Playoffs? PLAYOFFS? Don't talk to me about playoffs?! [Again ...]

It is the college football post-season again. It's 2016 and again we have controversy as to who legitimately belongs in the playoff. The more things change, yes. The more they remain the same. I first proposed a sixteen-team playoff ... in 1994. [ ... ]

The landscape has changed somewhat since back then. There have been comings and goings - and reorganizations - of NCAA college conferences. Presently we have "The Power 5" and the "Group of 5".

I now believe the sweet spot for playoff teams is eight. Take the 5 conference winners and choose 3 more by our "Blue Ribbon Panel" from the remaining teams to fill the tournament.



Another Trivia Question ...

We will ALWAYS have: "What team was the LAST to play for a tie in CFB (0-0) and the FIRST to play - and WIN - in OT (beat Fresno St).


Oregon was the only school in 2015-16 to make the post season in football, basketball, and baseball.

In college football, Oregon :
A - had the nation's longest Top 25 streak at 9 straight seasons through the 2015 season.

B - is the only team in CFB to win 9+ games in each of the last 9 seasons (including 2015).

C - has (as of the 2017 Oregon State game) 80 games of 40+ points since 2009. A wide margin over the next closest team to do so...

D - owns the NCAA record for consecutive games with a TD pass (82 as of the 2016 Virginia  game) dating back to 4 September, 2010....
