College Football Playoffs is an insulting farce.

It should be a 16 team field, with 15 and 16 getting in via a 1 game playoff between ranked 15-18 and ranked 16-17. The top 4 teams should get a bye while 5-16 decide the second tier games. 1 rank gets weakest surviving team, 2 the next......

Most game can be played in existing bowls within the continental US, but 1 and 2 get their first opponent on their campus. All surviving teams get one week off around Christmas (needed a holiday marker, that was it).

The changes would make the process more interesting.

2. I was referring to the playoff that has Alabama, Clemson, ect.

But North Dakota State would qualify to be in the 16 team field, or in the playoff to get in.

5. People multitask.

I watch football while doing lots of things. The things you listed do not preclude football.

7. You mean like plays?

No. But professional football is a lot more than X's and O's. A lot of it is about finding solid hardworking people and managing them. Given that it's Cleveland that is looking it her, what can go wrong for her? Not like there is a deeper bottom to that barrel.

8. I have watched football for over 50 years and I

 

at least admit to it that my real knowledge is minimal at best. When you mention things like intangibles one of my good friends has a test that all the every player in the NFL takes. It is not the wonderlic. It is www.athletetypes.com. The teams that use the service win at a 60% clip. I cam tell you what every player scored. I have taken the test. My friend was invited to the combine. He ran 4.40 forty. He knew his body could 't take pro footbal. I guarantee he knows more about football. He was a 3 star athlete. He holds the single season HR record in Michigan. he even got a hit off of Steve Avery.

He would be much more worthy of being on the committee. We laugh at Condi.

10. I admit my knowledge is minimal as well

When you start getting into 'concepts' t can be pretty confusing. Pro players are smart to be able to keep up with it all.
