A Modest Football Proposal

Welcome back loyal readers! I have for you a wonderful new update, courtesy of a family friend (as it turns out, I am not the only one who knows everything about college football). A couple of weeks ago, the Angry Football Parents invited the Angry Football Roommate and myself over for dinner, along with the Angry Football Twenty Feet Tall Family Friend. While discussing football, AFTFTFF had this brilliant idea on how to fix the BCS. As much as I would like to take credit for this, I can't. But, here it is, in easy, step-by-step format for Boise State fans to be able to read (I kid cause I love.... some of you):

1. Abolish conference Championship games. This is a key point, and besides, do we will need to see Oklahoma/Texas beat Mizzou the same day that Florida beats Alabama? No, we do not.
2. On conference championship weekend, you have the first round of a playoff. The playoff consists of teams 1-8, in standard playoff format (1 vs 8, 2 vs 7, etc.).
2a. Nobody cares about team 9. You can make that argument no matter how many teams you have in a playoff, and you have to make the cut somewhere.
3. The four winners go on to meet in a rotating selection of the BCS bowls, scheduled for the normal dates.
4. But what about the four losers? Well, although they are now ineligible for a national championship, they can still go to a bowl game. Hell, they can still go to a BCS bowl (just not one of the two playoff ones). If #7 Penn STAAAAAAAATTTTTEEEEE beats #2 Florida, nobody thinks that Florida's season should be over. Instead, they still get to play in a prestigious bowl game.
5. The winners of the two BCS bowls that are part of the playoff meet in the National Championship, held at a different BCS bowl location than the two that their games were played at (so that one team doesn't gain a day of practice by not having to travel). The winner of this game is the true Champion.

So there you have it. The AFTFTFF has fixed college football forever. As always, questions/comments/hate-mail/advertisements to enlarge my body parts can be sent to

Until next time!
