Even though my alma mater sucks like a bilge, this has been an unusually compelling year for college football.
I wish like the dickens that the playoff system were starting this year instead of next. A four-team playoff between Oregon, K-State, Notre Dame and IMO, Alabama, would be March Madness on steroids, EPO, HGH and those weird brown pills you can only get in Mexico. So much variation in styles, plus near-perfect regional and conference diversity. If you don't want to see Barner vs. the Bama defense, or Optimus Klein vs. ND, you're just not that into football.
Also, if Johnny Manziel doesn't at least get invited to the Heisman ceremony, the whole thing will be a trav-a-sham-mockery. The guy is on pace to have one of the greatest individual seasons ever, and is doing so under unbelievable pressure as a redshirt freshman on a team that was thoroughly average last year. Compare his numbers to Vick, Newton and Tebow. You'll be stunned.
What say you, VSalon?
