    College Bowl announcement/pregame thread

    I think the facilities are the big issue. There's so much talent across the Pacific for which Hawaii is the most convenient location. With the right coach and AD, I'd think they could thrive again. If things go sideways with Niumatalolo at Navy, I'd be all over him if I were Hawaii.

    Toronto Argonauts - What the heck are they doing?

    Just flipped it on -- pretty respectable crowd, although maybe they're all TiCats fans. Love football with snow coming down.

    CFB Week 14: Championship Week

    True, although imagine a world where the top six conference champs got in this year, and SDSU had won their game on Saturday. With Cincinnati already getting one spot, we'd have to choose between three-loss Utah and one-loss SDSU, where SDSU holds a head-to-head victory over Utah.

    Anything that codifies P5/G5 is lame, imo. Top six conference champions gives you the same result without the stink of a caste system.

    I'm going to use this as a jumping off point for an exercise I enjoy: if you were sports king, how would you crown a champion in 2022? Note: You are NOT required to do the same thing every year. If you want to schedule #1 v #2 this year, you're free to do a 16-team tournament next year. I think...

    2021 NCAA Football

    I'm not a tax or legal expert, but a non-profit is just an entity that does not aim to generate a profit for the owners. Collegiate players no longer being amateurs is not relevant. The NFL was a non-profit until like five years ago, and they only gave it up for PR reasons. The NHL still is, I...

    I disagree; it sort of is their job. Otherwise we could just be using the AP Poll or the old BCS formula or whatever. The purpose of the committee is to make sure the result is a compelling television product.

    He's saying they should run Bama/UGA in the semis to set up Michigan/Bama for the natty.

    Honestly, until they actually put Cincinnati in, I'm not 100% convinced they won't say "screw it" and just bump up Notre Dame. No chance we get Bama/UGA in the semis, imo.

    Montana State did win today.

    Is this Hutchinson related to Steve Hutchinson?

    I love that B1G ad so much, where they're like "oh yeah and Rutgers" at the end.

    The throw needed to be behind the receiver -- that was the only lane available. Sort of need to trust your receiver not to shovel the pass to the defender.

    At some point, it should evolve into a full college football game full of randomly selected students.

    Love it. Shades of the downfield pump fake.
