64 team playoff except all games sans championship played (college) overtime-style.

college football needs to chop itself literally in half. five big leagues, plus six additional schools that can be relegated/promoted for poor performance. eff the bowls. eff the shitty directional schools. it's a waste of everyone's time.

We (Big 12) are undefeated in bowl games this year so far (2-0), but we were underdogs in both those games and in all five remaining Big 12 bowl games!  Holy moly, have we ever had every single Big 12 team be an underdog in bowl season before?!? Today we have West Virginia as a 3 point underdog to rough ridin' Syracuse (LOL), and Iowa State (our OC's old school who was better than him and fired him for not being good enough) giving 2.5 against Washington State.

no, excellent take!

a tuesday night MAC football game probably registers a quarter of a percentage point tops on a vegas book's overall weekly handle. putting them in a lower level league (FBS+) doesn't mean you can't bet on them. every FCS game this year, for the first time ever, was lined. sides and totals. even teams from the crummiest leagues.

a 70-team CFB would be infinitely better than the crap we have now. every conference could schedule eight league games each and play four non-league - one from each conference per year, on a rotational basis. it would all be predetermined. so k-state would play wash st, purdue, clemson, tenn one year; then oregon st, iowa, duke, kentucky the next; then arizona, michigan, wake, georgia the next; and so on.

we'd see far more two and three-loss teams remain in the picture for a CFB playoff spot, and evaluating the quality of teams would be far easier after getting rid of all the crap directional schools and FCS's that water down the schedule. it would be a big win for TV, and returning to your original point, a big win for sportsbooks. the overflow of marquee matchups could be spilled into the weekdays, there would be far more games of interest on weekends, and everyone is happy.

looking forward to nicholls state in next year's opener though, should be a good one!

If they make it an 8 team playoff, I’m totally fine with keeping conferences as is.

They are the absolute worst. I flew back into Des Moines on Wednesday when these rubes were flying out and that airport was disgustingly Istatey.

I also love that they are bragging about how many people they have there and it seems as if Washington State has just as many.

Lol at the refs bending Matt Campbell over and slipping him the one-eyed Willy in that first half.

They didn't bend over crap. Even if you want to claim that wasn't targeting the one they missed on the wide receiver two plays before certainly was. And giving WSU a taunting call for extending the ball out ahead of old dude was a gigantic horse crap call.

They are so unaware that it's laughable that this is a thing. The upper deck of the Alamodome was completely empty, but hey they sure drink a lot of cheap beer.
