    This is why we need a playoff....

    I can't believe this stuff, even college football is political now, governor calling bowl representatives, come on. I didn't like it when they switched to letting the computer pick the championship game, I hated it when they adjusted the bowl system so that virtually every team with a winning record (and some without) go to bowls, and now political favor can influence bowl games...this is making me sick.....RAAAAR!

    oh, well, I guess this is why I love college basketball so much more than football...

    While I think this is crazy, I dont think its a reason to have a playoff.

    I think there has been playoffs this year. Michigan vs OSU was a semi-final game. Notre Dame-USC nearly was, too.

    Re: This is why we need a playoff....

    I also don't think we need a playoff. If we had a playoff, late season meetings like those between USC-UCLA, Michigan-OSU, or Conference Championship games matching good teams would not have nearly the impact or excitement that they currently do.

    The only playoff I would support would be a FOUR team playoff, none of this eight or sixteen team crap. All those games merely present the BEST TEAMS more of a chance to lose a game on one bad night. Having a playoff that big decreases the importance of the regular season. In other sports, they play a series, because one game is not enough to decide which team is truly the best. In college football, we don't have that option. A playoff consisting of the BCS #1 vs. #4 and the #2 vs. #3 would be the only playoff I would endorse.


    Green hills for thy throne, and for crown a golden melody/Ringing in the hearts of all who bring thee love and loyalty/Dear Alma Mater, make our spirits great
    True and valiant like the bells of I-O-WA STATE!

    And thank you Stumpy for this:
