If they change the rules and the format, it just solidifies my thought how they're basically catering to one or two programs in the B1G.  Isn't this one of the major reasons we left the Big 12? 

Completely agree and, ultimately, that's the biggest problem. Based on the data I pulled together above, the more recent elite B1G teams would've benefited directly (tOSU, MU, etc.) with an additional chance at a conference title.

 

It really boils down to excitement, revenue, and ratings. If the league felt good about the matchup last Saturday then we wouldn't be having this conversation. The problems: Nebraska isn't very good, Wisconsin isn't very sexy or nationally appealing even when they are good, and neither is Northwestern.

 

This also goes back to what I said above that the current division splits are, in my opinion, ludicrous. The east has three traditional powers in one division and only one in the west, and the one in the west hasn't had it's you-know-what together for 20 years.

The bottom line is what I've said from the beginning. Playoffs wouldn't make the system fair, just different. You can't fix sports to make it perfect. Too many variables changing constantly.

You said I forgot about this year. 

 

I did? I don't remember saying that.

Is it? I don't know or don't think so. The Big 12 had the same format we have now - geographical divisions with division winners in the conference championship. I thought we left the Big XII because we couldn't trust the stability of the conference with other schools flirting with greener pastures - not because the conference catered to specific schools. Sure the offices and championship game went down to Texas or whatever but that's....small potatoes imo? Most of the things we didn't like about the Big XII were things that we were very biased towards/against or things that we actually voted for, like unequal revenue sharing. We just didn't like it when those things bit us in the a$$.

Yup, this would be the answer to matching the 2 "best" teams in the CCG.

 

Nebraska, Iowa, Minny, and Wisky fit perfectly as each others 3 "rivals".  And it would actually fell like a conference, where you would get to every stadium once every 4 years (instead of Indiana finally getting to visit Lincoln in year 9).
