College Football Playoff?

In this 60 Minutes interview clip President elect Barack Obama discusses his desire to see a college football playoff system and states that he'll "throw his weight around" to make it happen.

This got me thinking... An 8-team playoff system would be amazing. Aside from making the Las Vegas Bowl an instant fan favorite, it would also crown a true national champion. How many championships would Pete Carroll have won the last 6 years had there been a college football playoff? 2 0f 6 isn't bad. But who would bet against Coach Carroll in an a playoff system? No one prepares better for bowl games than Pete Carroll.

Until that actually happens we'll have to sit around and watch the BCS... compute a national championship game.

Week 10 Recap

A few important games this past weekend shook up the National Championship picture even further. Our USC Trojans handled business and destroyed the Washington Huskies 56-0, posting the 3 shutout of the season for the Trojans. While we're still on the outside looking in with regards to the BCS title game, the rankings were given a good shakeup by the likes of this man:

The Mad Scientist

Mike "I Love Brain I Need A" Leach pulled out all the stops and went for the throat during the closing seconds of his game against the Texas Longhorns. With the ball on the Texas 28 yard line, a timeout remaining and 8 seconds left in the game, your average coach would probably have settled for a field goal, but not Leach. He opted to go for all the marbles and dialed in a play that threw into double coverage that could have ended very badly. Michael Crabtree raced down the sideline, side-stepped two defenders and scored the winning touchdown in a thrilling game between the Texas rivals.

You can bet that there was no one happier than this guy:

The win put Texas Tech at No. 2 in the BCS rankings. USC sits at No. 7, hoping that the teams above them lose a few times.
