Yeah, you made it. Today’s buffet, no surprise, features plenty of playoff seasoning.
- Heismanpundit gets mocked here on occasion, but I don’t see anything wrong with his post decrying the creeping NFL-ization of college football.
- Here’s a preview of the Georgia-Florida game from the Gator perspective. Somebody hasn’t heard of Artie Lynch.
- Is there more to winning football games than running the ball, stopping the run and being on the plus side of giveaway-takeaways?
- Hopefully you’re not this naive, but if you’re still wondering who’s really driving the conference expansion bus, let Chuck Neinas clue you in: “Our television partners agreed that the only new member that would enhance the Big 12 value for television was Notre Dame.”
- Mark Richt is okay with a four-team playoff.
- You can have a four-team playoff with deserving teams, or you can have a four-team playoff with Big Ten participation. But evidently you can’t have both.
- Ivan Maisel has two reasons why that 12-year playoff time commitment may not be as strong as they’re trying to make it sound: “You have to think that the need for more money will arise in that time. And after a few years of team No. 5 screaming about being left out, the need to quell controversy will arise, too.”
- Gus Malzahn grabs another former SEC running back.
- Mack Brown thinks the new playoff money is another good reason for increasing player stipends.
