All of this so so subjective and no other sport is like this. It is the MONEY that's ruined college sports with the bowl games. Everytime I hear "the Grandaddy of them all" I want to puke because I know that these are not open to everyone playing in it for the most part. That's really screwed up. Look at what could happen if tOSU runs the table. They could be the ap#1 team without playing in a bowl or conference game! How would you feel about that?
We need a playoff where all teams are given an equal shot. KState wins out and just because they lay an egg on the road at Baylor they are discounted for their body of work? That's sad.
The major bowl games "plus one" is shite because of alliances. This whole freaking thing seems exclusive and the only way to eliminate it is shutting down the bowl games or opening them up further.
It could work with the 4 bowls and more at large bids, then moving forward with 2 more games. Of course those bowl games would have to be played around Christmas or the week before to avoid getting into the next semester. the problem with thag is people aren't travelling at that time of year for a playoff. Also, these kids are missing family time. Most importantly these bowls would lose $$$$$.
lets say they did that the change i propse then the conference championship games would need to go. That's too many games and this isn't pro football. These guys do need to study!
