#DearAndy: Conference championship deregulation, program rebuilds and barbecue smokers
Wednesday April 8th, 2015

#DearAndy goes to an all-video format this week. Andy Staples answers your questions from Twitter on…

• Will conferences stick to divisions when league championship games are deregulated? Once conference title games are reportedly freed from the 12-team, two-division requirements by 2016, should leagues drop their divisions altogether?

• Will the SEC take advantage of deregulated conference championships to get more games between inter-divisional schools? Does something need to be done to reduce the competitive imbalance between the SEC East and West?

• Which rebuild will be tougher to watch: Michigan or Florida? How much improvement can Jim Harbaugh and Jim McElwain generate in Year 1?

• Should a smoker and grill go on the deck of a house or in the yard? Let’s break down some barbeque safety techniques.
