As a graduate of North Texas, I'm not happy that such a powerhouse of the south (two bowl visits in 48 years) was left completely out of this plan. What kind of sports site would cheat college football fans out of a storied rivalry like UNT/New Mexico State?

At least Wisconsin stayed in the Big Ten :)

so nebraska has to contend with tennessee notre dame and colorado, oklahoma must face texas, texas a&m and kansas state. yet miami and florida state get a complete pass, with basically just the same ole crappy big east/acc schedule. no thanks.

All that stuff about "closest big market", and they dump Rutgers from the East? I guess the #1 market isn't THAT important. Sure Rutgers sucks, but still, if they're making that argument... And also, Wow! on some of those attendance numbers. 110,000 average attendance? Are they kidding?
