I dont care about BC making it. Selection should not be completely arbitrary and conference champs of major conferences should be rewarded. In most years, the UCFs of the world should be rewarded for running the table, at least the best of them. Then you can have two at large bids to pleasure yourself over the two SEC teams that "are the best" but couldnt win their conference.

Clemson at times this season was threatened with the possibility of not making it even if they went undefeated because people were rightfully shitting on Clemson's conference. That would have been a huge mistake. Fortunately luck took it out of the equation and made this broke system work.


Agree 100%.

Playoff should be 8 teams but 3+1+12 games is a lot of football for one season. Do we go back to a 11 game season than? A lot of teams would be upset about that. That’s the only roadblock in my opinion.

Who did that? The selection committee or paid trolls like Feinbaum? I effing hate the “what if” scenarios that have never happened. You don’t redo entire the system because things could potentially happen. If a Power 5 conference champion is undefeated and left out of the playoffs, we can have that discussion. Until then, find something else to bitch as yet another year goes by without the slightest question as to who the best team is in college football.


The system stinks. Win your conference.


Agree 200%.

Main thing that impressed me was his elusiveness in pocket. He’s not a very good athlete but several times they had him lined up and he was able to escape


30/46 320 1 2

Switch the TDs and INTs and I would take that any game in a heartbeat. Because of one pick with the game on the line against the best team in college football over the past 3 years and he’s suddenly not elite? JFC

Good to see HJS defending the sanctity and time honored tradition of our 6 year system.

I'll watch it. I love those film rooms already but it will be even better having a BC coach in there.
