If every year from past years is to be independent, then somehow all of this subjectiveness needs to be eliminated. I suggest that the money argument will become increasingly the biggest factor. In some ways, that may be more objective than past performance. Mr. Billybud's quote on tradition is so true, one I violate often when making my lame arguments. Humans have a tough time making anechoic decisions.
"No, no!" said the Queen. "Sentence first–verdict afterward."
"Stuff and nonsense!" said Alice "The idea of having the sentence first!"
"Hold your tongue!" said the Queen, turning purple.
"I won't!" said Alice.
"Off with her head!" the Queen shouted at the top of her voice."

The Big XII will remain a bush league conference until these antics stop. I believe Briles.

This is exactly right. We tend to believe too much of what we hear on TV and in public instead of putting facts together and forming an opinion that is ours. It is something we all do because it is easier to follow than to lead.
