Tobacco Road or Iron Bowl?

Alabama's championship makes it three in a row for the state. But is Alabama's football better than North Carolina's basketball, including 11 titles between Duke, North Carolina and NC State?

SportsNation

What is college football's all-time flagship program?

Alabama's second national championship in the past three seasons makes it the program of the moment, and there is plenty of history beyond that in Tuscaloosa. But is Alabama the all-time No. 1? Below you'll find the 10 programs with the most all-time wins, along with five other programs that won national titles in the BCS era.

Texas A&M has been flirting with leaving the Big 12 for a while now, but an early report that suggested it sent a letter of intent to withdraw from its home conference has been denied by the Aggies. SportsNation already determined that the Aggies need the Big 12 a lot less than the Big 12 needs the Aggies, but would Texas A&M leaving the conference hurt more than losing Colorado or Nebraska?


Big 12 or SEC?

It might be a foregone conclusion to some, but A&M still hasn't officially taken the plunge. Could it be reconsidering its earlier intentions?

SportsNation

Handling the SEC?

The Big 12 is a marquee conference, but the SEC defines football-mad; nearly every team is laden with NFL talent and committed to winning.

SportsNation

Time running out?

The Big 12 would be down to nine teams if A&M leaves, which would put its future as a major college athletic conference in jeopardy. Nebraska and Colorado already left, but would A&M leaving be the death knell?
