    I prefer a real playoff, but this is progress.

    What next? A 30-team over-the-top-rope Royal Rumble at the 2010 Rose Bowl?

    A POST EXCLUSIVE, indeed.
    Without a named source in the piece

    If that's what the Post says, it's gospel to me.

    Hasn't all of this been speculated before? Only now The Post has decided to put a "possible" date of 2011 (hey, why not 2014?) on it and quote anonymous sources as saying "it's going to happen."
    I think we know eventually it's going to happen.

    Isn't that what they call an all-star game?

    a plus-one game would be worthless. if they're going to make a playoff happen it needs at least 8-16 teams.

    Spirited, I'm assuming they chose that year as it's the first after the current BCS deal is to expire.

    I think it's feasable with eight teams. Three rounds would fit in at the end of the season before the traditional New Years day Bowl games.

    One problem: The BCS runs out in 2010, but IIRC, the Rose Bowl's agreement with the Big 10 and Pac 10 goes to 2014.

    The sooner it happens, the sooner I can give a shit about big-time college football.

    OK, I probably won't. But I'll have less reason not to give a shit then than I do now.
