One key subject that will affect everyone is the continued discussion of playoff expansion.  The committee working this offered up 63 possibilities... which includes 6, 8, 10, 12 and 16 team options 😲.  This article suggests the 4 team format is on borrowed time.  I think that is likely the case and feel an 8 team format would be a good first move.  Thoughts?

Spring games already happening.  I predict Sarkisian is a bust at Texas (but admittedly, I'm not a Sark fan 🙂)  Go Irish!!

I am amazed the format lasted this long given there are 5 conferences which has resulted in the Pac-12 never getting in, neverminded the years where the Irish are good and nab a spot without being in one of those conferences. I could see the Pac-12 and Big-12 pushing for 8 teams where the Power 5 conference champs get an automatic entry with 3 at large bids. This could finally give some of the smaller conference teams a chance. Though more likely would just put in an extra Big-10, SEC, and ACC teams getting in. The biggest advantage is that 8 games means that much more money for the NCAA and conferences.

Speaking of college football, I played 18 holes with RJ Fitzgerald - starting FB for Montana State.  The kid can really bomb them and has a solid short game too.  He was telling me that all NCAA players are getting a free year of eligibility regardless whether they played last season (Big Sky Conference did not).  That gives him two more years of eligibility and he might be able to get most of his masters program done.  He said it had been 642 days since they last played 😕

One of the things the NCAA got right on extending the eligibility for these athletes would really suck to have you last year modified oflr cancelled on you. Also good for him thinking of the master's degree.

I fully expect to see the M continue to fall even more into irrelevance this year.  It’s going to be great!

As an alum of App State and LSU, it was a tough year last year. Both of the coaches need to get the teams back to their winning ways! I’ve become used to having my Mountaineers win the Conference, so to see them struggle makes me question the coaching hire... The offense was WAY too predictable last year, so I’m hoping for better come fall.

On the plus side is that you'll be spared at least one loss 😉.

Yes, I also hope that this year we will have a normal season. I think the guys will show themselves at their best.

Also take a look at https://edubirdie.com/essay-rewriter here is a site for writing essays. I think that is likely the case and feel an 8 team format would be a good first move.

I really hope that this year everything will work out. really looking forward to the new season. If all goes well with Covid 19, then we are sure to have the best season. After all, both players and fans want to start the season. 🤠

I heard Notre Dame was his second choice... so close 😜.  Oh well, at least he went to another or my favorite teams.  

College football recruiting: J.T. Tuimoloau, No. 1 prospect in Class of 2021, commits to Ohio State - CBSSports.com

Early post spring predictions/rankings have some programs we haven't seen occupying these positions. Iowa State #6, Texas A&M #7, NC #8, and Cincinnati #9. I think the Bearcats are going to be a contender once again and possibly the team who plays well beyond the stats.

I'm thinking my Irish are a 50/50 making it to the playoffs this year.  2022 class commitments look outstanding but they'll need some help and luck this season IMO.

Any good or bad news about your favorite team?

I’ve already responded, but I feel like this is the year.  A breakthrough will happen, I will write it down… someone gets fired.

Maybe the equipment manager, but never Homeboy Jimmy.

One of college footballs legendary coaches and unique characters.  Bobby Bowden and FSU were made for each other.

Let's go Buckeyes!!! O-H-I-O Ok, I get it. It's easy rooting for one of the biggest of the big boys.

My outlook for the season, beyond expecting a Big 10 title revolves around 2 things. First is the expanded playoff. If you thought there was a big strength gap in team quality, the playoff has only increased that by elevating another half-dozen teams above everyone else (OSU, Bama, Clemson, Oklahoma, ND, and Georgia/LSU). I love the playoff over the BCS and I don't think they've gotten the teams wrong, it's just been unfortunate that some years that 4th team is a half step below the other 3 like Oklahoma in '19, Michigan St., And Washington. I'd like an 8 team playoff with auto bids for the 5 champs, and one for the best Group of 5 team. The conference title games are becoming less important every year, so if they go bigger than 8, scrap the title games.

The other thing is this news that Oklahoma and Texas are jumping to the ES-EEEE-SEE. I think this is probably a bad move for both schools, especially Texas. It probably also means the Big12 could implode. I can't see them calling up schools like Houston and Memphis and still being considered one of the power 5. It's more likely that the Big 10 and Pac 12 pick the bones too. And even with the handshake agreement with ACC/B10/PAC12 this blowup probably leaves the PAC 12 on some tenuous footing as well given that they've already been the odd conference out come playoff time for several years now. They might not be long either. Then it's only a matter of time before we wind up with the dreaded super conference.

I've actually got a reasonable plan to save college football from itself. I've gone on a while so tell me if y'all want to hear my hypothetical proposal. This is my favorite sport to follow but it just keeps doing the dumbest things possible.

As a Michigan man.  I am tired of the constant beat downs.  But you know what.  At the end of the day, it is just a game.  Now, if Tiger was down a shot going into 18 on the 72nd hole against anyone else in the world… I would want him to make a birdie every single time… so I get it.  
 

I do think that college football has been ruined over the past 5-6 years, maybe longer.  I could go on for days about it, but I’ll save the hot air for another time.

 

Go Football Team!

If you don't mind chatting with a Buckeye, what's your biggest beef with the sport?
