“At the end of the day, we’re 18- to 22-year-old college students so there’s a lot going on.”

When the next round of playoff expansion comes, I’m sure there will be a lot of talk from Bill Hancock about how the suits have carefully and thoughtfully considered student-athletes’ welfare in their decision.

It’s just that there’s so much money.


UPDATE:  Moar.

    I sometimes think you actually want more playoffs.

    I do not want an extended playoff, but I suspect Ben Boulware wouldn’t mind another game so much if his team entered an eight team playoff seeded somewhere between 5th and 8th.

    Hell this would just get those 18 – 22 year old slackers to appreciate the NFL 16 game season. I kid I kid.

    I’m thinking the kid does not know the meaning of the work literally.

    It would be exactly one more game, for only two teams, than is currently played currently with four teams. And in the same time frame. Jeez Ben, I don’t know how you could possible survive that. Another game would replace a couple of practices, I think and extra game would be easier.

    IMHO four teams was always asinine. Why would you create a playoff and not include at least the P5 conf. champs? Eight teams always seemed more logical to me…

    In a six game playoff it’s the same number of games for the top two teams if they each get a bye. I think that is the inevitable next step.

    When they go to 8, will they consider letting players play 5 years by doing away with the redshirt to add more bodies?

    “If we had to do another game after this, God no. I’d literally die.” Shotguns two beers and reaches around to “playfully” grab the reporter’s nutsack before stating that global warming is hoax created by China.

    There’s a guy whose quotes will help solidify your moral high ground on playoff expansion.
