Thanks for the info on the hoops thread. I kinda' figured that might be the case as far as activity level.
I really would be interested even if Michigan wasn't playing so well, of course that doesn't hurt either! ;)

Chip Kelley decided to stay at Oregon rather than go to the NFL.

Good move as I'm not sure his offense would work well at the next level. Plus Oregon is a fun team to watch, so good for the college game that he's sticking around.

Go to the Browns and try to run high speed spread option that has yet to be proven in the NFL where everyone is fast with Colt McCoy, Brandon Weeden, and Trent Richardson and slowly build the roster with a couple big stars each year.... or.... Use Nike money to have the best facilities, equipment, and a never ending stream of flashy uniforms to lure in the fastest kids from all over the country.

Chip Kelly: Uhhh yeah, I'm staying at Oregon.


Probably not anything like how it really went down, but that's the way I see it.

Sure that type of thinking was part of it.

Wasn't just the Browns though as the Eagles and Cardinals were also interested.

Jeez, it's clear who the refs are rooting for! Not that it's going to make a huge difference if Notre Dame can't stop the run but good lord! Yeah, wait until the ball is practically in your lap, then call fair catch, and get interfered with BY YOUR OWN GUY!!!!

I couldn't believe they didn't at least review that one catch from Eifert. In regular season games they review just about anything but in the BCS title game not? What are they on a tight budget and are paying a per review fee or something?

You might as well add a "Damn you Ohio State" also. They finished undefeated and would have been in the title game (assuming they would have won the Big Ten championship) if they hadn't been on post season probation.

Because Notre Dame would have a chance to beat another crap Big 12 team and claim a title they wouldn't deserve?

Yeah, I'd rather watch Alabama beat the shit out of them instead, thanks Baylor.

It's pretty neat. The depth helps with telling how far away coverage is on pass plays etc.

Added benefit of not getting many commercials, mostly just highlights and game pics with some ads forother espn 3d stuff like the winter X games.

This is the most sorry championship game I have ever watched. Too bad Oregon is not in this game, ND and manti teo are the most overrated team/player ever.:fridge:

There are those who said this day would never come. What are they to say now?

And this ladies and gentlemen, is why we need an eight team playoff.

Scrub teams hanging onto a long-dead legacy like ND would get bounced early on and we could see something along the lines of a rematch between Georgia and Alabama.

That's pretty much the game last night. Hot girl with an old man gawking at her.

So the BCS gave us 4 of 5 blowouts. Thanks for such a quality system.

Since Oregon was brought up... They would have lost too. Maybe not by 28 but still it would have been bad. How do I figure? Oregon struggled against a good defense Stanford and lost. Oregon offense doesn't work against top defenses as proven by history. Alabama is #1 in scoring defense.

Until the BCS goes to at least 16 will we finally see competitive big bowl games. This top 4 stuff won't give us that.

I'm confused as to how a 16 game playoff would have given us more competitive games. The first round of the playoffs would have been the same blowouts. The problem this year was that there really weren't any great teams besides maybe 'Bama. Just my 2 cents.

Yeah, the more teams you put in the playoffs the more blow outs you get.

And no guarantee you get a good title game. Look how many Super Bowls have been blow outs over the years. Some years there's just a team or two that's way better than everyone else.

Alabama vs. Oregon would have been a much better match up. Alabama's defense isn't infallible against explosive spread offenses. See their loss to Texas A&M as case in point.

Yeah, the thread will die off until August unless there's some more realignment news or something. I don't expect much of anything to happen until the Maryland-ACC lawsuit is settled and we see how much of the $50 million or so buyout they have to pay.

Only other thing will be MWC expanding--San Diego State will probably re-join Boise at the least, and maybe they grab a couple other Big East leftovers or incoming members.

The last super bowl blowout was 10 years ago.

I stand corrected. Haven't paid a ton of attention to the NFL since the 90s, and back then it seemed like it was always the Cowboys or 49ers blowing someone out.

I don't think the college game will have that kind of parity though. NFL has the hard salary cap, where as there are HUGE money and resource differences between the elite programs and everyone else even when just looking at the power conference teams.

So there will always be some mismatches in 8 or (especially) 16 team playoffs as champs from weaker conferences get in etc. and get stomped by the huge money programs like Bama, Oregon etc. that can afford all the fancy facility things to entice recruits, pay top coaches 4-5+ million to stay around etc.

A 4 team playoff would probably have the least amount of blow outs. But there will still be cases where a team like ND that played a weaker schedule runs the table and gets in while stronger 1 loss teams get left out.

If it happened this year A&M would be left out. They might be the best team out there. Their two losses combined for only 7 points. They were the first game of Johnny Football career and the other against top 10 LSU. 16 would cover the good teams and allow everyone to prove their spot. Giving us competitive games in the 2nd, 3rd, and Championship Game.

Keep in mind that correlation does not equal causation. Furthermore, there is no correlation that playoffs =/= blowouts. The reason we have witnessed less blowouts in the Superbowl has to do with parity, which can be attributed to the greatest QB era in the history of the league.

Not this year... Florida was the #3 team and they were hammered by Louisville ranked #20 in Week 15. ND couldn't show up in Alabama so who says they favor any better against Oregon. So both games potentially blowouts. Oregon again struggles against real defenses so Alabama still wins with blowout.

With 16, you get teams like A&M, Oklahoma, Clemson, and of course my Noles. All teams which on a given day can take down the giants.

I wasn't making any correlations, just responding to the post that said that there has been a lot of super bowl blowouts. Of course you won't get magical parity in ncaaf because of a playoff. But you will more teams that have a chance to play.

A playoff isn't going to fix the most significant problem with college football, which is that these kids need to be financially compensated.

I'm a proponent of a playoff system because it affords more teams the ability to compete for the title but I have no illusions that it will result in a more competitive field. There is no guarantee that those additional games would have been more competitive. Many folks, including quite a few people on this board, thought Oregon vs KSU was going to be a competitive game but it wasn't. The idea that somehow you can guarantee more competitive games is simply false.
