Just like any other fan I love CFB. I find myself disliking the BCS more and more, and the NCAA what a sham to say they don't make any money. So what do they do go after a kid trying to make a buck when they know they'll make millions off him. This almost makes me angrier than when they put Oklahoma on probation because Barry Switzer bought a suit for a player to attend his father's funeral. If you ask me the NCAA needs to be over hauled or done away with.
The BCS has to come up with something that doesn't look at a teams schedule, I mean the SEC has it wrapped up. It sounded like a good idea when it first came to town, but I want to ask you does the best Basketball team go to the final dance? No. So now we are leaving a 4 team play off to the BCS. Don't be surprised if you see 3 SEC teams in that that line up. Don't get me wrong the SEC is the absolute best conference in CFB today but what happens to those teams who go undefeated and only climb to 2nd in the final standings? Yes there are conferences that are stronger than others, but don't you think there could be that one perfect game where the underdog wins. If you don't think it can happen ask an Ok Sooner what they think of Boise St. A team that got hot on 1 play, that's CFB.
How to fix? I say super conferences. Eight 16 team super conferences and play it off by conference champions. But this won't work as long as the dollar is more important to schools than creating a balanced playing field. Yes I'm talking shared revenue. Oops said a dirty word.
After it's all said and done I'm just a fan who hopes we get back to the game and forget about the money.

It is

Is anyone else having a problem getting to the last page of these threads?

Can't go beyond page 1 of any thread. It seems FN has been hacked big time. Once you hit submit you need to exit the thread for it to post one time. Ignore the open/save message you get when trying to post; otherwise you get multiple posts. For the time being, practically speaking no thread is good for more than 20 posts that can be accessed.

Noticed a throwdown message that said FN won't be fixed until the weekend. Don't know if this is true or not.

Test

August 22, 2013  02:35 PM ET

TEST FAIL. FN pay your IT monkeys more money and put them to work....

August 22, 2013  02:52 PM ET

Just another test to take a closer look at the failure...

You know, Ajax and Javascript aren't rocket science. Even my undergraduates know they need to close their tags! Assuming, of course, it was your own actions and not the fake ID spammers.

Thanks for the reply, FF. It's nice to know I'm not alone.

#18 is so far over my head it may as well be in Farsi.
