What an embarrassment this has become.. I am certainly glad the this system is being canned and teams can play it out to become the Champion. 4 teams is at least a start.

All this build up and the NCAA has this egg laid upon it collective faces again. The clock is ticking you fat cats.
I think when there's enough will and aggression, there's no shortage of talent either.

Yeah.. I've always been a huge vocal proponent against the playoff system. But I will admit that 45 days between a team's last regular season game and the National Championship is out of hand. I never liked the BCS, and have always agreed that it HAS to go, but never fully adopted the playoff system as a valid replacement. I may be wrong. But regardless.. The BCS and it's effin' computer needs to die, ASAP.

Oh, and SEC/ESPN need to get out of each other's wallets.

I hate the whole bowl system. Forcing the colleges to buy a certain amount of tickets and then selling others online is outrageous.

Was there a game?

Who won? Should I care?

Oh, yes, I knew who was playing. One team that makes Nick Saban God. The other that thinks itself God incarnate, the Duke of college football. Bleh. If there ever was a game that deserves a -3 t -2 game, this would be it.

College football has become like MLB and the NBA for me. Plus the ethos of NCAA football is part of everything that is wrong with higher education today.

I rarely watch it any more.

And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.

certainly are. but everyone will be focusing on all the rest of the crap so I am going to add this into the mix.
But when you consider it ends up being tens and thousands of dollars per institution and most of the colleges are state funded it is the tax payer that ends up picking up the tab for all of this. If the states were all in the black it would not be as big of a deal but when many or most states bankrupt (except ND but no one wants to watch their college teams play anyway.) or nearly so it is an issue.

We had it on for about 5 minutes cumulative last nite. I didn't care but for some reason my wife wanted to check in during commercial breaks on her other shows.
I hate the SEC They are really nothing more than a minor league for the NFL. But how everyone swoons over the irish even more.
