i could not agree more

i could not agree more. rick reilly has nailed it on the head.

why not use the bowl games as the playoff? rotate the bowl that serves as the national championship game like we do now. top 8 teams play in four bowl games. the winners play in another two. then create a new, real national championship game to decide the winner. this way, we’d preserve bowl games *and* we’d have a playoff system. the only thing standing in the way is the bowl boards and major universities, who monopolize the cash and use their size and influence to invite lesser teams that draw higher ratings.

enough already. time for a playoff system. besides, the old argument that football seasons would be too long and student athletes would be taken out of too much class is moot now anyways. they are, in fact, professional athletes, just not paid in cash.  oh wait…
