All the hype, all the media play doesn't make me want to watch college football. The first 4 games were about as exciting as the remake of "The Longest Yard." I'd rather watch paint dry, grass grow, or possibly eat tacks. Louisville beat the Murray State Racers 73-10! Why even play the game? Just give the Cardinals a win and Brohm 375 yards, 5 TD passes and call it a day. The combined scores for the games were a nailbiting 212-20. Now that's prime-time drama. These are many reasons why NFL football will never take a back seat to the "staged" college football. The NFL have two week one match-ups of Indy vs. N.O. and the Bolts vs. Bears. These are going to be close, very entertaining games. Not until the NCAA starts playing meaningful games like these early in the season and create a playoff system will I ever call myself a real fan. A playoff system of the top eight teams in the country would allow the early season schedule to be more difficult for the top teams. No longer would schedule makers be fearful of a disappointing lost, or a letdown early in the year. Teams would have ample enough time to recover, climb back in the polls and make a push for the tournament. In December, I predict another team will be left holding their jock when the championship game participants are chosen.
On Saturday I'll be watching the CSU vs. CU game with much interest. A state divided. Pitting brother against brother, friend against friend, Mother vs daughter. Now that's what college football is all about. The true spirit of the game. Two teams evenly matched, no matter how talentless.
