Think it would be a great way to settle it once and for all. Added exposure for both conferences,guaranteed tv for all games,and good for college football overall.
We were talking about this a bit on the premium board and would have either all 12 games over one weekend or split between two weekends. Picture the matchups.
Texas vs Florida Oklahoma vs Alabama Kansas vs Ol Miss Tech vs Georgia OSU vs LSU Nebraska vs South Carolina Colorado vs Tennessee misery vs Arkansas A&M vs Auburn Baylor vs Vanderbilt ksucks vs Kentucky iowa state vs miss state
The matchups are just off the top of my head.

They oughta edit that wiki post to say that he intentionally took part in a act that had another guy stick his butt on his face. Yes, this planned spectacle fooled no one (well most at least). There was nothing random about it but it did accomplish what it was intended to do-grab headlines and get people talking. I've seen better acting in the WWE...

BTW...I do like the idea of a big 12/SEC football challenge but it will never happen. Quality non conference opponents destroy NC aspirations before they can even get off the ground. There is a reason that MU recently suspended their series against Illinois, and isn't b/c they are trying to beef up there schedule...
Until the NCAA/BCS start using a system that takes into high consideration the level of your non-conference opponenets, teams have 0 incentive to schedule tough opponents.

Having a man's balls,ass and taint in yr face is an automatic L whether you agree to it or not.
I agree and disagree. I certainly don't think something like this would happen soon by any means but the Louisiana Lafyettes of the world are commanding much higher price tags than before,so those schools aren't cheap wins anymore. An event like the Big 12/SEC Challenge could be a windfall for all schools involved.

With only 11 games it is hard to add big time contenders to the schedule.
