Man that was awesome.... Pure football glory at it's best doods. College needs a playoff. Sure you bowl lovers can argue this was a great game which is why Bowls are great. But can you imagine Bosie State playing Ohio State next week or something? Man there would be no limit to the amount of hype and build up to the game. Red hot Bosie State trying to knock off the number one... That would keep me watching for sure!
That's just the thing Sniper. They can still have all the Bowl games but use them in a playoff system so that they actually mean something.
I watch some of the Bowl games just because I love football but if the game is a blowout I won't watch because it doesn't mean anything when it comes to the NC. The games only mean something to the 2 schools playing in them.
If they used the Bowl games in a playoff system I would watch every single one of the "playoff" Bowl games because they actually mean something when it comes to the NC. Give more teams a chance. You could still have all the Bowl games and make the whole system much more exciting and meaningful for more teams & fans. I bet the ratings would go up because more people would watch games that actually mean something. And when the ratings go up that means you can charge more $ for advertising which is what this is all about anyway.
Just think what the NFL would be like if they did it like college. Chicago plays SD in the SB because they are the #1 seeds in both conferences. Then the #2 seeds play for 3rd place, the #3 seeds play for 5th place, etc. That would totally suck and who would really care about any of the games besides the SB except for fans of those teams?
Playoffs baby. Wake up NCAA Division 1. Try to name any other sport that doesn't have a playoff system. You can't because division 1 college football is the only division of any sport that doesn't have a playoff system. And they could have these meaningful games during the 3-4 (or 5) weeks that the top teams have off after playing their last regular season game. That's another thing that's BS. Play all year then take a month off before playing in the biggest game of their season.
