    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.

    Come on man, How can you honestly say Gurley is the best running back in the nation? Even the NFL scouts say Abdullah takes that spot.

    You're 100% correct on it being crazy to vote Motley for ACC POY, but the shot at Loeffler was unnecessary when his specialty is known for developing QBs.

    Please verify this for me. I just read the article about Kahil McKenzie and wondered about something in it. You said that Kahil's dad is Reggie McKenzie who works for the Oakland Raiders. I thought or I'm sure that Reggie was an All-American at the University of Michigan so why the implying that he went to Tennessee?

    only two active quarterbacks have started 12 or more regular season games without a loss: Everett Golson and Jameis Winston, INCORRECT ....Golson only started 11 games in the reg season as he sat out the BYU game due to a concussion the previous week
