    I for one am not convinced they'll be top 10 at the end of the year.
    To avoid criticism say nothing, do nothing, be nothing.

    In all seriousness, this looks like a really exciting change. Maybe not for the people who like to go every year and watch the whole thing in 2 days, but I think for the "greater good" it's going to create a very exciting product.

    I really don't get why PSU wouldn't attend.

    So last year Brands doesn't go, over the season he builds up a young team and finishes better than almost anyone predicted. This year, he enters with Penn St. NOT attending. Genius. (Now if we can just get someone to beat Okie St. we'll be home free!)...

    Penn State didn't attend last year either.

    Yep, but no one seemed to care. The big noise was over Iowa sitting out. It turned out to be a pretty good strategy.

    So, if the midwest region is not in Iowa City it will be at Ames?

    Is there any method to how the teams are matched up cause it does not seem to be regional?
