Tennis is my greatest passion. My Dad taught me to play when I was six-years-old and, as a kid, I idolized the great Ivan Lendl. I competed in the juniors and then played for one year at Princeton University. I now play in USTA recreational leagues, but I treat every match like Wimbledon.
I love to watch tennis on TV and I haven't missed a Grand Slam Final since 1986. The greatest match I have ever seen was the 2008 Wimbledon Final between Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal.
A NCAA FOOTBALL PLAYOFF for NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP A Simple Guide by J D
FACT: There are always 13 Saturdays in the 92 days of September thru November
STEP ONE: Require all teams to finish their 12 GAMES by the END of November. There would be time for ONE OPEN DATE . Or TWO using the LAST SATURDAY in AUGUST. STEP TWO: Have an NCAA selection committee pick the TOP 32 Football Teams: FOUR Divisions would be set up: East, South, Midwest, West. Four Number One Seeds would be chosen in each Division and progressively on down: Number Two through Eight. SEED Number One would play Number Eight, Number Two plays Number Seven and so on.
STEP THREE: SIXTEEN GAMES would be played ( 32 Chosen Teams) on the First Saturday in December. The SWEET SIXTEEN winners would play on the second Saturday in December. STEP FOUR: The Elite Eight Winners are in the HIGHEST FOUR BOWLS called CHAMPIONSHIP BOWLS and would be played on New Years Day. STEP FIVE: The FOUR QUARTER FINAL TEAMS play their TWO GAMES on January 8 or later. STEP SIX : THE FINALS: 2 WINNERS would play a week later near January 17 for the NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP. Conclusion: Only FOUR TEAMS would NEED to PLAY past the Holiday Weekend of January the 1st. And the rest of the Teams could go back to their studies and Classes.
Also: The 30 plus BOWLS are kept . The LOSERS in the FIRST or SECOND Round can PLAY again in any BOWLS but the FOUR CHAMPIONSHIP BOWLS and win and rejoin the Top Twenty five.
I'm not sure if my message sent, so I'm writing a post. As far as the formatting issue, you might want to fill out the Site Performance Log to let B/R know about that (http://bleacherreport.com/pages/siteperformancelog). Great work on the piece though! I enjoyed reading it.
