USA Today hosts a roundtable discussion on the topic of whether college football games are too damned long (predictably, the panel splits 2-2), but as far as I’m concerned, Paul Myerberg wins the day with this:
I don’t think there should be any adjustments for time to shorten games. What, the season isn’t short enough as it is? I’m in favor of games taking days on end and the college season running for seven days a week, 52 weeks a year. My dream is for a game between No. 1 and No. 2 lasting three days and 25 overtimes.
The only people who moan about the games being too long are television executives and reporters on deadline. Since we don’t print a paper on Sundays I say let’s keep things exactly as they are.
College football is like beer. You can never have too much.
