NCAAF  > General NCAAF  > How much longer can the Big 10 stop a real national championship playoff?
May 1, 2009, 08:33 PM
The henchmen of the Big 10 (perhaps more accurately called the Itty Bitty Ten for their actual football results) have objected to every change presented for creating a true national playoff. Such actions are understandable when you consider
1) just how much money the Big 10 gets from the bowl system; and
2. just how badly their leading teams get exposed when they have to actually play quality out-of-conference foes.

But today's hearings in Congress elevate this issue and maybe the Feds will finally put an end to these shenanigans and give the vast majority of Americans what we really want-a true national championship playoff. Classy coaches such as Pete Carroll and Mack Brown and virtually all of the SEC are in favor of a playoff. Let's hope that we can finally get a playoff system established, just as it is in every other NCAA sport.
