Between the site not working so well and me working on a few other things, I haven’t been able to get on here lately. Sorry about that.
One thing I have been working on is a major project- a completely new, radical, never seen before, never even imagined before plan for college football to have a playoff.
There’s a lot more to it than most people think. I don’t have a whole lot of free time in the spring (my tennis season) but when I’m not spending it beating my friends at Madden or watching Tosh.o or Family Guy, I am doing extensive research on every little detail that would factor into creating a college football playoff. Yes, extensive research.
From the huge factors, such as the selection process to the tiny factors, such as the kickoff times of the games and the TV networks that will broadcast it, every single one of them must be considered when creating a playoff. If there’s even one tiny hole- one minuscule detail that eludes the playoff creator’s mind- the entire playoff is shot down because the Cartel (read: BCS Bozos) doesn’t want a playoff. They want everything just like it is- up to and including the complaints of fans, players, coaches, athletic directors and even conference commissioners. Basically, in the Cartel’s mind, you get one shot to come up with a better idea- so it better be perfect.
So, OK, Cartel, you want a perfect, well thought out plan for an alternate ending to college football’s season?
You’ll get it.
But first, there’s plenty more to uncover, such as more examples of the shocking greed of the bowl games, the ones that are supposedly all in good faith for everybody involved. Does not giving a single cent to Katrina victims qualify the Sugar Bowl as “good faith” or better yet “an experience worth the hometown’s while” no no no no no it doesn’t I don’t need to wear out the question mark on my keyboard for such a silly rhetorical question.
How about Big 10 czar Jim Delany taking multiple shots at his conferences’ best basketball programs to support a system that even he has admitted is far from perfect?
And going back to bowl games’ greediness- well, three words, Fiesta Bowl Scandal.
That’s just a sampling.
There’s so much wrong with the current system, but if you’re going to shoot it down, you need to be prepared to back up your “retarded”, “gay”, or “BS” slur because if you want to change it, you’ll need a replacement system. And you get far enough, meaning it gets to the Cartel, you better have done your homework. One flaw means the end.
That’s why I’m taking the time to scour the web for some more facts, numbers, and quotes from everybody even remotely connected to the BCS. I’m not going to miss anything here. Remember, I only get one shot at this, so it has to be perfect.
In other news, Kenny Boynton is coming back (huge sigh of relief). Now we wait on Bradley Beal…
