SBNation's Conference Re-Draft Has Begun!

Haven't heard about the SB Nation Conference Re-draft project? C'mon, yes you have. We debated and whined over it for like two whole days. It was fun. But if you need a memory refresher click here.

Rounds one and two of the SB Nation Conference Re-Draft happened this past week. Clandestine meetings in top-secret, remote locations were conducted by our sports blogging overlords in order to get this ball rolling and, hopefully, put a start to something fun and discussion-worthy for the college football offseason.

With Red Cup Rebellion having the misfortune of drawing the last pick of the first round, we had to sit idly by as powerhouses like Texas and Florida were quickly snatched away. With those two, along with Alabama, Ohio State, and Southern Cal being taken with picks one through five, it fell to us to select the program around which our conference would be based with pick number six.

The team we selected is after the jump, y'all:

With the sixth pick in the SB Nation "our football bloggers are bored" Project, Red Cup Rebellion selected...



The Fightin' Tigers of Louisiana State University

Our reasoning is simple: over the past ten years, LSU's won two BCS titles, a CWS title, earned a trip to the Final Four, and probably won a bunch of other sports that people don't watch. Couple that with a disgustingly rabid fan base, insanity, proximity to New Orleans, creole food, and cash money making potential, and the LSU Tigers were truly the best pick available to the Cup. So now they're on our side - but only for the purposes of this little exercise in offseason silliness.

Here are the results of the draft thus far:

Round-Pick Conference Commissioner Selection
1-1 Conference #1 BC Interruption TEXAS
1-2 Conference #2 Black Heart Gold Pants FLORIDA
1-3 Conference #3 Team Speed Kills ALABAMA
1-4 Conference #4 Big East Coast Bias OHIO STATE
1-5 Conference #5 House of Sparky USC
1-6 Conference #6 Red Cup Rebellion LSU
       
2-7 Conference #6 Red Cup Rebellion MICHIGAN
2-8 Conference #5 House of Sparky NOTRE DAME
2-9 Conference #4 Big East Coast Bias FLORIDA STATE
2-10 Conference #3 Team Speed Kills OKLAHOMA
2-11 Conference #2 Black Heart Gold Pants PENN STATE
2-12 Conference #1 BC Interruption GEORGIA

 

Hopefully, the folks at And the Valley Shook will give our reasoning for the second-round selection of Meecheegan (which is mostly money, money, money, and money). Once they do, I'll link it up.
