Why not 12? The NFL does 12. The four best teams get byes, while the other eight play in the first round. That way the regular season still has meaning (even though that is always a stupid argument by pro-BCS people. When you have o...

Alabama is recruiting extremely well nationally (just look at the 2 they've taken from LA), so losing out on some in-state guys for them isn't a huge deal. However, I'd hate to base the majority of my recruiting approach on grabbing out of state guys. They are generally much tougher to sign than in-...

AU is better than LSU right now. They did run the same play over and over, but when that play presents a defense with three different options to defend every time it can be tough to stop. Plus they go at a pace which makes it impossible to substitute. Just a hard offense to defend.
