The problem I have is with any conference getting auto-bids. They should all be at-large. The so called "Big 6" conferences (really, its only 4 anyway) would all typically get at least one team in anyway,
I'll watch the occasional game on a Saturday afternoon if it's a couple of evenly matched teams, but I'm no big college football fan.
I'll take the Big East and ACC in hoops any day of the week, pigskin not so much. Hell, my alma mater is one of the plucky bracket buster mid-majors, yet haven't fielded a football team since before I was born.
