson

Boston College                Georgia Tech

NC State                            Tennessee

Wake Forest                     Georgia

Maryland                             South Carolina

                                             Miami

                                             Florida

(Now i know we currently play miami and florida every year anyways, but we don't have to compete with them for division record. In this new scenario, we would.)

 The two divisions above don't even compare in toughness. I don't care how much money we receive, there is no way any amount of money can make up for the much much more difficult division we coulld possibly be in if an expansion occured. I know this is one scenario of about a million when it comes to conference reallignment, however, no matter what, our route to a championship would become tougher due to an increase in teams. This is why i'm only in favor or expansion if a playoff is formed, giving us a resonable shot of winning a championship.

I want to ask everyone a serious question: what's more important? A) Added funding for the team or B) winning a championship  

Obviously we all want both, but I just don't see that happening too many times with the increase in conference difficulty.
