you do realize Garbage...What a year it must be when Ball State is in the top 15 and ND isn't
they're indiana's only hope. maybe next year valpo will get in on the action.
IU in the top five next year!
ND is bigger than any silly ranking system.
'cept for, of course, when BSU is in the top 15, then the ranking system is awesome.
I still say, set up a playoff with the winners of the big six conferences (Big East, ACC, SEC, Big Ten, Big 12, Pac 10) plus two at-large teams (ND, Boise St, 2nd place SEC, whoever earns it). To people who say the regular season would be meaningless by comparison - the regular season would mean everything, at least the conference schedule would. Work it out - Div II and III have.
Maybe some good will come out of our impending national economic collapse. We won't have banks or cars anymore, but we will have a Div I/FBS playoff since no one will be able to afford to sponsor bowl games.
it would be interesting to see if it works.
It would only benefit the fans. Not the schools or the conferences or the bowls. That's why they won't do it.
Yeah, but it seems like every year more and more coaches (and more and more influential coaches) are calling for some kind of playoff. But the fans are as passionate as ever, even with this current mess. They are as loyal to their franchise (college football) as Star Wars fans are to theirs.
Coaches are just employees. They really have no influence over the conference. (imo)
Floyd and Smith are out for the season.
They should be OK for the bowl game.
I am against a playoff, makes the final weeks of the football season, very exciting
And playoffs don't?
As a fan, I would like to see a playoff system. There is something appealing to me about the finality of having one clear national champion. It's true that the current system gives every week a "sudden death" feel, since just one loss can knock a team out of contention. But I think that if the playoff system is done right, the regular season can be just as exciting and we can still have a single national champ every year.
You know, cause big-time college football isn't quite "commercial" enough.
I agree completely.
Weiss calling the offensive plays for the rest of the season..
Big game for the Spartans this weekend against Penn State. A win there and a miracle Michigan upset of Ohio State gives MSU the Big Ten title!
ball state wins again last night.
Irish offensive coordinator Mike Haywood is interviewing for Ty Willingham's job at Washington this week.
Guy is gone regardless, that is the writing on the wall. Need to get rid of OL coach
Hey mister, you don't see me telling you how the Spartans should be run... stick to your own program!
