Default Re: Paterno backs college playoff system, calls excuses for absence 'bogus'

So we are all in concurence that we need a playoff system, we can argue the strengths of conferences forever without ever reaching a conclusion. But it is entertaining. So you all just need to pressure your school presidents to get involved in discussing a playoff system. We took care of that already down south, the SEC is in favor of a playoff system..

only because they feel that Auburn got robbed when they went 12-0, but refuse to admit the fact Auburn played the Citidel that same season and would have gotten smoked by either of the teams in the title game that year. Smoked I Say, whooped like children playing against men I say! Yes I say!

Nope, they'd have gotten smoked by USC. For sure. Auburn had a very suspect schedule and way too many close calls that year to leap frog over Oklahoma or USC.

The real problem was that the SEC didn't have a great year, and Auburn, as all SEC teams seem to do, just assumed that "We don't need to play anybody OOC because our SEC schedule is already tough enough".

Well, it wasn't. And they got burnt for it. And they still didn't learn their lesson. But it seems the SEC is slowly but surely coming around to the reality that they MUST leave the Southeast and they MUST play OOC games because the conference will always ultimately still be judged on how they play OOC and not in conference.

Alas, I still doubt we will EVER see a Florida or Alabama or Auburn play in the snow in September in the Big House or Camp Randall or the Shoe, but they are coming around at least a little.

i agree, it is highly unlikely (it rarely snows in September)

fwiw, penn state and alabama have a home and home scheduled for 2010, 2011

I agree with Paterno. The NCAA needs a playoff system. This current BCS system is BS. I would go with a 16 team playoff system so top elite teams play in it.

Only need top 8, not 16. the 16th team has no business in the discussion. Sorry, but look at the last 5 years top 25 finish and really evaluate if you think team 16 would have beaten any of the top 8. The 9th team has an arguement, and we can deal with their whining at a later point. "Dude, you were ranked 9th, that's not close" and move on from there. Take the winner of each Major Conference, ACC, SEC, B 12, B 10, P 10, East, and then 2 others. That's all that is needed.

8 teams playoff. Done. Title decided.

God I should just run the entire place. I totally should.

I'm going now to build my clone army and death star so I can take over and just fix everything that needs fixed, starting with the College Football championship. Then I'll focus on that "poverty" thing.
