    I wonder if Vandy and the other SEC schools rejected the proposal because it would split the money with all D I-A football schools and not just the BCS conferences?

    Maybe that's the academics Chancellor Gee's talking about.

    I doubt that's Golly Gee's rationale, but I could see others thinking like that...

    This was always bound to end -- at least for the forseeable future -- with a "plus one."

    It's the only solution palatable to all parties involved, and it accomplishes what the playoff pushers want to see.

    My view: College football is the ultimate 12-week playoff as it is. If you lose two out of 12 games, can you really claim that you deserve a shot at a championship? I think in most years, it will be very easy to pick the 1 and 2 teams that deserve to be in the semifinals. Picking 3 and 4 will sometimes be obvious, sometimes it will be a major argument. The question will be, who does the picking and how is it done?
  8. No playoff. Scratch the BCS. Go back to the pre-1994 days with the bowls, etc.

    Look, people, there's nothing wrong with crowning two champions. Come to peace with it.

    A salient point... That way, Bama's bound to win three or four more this year,...

    Depends on each teams' schedule.
    Did Boise have as tough of a sked as Oklahoma or Auburn or Florida last season?
    Did Utah have a tough one?

    When the D-IA schools (or whatever stupid thing they want to call themselves now) convince every other sport in the NCAA, or hell, even just the other divisions of football, that a playoff is exactly the wrong thing to do, I'll buy that piece of crap train of thought.

    Who cares what the Securities and Exchange Commission says about this?
