    Re: SWAC that the conference will no longer have a title game

    What will this do for the MEAC and the playoff picture? If I remember correctly there was a handful of MEAC school that wanted to keep the playoffs.

    Is this in an attempt to build stability in case a few MEAC schools bolt for the Big South?

    The MEAC will continue to play in The Celebration Bowl. There were a few schools skeptical at first but right now everyone is all in on The Celebration Bowl.

    Correct. No one is leaving. The Celebration Bowl has been a financial and marketing windfall for the participating schools. Schools are trying their darnedest to improve their programs quickly before the initial contract runs out; so they can make an appearance.
    Save us Celebration Bowl! Save us!

    Re: SWAC that the conference will no longer have a title game

    Not a fan of getting rid of the SWAC championship game as it was well attended and served a great purpose of getting the best team in the conference into the playoffs and now into the Celebration Bowl. If any SWAC members did defect it would probably be both Alabama schools for the MEAC or OVC. If that happened I can't see the conference remaining much longer with possibly Jackson State & the LS schools all going to the Southland.

    In the interim starting in 2018 if a team so happens to not be chosen for the Celebration Bowl from both the MEAC & SWAC and have 9-10 wins on their resume its a good chance both conferences will still be represented in the playoffs.
