Big 12 Getting Crushed For Reportedly Considering Splitting Football Into 2 Divisions

Big 12.

The Big 12 dropped some interesting news Friday, announcing that starting in 2017, the league will bring back a conference championship game, despite the fact that it is staying at 10 schools. It was also announced by commissioner Bob Bowlsby that the league is considering moving to two five-team divisions and keeping its round robin scheduling. 

If you're thinking that doesn't make a ton of sense - you aren't alone. College football fans and analysts are mocking the league for what seems like a pointless exercise. Why have divisions if you already play every other team? Couldn't that potentially leave the league without its two best teams in the title game?

We'll see if the Big 12 changes its mind. This likely isn't the last we hear on this topic.
