In the college football world, if your conference has less than 12 games you don’t get to host a conference championship games. That means schools in a bigger conference would play an extra game compared to other teams around the country, if they made it to the conference championship, and Florida State Seminoles head coach Jimbo Fisher doesn’t like it.
“Not everybody plays the same number of games and does the same thing,” Fisher said, as quoted in USA Today. “I think it’s ridiculous.”
Well the Big 12 is a conference with 10 teams and the conference champion is the team that finishes with the best record, the Baylor Bears in 2013. Baylor head coach Art Briles didn’t care too much for Fisher’s comments while making the rounds at Big 12 Media Day in Dallas, Texas.
“Jimbo Fisher, I think he needs to worry about the ACC, I guess if that’s the league they’re in,” Briles said, via the Dallas Morning News. “I’m not telling them how to do their business. Don’t come down here to Texas and try to tell me how to do mine. …
“I’m not concerned with what they’re doing because I’m concerned with Baylor and the Big 12.”
