Default This is what makes College football great

Every week is like a playoff game for the top teams. USF over WVU, Colorado over OU, Illinois over PSU, Texas likely going down, Rutgers in a shootout, etc, etc...

Just goes to show that it isn't just the Big ten that is vulnerable.

Yep, but still, we need a playoff system in the BCS. So many teams are kept out because of one loss.

Rutgers and Texas just went down. But, yeah, this doesn't change my mind about the "BCS Bowl Tournament" consisting of the top 8 teams.

8?

Nope. No reason why there can't be 16. It will only take four weeks. That way, you can also throw in some teams from smaller divisions that seem really good.

A 16 team playoff would take the college football season rather deep into basketball season. Remember, football is played once a week. Basketball is played a few times a week that's why the 64 team field for the NCAA Tourney works.

First of all. Rutgers and Texas in the same sentence? And we're still talking about football?

The fairy tales are evaporating - but so are a few 'powerhouses.'

Today is NOT what is great in college football. It's only great if we see them play it out.

But college football is being reduced to a f**king beauty contest or olympic boxing in Korea. I still believe firmly that USC is the best roster in college football. And even as a fanatic everyone should prove it on the field.

Showing up to play is part of the game!!!!!!!

The Steelers 'miracle' run is the best example

This makes me laugh.

Have you always hated the Gators or is it because of the whole football and basketball thing.

I'm still bitter, lol.

I always liked Florida when the Ol' Ball Coach was down there, he was always good for a laugh or two. I like Urban Meyer too, he's got himself quite the program down there in Gainseville.

But seeing how I am still bitter, eff the Gators!
