Regular season structure: still up in the air.

The much analyzed meeting of SEC athletic directors came and went without any final decisions being made. That much was to be expected, as it's a long and arduous process to get 14 people with contrasting desires to all agree on something. However, we didn't get a single tidbit of information, which is disappointing. Can't you just throw one little leak our way, guys? They'll meet again in NOLA during the basketball tournament next week.

Post season structure: a big vote cast for eight teams.

The nation's sports fan-in-chief, President Obama, sat down for an interview with Bill Simmons. Yeah, I know. Anyway, he expanded on his sentiment from four years ago when candidate Obama called for a playoff to replace the BCS. He wants to see an eight-team bracket, though he'll take a four-team bracket as "a good place to start".

I think you can make a great case for eight being the right number if you comb through the BCS standings archives, but I'd rather see four because it'll be easier to fight bracket creep at four than at eight.

From the Asking-the-Right-Questions Dept.

FSU blog Tomahawk Nation took a look at the Football Outsiders F/+ rankings for conferences over the last five years, asking the question, "Who's Number Two?". You know, because the SEC being the best really goes without saying.

In fact, the SEC is first in everything looked at except the offense category, in which it's No. 2. The numbers back up what we've known all along.

Tune in, then don't touch that dial.
