The BCS probably couldn't have picked a better year to call it quits, and now college football gets the facelift we've all been waiting for -- or so it appears. As we head toward the College Football Playoff, everyone gets a fair chance, right?
For those clamoring for a Division I football playoff system and expressing critical indifference to the current bowl system where teams with losing records are "rewarded" with a bowl invite, be patient -- this BCS cartel controlled system itself may be its eventual undoing.
This new playoff plan still has more than a few important kinks to be worked out. From here, it feels more like an engagement than an actual wedding. It will probably come to full fruition, but there is a good chance at least someone is going to regret it.
I'm as happy as every other fan that college football is finally getting a playoff, but after evaluating what we've missed out on as a result of a lack of it, the question remains: What took you guys so long?
Last year, Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban became inspired to try to help bring about a college football playoff -- "The more I think about it, the more sense it makes as opposed to buying a baseball team," Cuban said in December.
