Emmert: No 'true national championships' if some conferences pay players

+

One conference, the SEC, just finished a seven-year title run. Its members did this in large part by spending more money on football things, including things that entice players to come play for them. The last 15 AP national championships were won by a group of 10 schools. The last 60 AP titles have been won by 22 schools. Of FBS' 128 current programs, 101 have never finished No. 1 in the poll, which began in 1936. There is no parity in college athletics, there never has been, and there never will be.
