8 Team Playoff on the Horizon
« on: December 28, 2019, 10:24:56 PM »
Have you noticed the NCAA scheduled a 2 week break between the semis and the Championship final? 

Do they really need 2 weeks off?  Heck no.  Betcha this is test balloon.  They can now slip in a 4  game Q final new years weekend followed by the semi and the final 7 days apart.

4 more games will put a lot of TV rev in the pocket of the NCAA to fund all of the concussion settlements coming down the road.without impacting the revenue stream conferences and teams have come to rely on.

Judging by the number of injuries in tonight's game, Clemson could probably use the extra week to heal up.  LSU, not so much.

At least we have a four team playoff.  Under the old rules, #3 ranked, undefeated defending champion Clemson would have been on the outside looking in.

This should be a really entertaining Championship. I like both teams. QB’s are amazing athletes!

I’ll be cheering for Clemson but LSU is where I’d place my bet.
