Georgia is the new standard.
Georgia is the new Alabama.
And, yes, for now, Smart is the new Saban. That’s the way things work in college football.
Georgia has painted college football a different shade of red. The Bulldogs are THE dawgs. And here’s a tip of my hat to Stetson.
Who had fun last night? The Bulldogs and their fans. Who else had fun? Nobody. That’s a problem.
Just as there is no question that back-to-back Georgia was the best team in college football in 2022, there is no question TCU was one of the top four. The Frogs earned their way into the CFP. They beat a very good Michigan team in the semis.
Then they got beat 65-7. And it was in no way a “fluky” 65-7.
That’s a problem. For the sport.
So now we’re going to expand the CFP to 12 teams? Borderline insanity.
And some idiots want to expand beyond 12? Clinical insanity.
Money is the driver here, of course. And I get that. I am in no way anti-money. I like money.
But this insatiable greed may kill the Golden Goose. Even for college football’s tv partners. Nobody’s gonna want to see that stuff. Hell, people will turn off the tv. They’ll go bowling or to the park or to the movies. They may even be forced to have actual conversations with family members.
65-7. And now you want a system that will annually produce some 72-3 playoff games? All because of some romantic “Hoosiers” fantasy?
I can’t say this often enough or strongly enough.
This ain’t effin’ basketball. And I don’t ever want it to be.
There are other issues to sort out in college football. The portal. NIL. Ok, we’ll address them here. That’s why God created the offseason.
Damar is back in Buffalo. God had a hand in that, too.
