    I'm going to stray away from topic here, but screw with college? Do you LIKE this BCS BS? I'd much rather have a playoff system. Cincinatti is undefeated and isn't going to the championship because some computers think they're not as good as others undefeated teams? BS! Let them battle it out on the field, for crying out loud, not on some computer.

    When money is involved in America, ethics and fairness take a back seat. Bowl games provide several avenues for schools to make a lot of money. A playoff system sounds cool, but this country's top minds can't even pull of Cash-4-Clunkers without embarrassing themselves - let alone devise a scheme for a college football playoff system. I like college football the way it is. If some teams wins it all, who really cares, ya know??? College sports don't really mean much, at the risk of hurting some feelings.

    It's all about the money and their sponsorships, really.

    Lucky me I cheer for a team that doesn't need to be in a conference to keep itself. Just like the Packers don't need an owner. The day that I cheer for a single man's "personal toy" you can shoot me in the head.

    How about this. Take the top 8 teams in the BCS rankings and have a playoff. Man that was tough to come with. I might need to rest my brain!:happy0005:

    Absolutely Raptor ... the nation's 'best' team HAS to be somewhere in that jumble of statistic driven rankings. I agree...but then, the battle will be waged by those teams finishing 9 & 10 in the BCS rankings... I can see it all now.

    You're a genius! I don't think anybody's ever thought of that?!?!?

    The only way universities would agree to a playoff is if they are guaranteed as much money as they make from consistently appearing in Bowl Games.

    Also, what determines the top 8? The BCS computer that everybody's currently chomping at the bit to abolish??? Where would the games be played - on a neutral field in warm weather or hosted by teams with the best record?

    It's too messy and then to get the government involved, or nearly as bad, think tanks, is a mistake. We're living in a country that increasingly supports underachievers and losers. This isn't the time to begin to change the rules yet again. Let's let this dark time in our history pass and wait for some more logical and practical heads to prevail before we attempt to change another area of our lives that doesn't need changing. I think the phrase "Bigger fish to fry" couldn't be more descriptive of our current situations.

    I watch college and enjoy it, but the end result always sucks. Something has to be done.

    "We're living in a country that increasingly supports underachievers and losers"... are you one of those town hall people who believe Obama is a Socialist? LMAO!

    You sound like the idiots in Congress over health care and cap in tax. Just "do" something, regardless of WHAT it is or how badly it bankrupts the nation - just do it. Get Whitey at all costs!!! Sense, ethics and morals be damned!!!

    College isn't professional sports, so I would argue that the way it is, is completely reasonable and shouldn't be changed. I think if you did some research, the people that are crying most loudly to have it "changed" are the very people would benefit the most financially in the long run - much like health care and cap in tax. It's sad, but it is joke-like.

    Believe it or not, sometimes doing nothing IS better than ruining something.

    The power's that be don't wanna let anyone else get a chance because it is all about money. What if the NFL was this way. Oh the Patriots have lost 5 games...but the computers still think they are better so let's put them in, it's complete and utter nonsense. There needs to be a playoff. That's why Congress is getting involved. Do they have bigger fish to fry? I'd say yes, but the BCS isn't going to change, someone has to make them.

    I'm not going to argue politics on this forum, but having health care privatized thus making it a for profit system is one of the dumbest things ever, and if that's a novelty to you, well then that is too bad.

    There will not be a playoff system because the people that run these institutions don't want them. It might be romantic to believe the way you do, but it isn't realistic.

    As far as health care, it is currently privatized and it is the main reason why it is the BEST in the world. Wake up, people.

    Watch Favre tomorrow dissect the Bungles.:)

    Best in the world? Are you nuts? Last I checked we were ranked either 37th or 38th in Health Care. France is ranked #1, and guess what, they have Socialized Medicine.

    There will be a playoff system because the government is getting involved.

    The Vikings lose to good teams and beat the crappy teams, we get it.

    And don't try using the Packers as an example because this isn't the same Packers team Minny faced earlier in the season.

    In literal terms it is, but anyone with a brain knew that I did not mean it that way.

    Like the bengals that beat you already? Not to mention stomping a mudhole in the packers twice this year.Hopefully we can give you another beatdown at the dome in the playoffs which would make my season complete. It is quite funny how the common foe rule is only in use on this forum when it favors the packers. To be the man you have to beat the man if you ask me and since the Vikings are the man so far I say don't talk about it and prove it.

    Huh? B,b,b,but I d,d,d,don't believe in ghosts!

    *Saw something strange, in the neighborhood*

    *Calls Ghostbusters*

    Seriously, how did you get back here? I really wish you were here last week when the Cardinals rolled, instead of this week when the Vikes looked so damn impressive (again).
