Jimbo Fisher knows what’s wrong with college football.
On the eve of a potential shift in the ACC’s scheduling, Florida State Seminoles coach Jimbo Fisher advocated for uniform schedules across the Power 5 leagues and a college football commissioner.
“I’d like to play for a championship where everyone has the same rules,” he said. “… You don’t think we need a commissioner and a set of rules to make things even? We’re the only sport in America that doesn’t have the same set of rules for everybody that plays.”
Yeah, moar NFL. That’s the ticket.
How far do you want to push even, Jimbo? You wanna operate on, say, Wake Forest’s football budget? That would be fair. You think it might be a good idea to reduce the scholarship limits to spread the talent out farther? That would make things more even.
I suspect your conception of what rules need to be evened and Mike Leach’s might be different.
While we’re at it, who do you have in mind for college football czar? Who’s the guy or gal who could make Delany and Sankey willingly cede authority? Yeah, me neither.
It’s amazing to me the number of people who believe the best thing college football can do is to trash what makes it so unique, its regional roots.
