Why not Cincy for all sports and BYU as a football only? Then you don't have to worry about the Sunday thing or having a conference with a huge footprint outside of football. ...

[quote]I used to love the BCS--and still do--but I don't think this year took anything away from the regular season. If anything, it added to it. Years like '05 where there are 2 teams that are clearly the most deserving are likely to be rare. But there HAS to be an incentive to go 12-0 instead of 1...

Playoff could be as big as 12 and the regular season would still have plenty of meaning.
Whoever decided on just a four team playoff should be fired. Five power conferences and just four spots was just asking for trouble. Should have done it right and gone with 6, 8 or 12. ...

At least six teams....
Baylor at Florida State vs Bama
Ohio State at TCU vs Oregon
I think a deserving six teams could be found every year. ...
| Coaching Changes|| re: Nebraska Should Have Hired Craig Bohl - fargobison on 12/4/14 at 1:33 pm|
Agreed, guy won every big game his last three years at NDSU. Including winning at K-State, would love to see what he could have done with Nebraska's resources. Would have brought power football back to Lincoln.

Well I think they are stuck in Oregon's shadow unless they have a Phil Knight type of donor that I don't know about.
OSU is what? The 8th or 9th best job in the Pac 12? They are playing against a stacked deck. ...
| Coaching Changes|| re: Mike Riley to Nebraska - fargobison on 12/4/14 at 12:47 pm|
Doubt it, what was OSU football before he got there? From 1972-1996 they most games they had won in a season was 4. Riley had that job for as long as he wanted. ...
| Coaching Changes|| re: Who will be Oregon State's new HC? - fargobison on 12/4/14 at 12:22 pm|
Beau Baldwin would be a guy to look at. He has done great things at Eastern Washington, really good offensive mind. Won a national title a few years back, beat Oregon State last year and gave Washington all they could handle this year. ...

They may as well drop football if their program has sunk to that level.
I would disown my school's football team if they made that hire. How would he build a staff? Recruit? Have a clue how to deal with the NCAA rules and regulations? Zero college coaching experience and played at New Mexico Sta...

If they would have just seeded UNI who is a much better team than Chattanooga some of this would have been avoided. Still would have had NDSU-SDSU but at least UNI and ISUR would have been avoided. ...

What a joke that they all play each other in round 2. Not really a surprise though, this is the same committee that seeded UNH #1 and NDSU #2 because NDSU lost later in the season. That was the reason the committe...
| More Sports Board|| re: Which team grabs the last CFB Playoff spot? - fargobison on 12/1/14 at 10:42 am|
Three close teams, I will go with the eye test and pick TCU. In my opinion they are the best of the three. I actually think it is easier to pick TCU with Ohio State still in the discussion, makes it easier to put less significance on the head to head and just pick the best of the three. ...

[quote]Just scanned the thread so I may have overlooked it, but has Bohl been mentioned? Or is the timing just not right since he has only been at Wyoming a year and hasn't proved it there yet?
Well if they are looking for a head coach that wins big games Bohl is their guy. That said hi...
