NCAA Football-2023

I’ve been a lifetime fan of college football, and a long time Texas Longhorns fan. I must say that the results this year have really exposed how jacked up the playoff system is. They need to fix this badly. How does a committee of guys sitting in a conference room somewhere determine outcomes for athletes, who have competed so closely down, to the wire? SMH.

I've noticed this syndrome in several sports and have concluded that it's a case of "All ad dollars, all the time." This is how teams with a .500 record are still considered for playoff berths late in the season. Hell, I'm surprised the World Series isn't strung out till Christmas the way things have gone.

There was a time when it was an honor to play in a New Years Day Bowl. not any more. The Cotton Bowl will be held on the 29th and the Citrus Bowl on the 1st with 10-3 Iowa playing the 8-4 TN. Volunteers. Ohio State which is 11-1 will be playing 10-2 Missouri in the Cotton Bowl. For the most part the bowls are meaningless and the attendance at them reflects that.
The only reason some people get lost in thought is because it's unfamiliar territory.

And FSU 13-0 gets nuttin. ACC sucks

Not a big follower, but my money was well spent for 5 yrs at FSU
and I enjoyed homecoming weekends at Bobby Bowen's brick house.

Sitting in a stadium with 80,000 screaming kids will move you.

The CFP committee is a bad joke. Choosing Alabama over undefeated FSU is a travesty. Nick (asshole) Saban started campaigning for an SEC team to be included before the SEC championship.
Whenever I'm asked about who my favorite college football team is, I always say "whoever can beat Alabama."
Go Michigan, beat the Crimson Flow.

Hook 'em Horns! Gonna have to pull for the home state team.
