why there should be a playoff system
The college bowl games make tons of money and they are tradition. Having a playoff system would produce more games which equal more money. NCAA D-1 AA has a playoff system, and smalls schools like Boise state and Texas Christian University will have to compete hard for the next 10 years to be able to play for the national championship. For the past couple of years every sports fan has been hearing that the NCAA is going to change its plan and have a playoff system. NCAA talks and talks about a playoff system, they say it's too much for the student athletes. These are just some reasons that surround the whole playoff system establishment.

Having a playoff system would produce more games, thus making more money. Personally, having a playoff system would produce much more money because by adding 1 to 4 more games to the season. There would be so much more attendance just because it is a playoff game. There would be many more sponsors because a playoff game just brings so more excitement to the table. Just imagine a game with Miami (Fl.) vs. Ohio State, then the next week Miami (Fl.) vs. Nebraska. That would bring so much attendance and more TV. This would be all

over the world. Those two games by themselves would have people thinking just how great that game would be on TV. That would just bring so much exposure to both teams and the game itself. All the NCAA cares about is money and the game.

NCAA Division 1 AA football is just as competitive as Division 1(D-1). The only difference between the two is a playoff system. Every other football program such as D-II and D-III have a playoff system, so how come D-1 does not. D-1 AA has a 4 round playoff system that has 16 teams and only last 4 weeks. The championship game is finished before Christmas. D-1 does not finish its championship game until Jan. 7. This gives the academic athletes only 4 days to themselves. One of the biggest reasons why people do not want a playoff system is because it will make the season last too long, then how come D-1 AA, II, and III are able to do it. Former Texas Tech coach, Mike Leach said, "That the length of the season is just another smokescreen." Meaning that the length of the season is just another excuse they are using.

Teams like Boise State or Texas Christian University (TCU) will not be in the National championship game unless they go undefeated for the next 10 years just because they are small schools. Boise State, for the past two years, has gone 26-1. What does that show you? That says that they either have had an easy schedule or actually had a dominate team. They have been said to have an easy schedule, so for the 2009-10 schedule they added more ranked teams. They finished the season with a 14-0 record. Who did they play in the bowl game? Another small school, TCU. Both Florida and Texas, at the end of the year, finished higher than Boise State

even though Boise had a better record than both schools. Florida went 27-2 in the 2008-2010 seasons. Boise was given a chance, and they played in the Tostitos bowl game and they won. So if they compete again like they did in the 2009-10 season they should have a chance to play in the national championship game but they will have to wait. Texas played in the national championship bowl game and they lost to Alabama. Florida played in a higher bowl than Boise state and TCU and they won. From 2008 to 2010 season TCU had a 21-5 record. TCU finished their 2009-10 season with a 12-1 record. TCU has a great program, Boise and TCU must be able to compete hard for the next couple of years to have a number 1 spot.

No one knows the real reason why the NCAA does not change and just pick up the playoff system. It would bring more money and more exposure. The NCAA D-1 AA has a playoff system why not D-1. Boise state and TCU are going to have tough times. These are reasons why there should be a playoff system and many people believe the same idea. There are just so many questions to be asked. Who knows when the NCAA will change it, but many hope it is soon.

My coach always told me that the best ways to rule over the slaves is to beat them till they don't got no thinking's! As Napoleon said "A soldier will fight long and hard for a bit of colored ribbon." All these football players are weak and pathetic slaves who have never seen the glory or gain the honor from the battlefield, or surviving out in nature. All they do is put on tight pants and roll around in the grass while! Who needs there a waste to a society, and why should so many people waste time out of there lives to watch football on a TV. Then watch Das Super Bulls. Hast the slaves have created there own new religion based on consumerism, stereotypes on how a man should be, and promotes patriotism, school, and all other corrupt contraptions made by the capitalists on are culture AY!

Football es stupid sport! THe Quarterback gets all the fame and troughs a piece of rubber, why a joke! He and and few other people are viewed, while most of the players have useless positions in the "team". In basketball and soccer, badminton, etc. Require much more participation and have overall more fun. Also most sports don't have so much rules, hiearchy, and control!

Take your filthy Saxons back to SCOTLAND SLAVE~!
