WSJ Bashes Superconferences

Wall Street Journal contributor Darren Everson decries the coming possibility of super-conferences and the demise of traditional match ups. A bit too much ostrich head-in-the-sand it seems to me and here is my response:

I find it a bit of the ironic that the WSJ was quick to recognize that we now exist in a global economy with all its ramifications and yet, in the person of D. Everson, chooses to remain parochial in its view of college sports. BCS (for lack of a more accurate designation) athletic competition has outgrown its geographic restrictions, and with the help of the recent media explosion — residing in Panama I was able to view practically all the meaningful FB games Thursday-Saturday — has now become a nationwide, nay, worldwide, attraction. Add to that the reality that college sports has become near totally focused on revenue and you have a future that renders traditional values (and the NCAA for that matter) irrelevant.

Perhaps you have thoughts.
