Add One More To The Party

So I did the egregious - I forgot to mention DawgSports as yet another member of the suddenly growing island of college football bloggers and fans who do not seek a playoff.  There has to be a better way to word that.

Worse, he sorta not really nominated me for one of those nebulous college football blog awards.  Apparently Le Playoffs is a modest hit.

In my view, CFR's piece "Le Playoffs" effectively answered the arguments even of articulate playoff advocates like The Lawgiver, so CFR's effort gets a nod here for appealing to my head, even though my formal nomination went to a piece that appealed to my heart.

So to Kyle, my apologies.  There's really no excuse, I've read a few of your fine entries that hold the line against a playoff and somehow you slipped my mind.

Anyway, to my readers, we'll get back to the everyday nitty gritty of college football quite soon.  Not everything has to be about playoffs, I know, but it's important nonetheless to bare some teeth every now and then and make it known that the playoff solution isn't universally appealing.

Much obliged, CFR. I figured it was just an oversight, but I couldn't resist razzing you just a little.

I hope you and yours are doing well this holiday season.

Let's not have a playoff. Let's don't even have a season. We could forego playing any games and just let the polls and computers pick the conference champions and the national champion.

That would be the ultimate BCS system. All the post season awards could be guessed at too. Even the All America Team could be a complete joke just like this thought process. This basically what you pea-brains are advocating.

You can put syrup on a turd but, it's still a turd and, most people won't swallow it.
