I thought Cincy represented themselves very well. A great season and yes, I believe they deserved to be there.
I agree I'm sure many thought total blowout but there secondary was good just no way they could score much which was expected heck they did better than Irish and couple more in their attempts

Same ol same ol…semifinal curb stomps…all this talk of expanding the playoffs.

Why?

It’s pretty dang obvious they can’t even find 4 teams that are good enough to be there, year in and year out.

I said the same thing a while back. Why force us to watch more blowouts just to get to the same results.

oh i can asnwer that- someone makes a s...load of money with an increased field.
Will they though? If they go to 8 teams and Alabama ends up playing a 2-3 loss team and the whole country knows it will be a blowout, will it generate a lot of revenue, or will it cause more players to opt out?

just think ncaa basketball- we'll watch anything related to a NC playoff- generating money for tv and ncaa. and there would be just enough upsets to make it viable and remember a ton of cash these days is in the support of the gambling industry- they prop up anything that brings in gambling revenue.
Enhanced playoff fields certainly will do that.

The thing about the playoff expansion is it would allow a team who gets hot after a rough start to still have a chance butch like the ncaa tournament. There have been a lot of years when a team got hit down the stretch and made a final 4 run.

Good point, NC State '83 for example.

Exactly what I was thinking of…..UConn the year they had kemba. There are tons of examples in college basketball which is what makes the tournament the best post season format of any sport and what keeps college footballs postseason as boring as ever. 25 meaningless games, and then 3 meaningful games that tend to be blowouts.

I can't argue on the blowouts and expansion but one reason I'd like see it is fact that say Bama who we all think is top 4 team if woulda lost to Ga would have missed playoffs then could had possible Cincy vs Ga champ game which woulda sucked I want a competitive final. So expansion would allow for a good team to slip up even playing in tough conf and still get in as is you have be nearly perfect.

It would seem so, but you have to toss that QB situation into the pot and stir. A lot of hard core fans think Sam's three years were wasted on poor defense and lack of imagination on offense.

Just because you do something often does not mean you are good at it. Like Mack, he had championship history but also had been out of coaching a long time. A lot of UNC fans are happy now, and I'm pleased for them.


None of them are as happy as they were 3 years ago lol
