In pursuit of another college football playoff championship, Alabama will play against demanding opponents such as Florida, Texas A&M and Louisiana State University. The Tides will also face Mercer, who ranked fifth in the Southern League last season.
Georgia will face Charleston South, who lost 62 points in a recent game against an SEC opponent. Oklahoma will play a game with Catamounts of West Carolina, which will end in six games under 0.500 in 2019. This is what often happens in the 12th game of college football, which is as important to the sport as the “flying wedge” formation.
Yes, that’s right: it should be banned.
As early as 2005, the NCAA board of directors executed one of the most shocking money plunders in the history of college sports, and we all know that a lot has been said about it. Apart from adding a home gate to the power plan, there is no good reason to approve the expansion of the college football regular season to 12 games.
If the leaders of the sport seriously consider expanding the playoff structure to include 12 teams, and possibly four games, then there is even less reason for it to be established now.
The late Myles Brand was an excellent man during his presidency and an effective leader of the NCAA, but it is hard to believe that he did not laugh while defending the expansion of the schedule, declaring “season It will not be extended; it just means that Goodbye Week will be cancelled.”
There are also comedic discussions about schedule growth in newspaper reports, which suggests that there may be more high-level non-conference games, and even regional competitions. In the 15 seasons since then, Pete and Penn State have played four games.
No, it is always all about money. This is not a small number. Each FBS school has participated in the income growth in its own way, whether it is through playing additional home games (if it has scheduling rights) or getting on the road to get guaranteed spending.
The proposal to expand the playoffs to 12 teams tripled the number of teams involved and more than tripled the number of tournament games. The winners of the six highest-ranked conferences will receive automatic bidding, which means that at least one team from outside the Autonomous Fifth conference will have representatives.
This means that the revenue pool of the playoffs will be greatly expanded, including TV revenue and ticket revenue. In this system, it is guaranteed that all meetings have a representative in a certain sense, which means that all meetings will share this richness in a certain sense.
The public has many reactions to the rudeness of a team that enters the 12-team CFP extending the season to as many as 16 or 17 games. If a team enters the final with or without a goodbye, it will be the number. And, on the surface, those who oppose this concept are correct.
However, their concerns can be resolved simply and easily through a one-page NCAA legislation, which can be rubber stamped by the board of directors.
The 12th game must be played.
