Pac-12: Coaches want nine league games for all conferences

Football coaches continually speak of worrying only about what they can control. Yet it became clear Monday that the Pac-12's coaches care a lot about something that's outside of their domain.

Pac-12 schools play nine conference games annually, plus a championship game for the division winners. The coaches want teams in other leagues to do the same, in the interest of having consistent standards for picking the four playoff teams.

Judging by Monday's media teleconference that wrapped up spring football, that was a big topic during the coaches' recent meetings in Scottsdale, Ariz.

Pac-12 commissioner Larry Scott is committed to staging nine league games, as well as increasing the difficulty of non-conference schedules. The Big 12 (with 10 members) has moved to nine conference games and the Big Ten will do the same in 2016. That leaves the SEC and the ACC as the major holdouts at eight games. The Big 12 lacks a championship game, with no divisional structure.
