I find it really hard to care about the excitement of a potential playoff at the FBS level when I have awesome postseason match-ups like FIU v. Marshall, Ohio v. Utah State, Western Michigan v. Purdue, Wyoming v. Temple, and Illinois v. UCLA to look forward to. Playoff? Come on, subby.

It's a shame that the NCAA doesn't require the same academic standards for the poor athletes in FCS as they do in FBS. If you want to be a true student-athlete, with an emphasis on the student portion, you pretty much are forced to play in FBS, otherwise you will fail all you exams due to the time consumption of the playoff system.

Krymson Tyde:

You didn't hear? Before taking the field for any more games all players will have to pass an Intro to Calculus exam. Fifty questions. No multiple choice.

The service academies and the Ivy league will rule for years to come.

This year, the SEC stands for the:
Scandal
Enhanced
Conference

Kind of hard to field a good team when other conferences have their teams effectively neutered by scandal.

If they wiped off Paterno's name off the championship records, it's also good for doing it to the SEC this year.

so FedEx Field is supposed to be a neutral site? That's practically Navy's backyard, just like Yankee Stadium is Army's.

Is there a conference that doesn't meet that description at this point? I mean, good Lord, we have USC currently on a bowl ban, plus Alabama, Miami, Ohio St., Penn St., Syracuse, Marquette apparently now, I know I'm leaving names out.

That one-handed grab in the MSU/SHSU game had to be the play of the year - at least in FCS.

I think he meant the opposite... the SEC *benefited* from scandal, because none of the top SEC schools were caught in a scandal recently.

It was a nice play. SHSU is owning this game though.

Everybody says they love college football playoffs but nobody watches them unless they care about one of the schools. Well, one or two other people watch but they are the kind of people who watch useless sports that are painful to watch for irony or something. Like womens basketball or darts or soccer.

Yup, I wonder if Navy will forfeit in the first or second quarter.

Oh Woody, there is no way we can lose ten in a row to these commies. Right? Right? Right?

Right?

They told us that most of them couldn't be shown on the national feed due to the massive copyright issues. Spoofs run rampant and it's a great example of fair use but a terrible example of copyright acknowledgement.
