Another weekend of the football faithful wearing red proudly in the Heartland. Along with the Chiefs win today, three other results had to line up just right for the local team to make the playoffs. And they did.
With fortune like this, maybe we’ll get the Penguins to play here, too.
With a nod and a yawn to the major college bowl system, let me repeat my suggestion for Division I-A college football:
- Move all bowl games to August, with eligilibity based on a winning record the previous year, and academic standards met.
- Roll back the 12-game regular season to 11, and limit each team to six home games in the regular season.
- Institute a 16-team playoff, just like what Appalachian State won to be the only NCAA Division I football champion this year.
