Nope not buying it. I still want a playoff. If not having a playoff is so good, then why isn't that the norm in other sports. EVERY single team athletic endeavor has a playoff to crown their champion...except I-A football. Why don't the top two teams in the NFL after the regular season just play in the Super Bowl. It's the same logic. If Indy beats NewEngland and Pittsburg in the regular season, those two teams are eliminated from contention. That would ratchet up intensity, knowing that EVERY single game is important. How come no one is clamoring for that? Don't try to sell me on tradition, cause if you look at the playoff format now and 20 years ago, there's been a few changes. I'm not the kind to be all torn up about it, but there should be a playoff.
nope. no playoff. there is a reason i'm up all day watching college football, but sleep through most of the day on sunday. i'm not saying it's fair. it's not. but nothing is fair. a playoff is not fair. maybe it's a little more fair than the current system, but it's a LOT more boring. new england patriots at 3-3? don't care. they still can win the superbowl in january. they could lose up to 6-7 games and still have a chance to win it all. please. i'm not willing to give up alot of excitement for a system that may just be a little more fair.
Here take this! If Wilbon says it, it must be right... http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/9809500/
wilbon barely watches college football. plus wilbon grew up in chicago (pro town) and works in dc (protown). he wants college ball to be just like proball. he's one of our less-enlightened ones. :-)
