College Football "Final 4" Committee


Recommended Posts

I didn't catch them all but some of the names included in this 13-person committee, according to ESPN's Mike & Mike are....

 

Oliver Luck

Archie Manning

Condoleeza Rice

Lt. Gen Michael Gould - former Superintendent at the AF Academy

Pat Haden - USC AD

Jeff Long - Arkansas AD

 

From what I see its a pretty distinguished list of former athletes, administrators and educators.

 

This is supposed to supplant the current BCS system and hopefully this morphs into maybe a 12-16 team full-fledged playoff.

 

Finally!!

I'm sorry, but what football qualifications does Condolezza Rice have?,,Every other person oon this list has some sort of football qualifications, whether it be the Superintendent of the AFA, or a reporter, I just would like to know how she fits in. I have nothing against her personally, just seems a bit odd.

This group is shameful ..    

 

An AD for a major power?   C Rice?   She's a "football fan"

 

Luck and Manning are the ONLY creditable people on this list.

 

Total JOKE.

I think its a great group and am looking forward to a playoff system and the end of the BCS

The "committee" is joke...

 

 16 team playoff...        knock off ONE game a year and play through the XMas holiday.  

 

THEN everyone will be happy.

There is such an East Coast and SEC Bias in college football...West Coast games usually start late, so most of the writers on the East Coast either miss, or just read the write-ups of the games, without actually seeing them . There will always be that bias...

 

I hope Oregon keeps winning, then kicks the living crap out of Bama...

Yes....but if Alabama was playing the Ducks in a night game....you can bet your donkey that every one of them would stay up and watch. The late card doesn't hold water.

This is probably a first step toward that playoff, John.

 

The mess that is college football didn't get screwed up over night and it isn't gonna get fixed overnight. For starters.....the bazillions of $$$ that is sloshing around the corrupt pig trough that the college football bowl system is, will probably take more than just "football" people to untangle....or at least make a fair system of. And hopefully leading to a16 team playoff like you said.

 

Let's face it, do we trust or would we rather stick with the NCAA mafiosi that primarily made it what it is....which is the real joke? And what has the BCS system really solved when every other level of college football has an honest playoff?

 

It just might be that some out-of-the-box input from respected administrators like Condi Rice (former Stanford provost) and Lt.Gen Gould could be valuable and finally get us an fair system that produces an entertaining tournament and a clear champion. And say what you want about Pat Haden, but he is committed to cleaning out a filthy USC athletic department....and wasted little time on that arrogant dunce, Lane Kiffen.

 

IMO....it's a diverse swath of people intelligent enough to know the issues at hand with a mess that's been unresolved for far too long.

 

There's nothing to lose by giving it a season or two to see what they come up with.

    • Why not have both backs out there then? One of them is bound to be covered by a LB.    Every D is scared of JT, and rightfully so. They have to account for him. Dude is a bruiser but can also catch passes (which he should get targeted more), Who is scared of Hines? I mean really.    They threw two slants to Hines yesterday (both worked), and one the other game. I wouldn't call that often. 
    • I gotta give it up to Gilmore. Whenever he was on Kelce, he made it difficult.    Thomas at safety was actually really good.    Pinter has no biz playing in this O-line. None. Strausser should be fired for not doing anything about it. Not to mention Smith has been really bad ever since he got paid. I hope it's due more than him trying to cover for Pinter.....Either way, super frustrating!   About time they started using Woods.    Sky Moore gave this team 6 points. Thanks dude.  Thanks to KC's kicker as well.  Chandler Jones won this game for the Colts. Big ups to him    As long as Frank is calling plays, this offense will have issues. The guy has zero feel for the game. How many 3rd downs did KC blitz?? Every single time?? Why were no adjustments made?  Ever since he's been here, this team CANNOT run screens. (nor defend them) He called 4-5 of them on 3rd and long, which he's done throughout his time here. WAY too predictable.  Why is he allergic to slants??  Just use Hines as a slot WR already.  Frank costs this team more points (4th down, my sheet says go for it DeR, dEr, DeR) than he helps them score.    Pederson and Siaranni led teams don't have a problem scoring points.   Kenny Moore got waxed on that missed throw by Mahomes.    Good job Yannick finally.    Also, it was nice to see Mclaughlin scoring some points. Whew! 
    • Colts won me 400 dollars yesterday and we are now 1-1-1 more importantly, 400 is sweet though, that will pay my car payment this month - I wish I could've bet 80% of the forum in here, I would be rich today  (just messing with you guys)
    • He doesn’t make guys miss often in space , he normally get tackled and slammed or runs towards the sidelines trying to get to first
