It's Official: College Football Will Have a Playoff

34

Also official: 1. It will expand. 2. It will create all manner of problems and controversies, solving nothing. 3. It will suck, but not enough to stop me from loving a sport that doesn't love me back, which has been true of just about every change in college football in my adult lifetime. Go 'Dawgs!

92% of Americans and 78% of Georgians Are Wrong About the BCS

15

In an incredibly scientific poll conducted two days after the Super Bowl for the first time in modern memory even arguably paired the NFL’s two best teams, 92 per cent of Americans participating in the internet balloting indicated that the National Football League does a better job of producing a deserving champion than the Bowl Championship Series. Georgians gave the BCS its second-highest approval rating (behind only the denizens of the state to our immediate left, currently the home of the BCS championship trophy) with 22 per cent. For the record, while I did not vote in the poll, I am in that 22 per cent, a figure which doubtless would have been considerably higher the day after the New York Giants upset the New England Patriots. It bears pointing out, by the way, that Plessy v. Ferguson was an 8-1 decision and the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution passed 416-0 in the House and 88-2 in the Senate. As P.J. O’Rourke has pointed out, it’s not the divisive issues on which folks are split down the middle that pose the biggest threats; it’s the issues about which there is eerie unanimity that run the greatest risk of disastrously bad consequences, such as Jim Crow, the Vietnam War, and a Division I-A college football playoff. Go ‘Dawgs!

To All College Football Fans Who Favor a Playoff:

The NCAA is considering inviting 96 teams to the Big Dance. Whether you think the optimal number of invitees to a Division I-A college football playoff is six, eight, or ten, brace yourself, because it won't be that small for long. Give it a few years, and the "There are too many bowls!" crowd will be complaining (correctly) that there are too many playoff games. Get ready for the New York Giants of college football . . . and be careful what you wish for, because you just might get it. Go 'Dawgs!

All Quiet on the Tuscaloosa Front

62

Nothing appears imminent, according to David Hale, so we continue to wait and watch. For the record, the Dallas Cowboys are scheduled to take on the Minnesota Vikings at 1:00 p.m. on Sunday, January 17. If Kirby Smart decides to stay put, all of Bulldog Nation probably needs to watch that game and pull hard for the Vikes (the team Brett Favre plays for, not the drug to which he became addicted). Sorry, ausdawg85, but pro loyalties should mean no more to fans than they do to NFL players and owners; we have to be true to our school. Go 'Dawgs!
